Soma Wolverine Touring Rohloff
$4,300.00 - $5,100.00
Now that the Wolverine has passed the stiffness test that lets us match Rohloff with belt drive, we've created the Weltgrinder, a complete touring build that gives you Rohloff's famously wide gear range and extraordinary durability along with Gates Carbon Drive for lower maintenance and greater longevity than a chain. Jones Loop carbon handlebars give you multiple hand positions for long days on the road, with superior positioning for both climbing and descending. The Sinewave Cycles Beacon dynamo system lets you charge smartphones and external battery packs while you pedal. Front and rear racks (Jandd Extreme and Surly Formerly Known as Nice Rack, respectively). 36-spoke Velocity Dyad rims, Panaracer Pasela 700 x 38 or WTB Byways 650b x 47 tires, Chris King headset, Thomson seatpost...you get the picture. The price includes all of these things; there's a nondynamo build and a dynamo build. Weltgrinder includes tons of American-made components like the Velocity rims, the Gates system, the Chris King headset, the Sinewave Beacon, the Thomson seatpost, and the carbon Jones Loop Bars, along with the German-made hubs and lights, and let's not forget the English saddle. This is truly a bike built for the world. Are you grossly unfamiliar with Jones Loop bars? We could not explain their virtues better than this copy from the Jones website: Better handling and power output The shape of the Jones Loop bar really allows you to throw the bike around in technical situations. With your hands in the wide and rearward grip position you can keep your weight back and your arm stance wide for stable and controlled technical or steep downhill riding. This position is just like having a wide bar with a short stem, similar to a downhill or dirt jumping bike, but with more sweep. This additional sweep brings your arms in closer to your side to allow more comfortable and natural use of your arm and back muscles. The sweep also allows you to push and swing the bike side to side with more control and power. It's especially beneficial when climbing. These bars allow you to really get up on top of the pedals and grind out low cadence standing power for climbing in hard gears which is why the bar is so popular with single speeders. Your hands pull more towards your shoulders, a more natural 'pull' with stronger muscles. This allows you to push down with more force at the pedal. In extremely tight turns with the bar close to 90 degrees your outside arm and wrist is not taken to the edge of their flexible range as with traditional bars. This provides more control and stability on switch backs. More comfortable and ergonomic The sweep matches your natural hand and wrist positions creating a stronger hand and body position. With an H-Bar, your weight is evenly distributed across the width of your hand instead of being focused at the out side edge of your hand, the main cause of finger numbness. This 'even grip pressure' on the bar allows a better, more secure grip on the bar. This is especially nice if you chose to ride a fully rigid bike. The many and varied hand positions greatly reduce hand numbness and wrist pain. The H-Bar also reduces back pain since it has a range of hand positions from rear to front. This range allows you to move around and stretch your back. This is a bar you can ride all day.

Surly Disc Trucker
$1,449.00
Surly's Long Haul Trucker enjoys a reputation as one of the best riding and most value-packed touring bikes out there. It's been around long enough to be tested in the real world, in all kinds of places, with all kinds of loads on all kinds of roads. Sometimes, however, a combination of load, climate and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a standard rim-brake LHT can provide. That's where the Disc Trucker comes in. Disc Trucker is a Long Haul Trucker specifically designed for the unique forces discs impose. Surly made sure it can run discs, racks, and fenders with no jury rigging, a somewhat unique feature they've just now decided to call Simulpatibility. Most of the components on the complete bike are the same as the standard LHT; parts chosen for their balance of technical capability, durability, and value. The drivetrain uses the sort of wide gearing you will need for loaded and unloaded travel, cable operated disc brakes for their proven reliability and ease of service, and hubs that are durable and easy to maintain. You'll need to outfit it with the extras you want, like fenders and racks. Surly doesn't include that stuff because everybody's needs are different. From the casual commuter to the person who rides around the world more than once, the Disc Trucker is more than capable. It's a tool designed from the ground up to take you and a bunch of stuff just about anywhere you'd like to go. It is a tool to help you get lost and find yourself.

Surly Troll
$1,699.00
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it’s not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent’s basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that’s up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Surly's Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. The Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible.

All-City Space Horse Frameset
$650.00
Even if you own a different bike for everything, it's still necessary to have one that can do it all. That bike is the Space Horse. It's become a cult favorite because of its classic styling and ability to handle just about any task or terrain.

It includes a Shutter Precision dynamo hub, a Busch & Mueller Luxos U front light that charges your phone or external battery, and a Busch & Mueller tail light (your choice depending on mounting position).

