See that fire road? How about that gravel grinder you've always thought about doing? Of course, 99% of the time you're riding to work or just around town. Straggler is manufactured from Surly's favored chromoly tubing, paired with a lugged chromoly fork. The frame is responsive, nimble, super durable, and showcases steel's inherent ability to dampen road buzz. 650b wheels are a great size for smaller frames; they provide a zippy ride while leaving you with plenty of toe clearance, even with fenders. The Straggler also has clearance for 42mm tires, a full set of rack and fender eyelets, and custom rear dropouts that let you ride the bike singlespeed or geared. The wide-range SRAM Apex drivetrain will get you through all the ups and downs of any ride, and snappy SRAM Apex DoubleTap shifters make it easy to get through the gears. And control is easy with Hayes CX-Expert disc brakes, providing tons of all-weather, all-terrain stopping power. In fact, all the bikes Joe Bike carries come with disc brakes.

Let's talk tires. We find the knobby Knard tires that the Straggler comes with excel on gravel or other shifty surfaces but actually are not bad for city riding either, as they take potholes and such with extra ease. That said, most Straggler buyers use the bike for city riding most of the time, and street tires hold better in the rain (on paved streets) than knobby tires, so we offer our customers an inexpensive swap to street tires if they want, either at time of purchase or up to a couple of weeks later.