All-City Space Horse Frameset
$599.00
The Space Horse frameset is the most versatile model in the All-City line. It was designed to accommodate front and rear racks and fenders. It can be built geared or single and has clearance for large 42c tires. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur geos with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s lower than a road bike. This gives the bike agile handling and increased stability when loaded. The lower BB also helps you descend gravel roads like a champ. Its load capacity is 30lbs in the rear and 20lbs in the front. These numbers allowed All-City to choose tubing that is stiff enough to handle a multi-week excursion, yet still rides beautifully and comfortably for unloaded road and gravel adventures. One of the coolest aspects of the Space Horse project was All-City's improvement upon existing semi-horizontal dropouts (the traditional dropout for a bike of this style). The small tab on the front of the dropout in combination with the adjustment screw means that the wheel is fixed in place like a vertical dropout system. You’ll never have to wonder where to get the best shifting. Simply place the wheel fully forward in the dropout and you're done. Its 612 Select frame features the AC custom head badge, brazed-on signature seat collar, signature semi-horizontal dropouts, and custom bottom bracket. There are double eyelets on the dropout, mid-blade mounts on the fork and reinforcements on the bottle bosses. They've also included a pump peg and internal top tube cable routing. Finish it off with an E.D. coating for rust prevention and All-City's beautiful wet paint.
Salsa Fargo GX 2x10
$1,699.00
If adventure is a state of mind, the Salsa Fargo is your dreamy, two-wheeled source of inspiration. With a blend of touring comfort and off-road capability, Fargo lives outside the lines of categorization and urges you to take the scenic route. On this Fargo GX 2x10, you get 29x2.2-inch tires on tubeless-ready WTB i23 rims, along with the ability to change to either 29+ or 27.5+ as you desire. The SRAM 2x10 drivetrain provides ample gearing for loaded backcountry trips, while SRAM's Apex mechanical disc brakes provide excellent control, especially when you're in the flared drops of the Salsa Woodchipper 2 handlebar. A strong and buzz-free chromoly frame takes all types of surfaces in stride, and the burly Firestarter steel fork is strong and stable. Upholding the Fargo's touring cred is an abundance of mounting points, so you can pack as you please. Three-Pack mounts grace each fork leg, attachment points can be found for front and rear racks and fenders, and three sets of cage mounts are available on the front triangle. Adventure awaits, and the Fargo fulfills your creative cycling endeavors.
Surly Troll Frameset
$650.00
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it’s not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent’s basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that’s up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Surly's Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and comes with the always-comfy Jones Loop bar. The dropouts still allow you to run disc brakes, fenders, a Rohloff hub, and racks simultaneously. It also comes with more braze-ons than you thought possible – there are four triple bottle mounts on the fork alone (don’t get excited, you can only run one Anything Cage per fork leg), as well as two more triple bottle mounts on the down tube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible.
Soma Wolverine 700c/650b V2 Frame
$494.00 - $646.00
Joe Bike has built up more Wolverines than any bike shop in the world, so throw us your ideas; we've probably already done it. There are now three fork options for the Wolverine, so we're now selling the frame separately from the fork. See Related Items. The original inspiration for the Wolverine was "monster cross", but it is seriously so much more. Its geometry is stable enough for off road touring, but sporty enough for all-around adventure. With its Tange/IRD Sliding Dropouts, you can turn it into a single-speed CX bike. With a split seatstay, it is compatible with the Gates Carbon Belt Drive. - Clearance for 700x45c tires w/fenders (applies to rear only--fork clearance depends on Wolverine fork and ranges from about 44mm max tire width for the carbon fork, to 44-45mm for the thru-axle steel fork, and about 51mm for the quick-release steel fork). -700c or 650b compatible - Rear hub spacing: 135mm - Gates Carbon belt-drive compatible - Rohloff compatible, and now Rohloff/Gates approved! The Wolverine can be built up any way you like, such as with a belt and internal gearing or a conventional drivetrain. Skinny tires, 650b,.singlespeed, internally geared, or conventional derailleur and chain. Drop bars or flat. This is the updated V 2 frame, which features a seatstay splitter (to get the belt in the frame), whereas in the original frame the split was at the dropout. The V2 offers Rohloff+Gates compatibility, whereas the older frame allowed either/or but not both. We're offering our own Wolverine complete builds optimized for city, gravel, or touring. We call them the Daily Grinder, the Gravelo, and the Weltgrinder Rohloff, respectively. Note that this frame will need to be prepped (faced, chased, T-9 sprayed, etc.). We charge $70 to prep frames bought from us (and $105 for frames not bought from us).

What is the recommended Carbon Drive Setup for the Soma Wolverine
For the Alfine 8 spd hub, we recommend 46t front, 24t rear, and 115 length belt, with the dropout set at 440mm from the center of the BB axle. We recommend the new Center-Track system. Please note: Shimano Alfine Di2 does not fit on the Wolverine due to the Di2's Belt line is not compatible with the Soma Wolverine.

For the Rohloff hubs (compatible with this Split-seatstay design): For a gravel Grinder setup we love setting it up with a 55t in Front x 19t in back with a 115 Belt; 440.19 chainstay setting is a great starting point. For touring or adventure /trail use, use a smaller front ring.

For Single Speed setups: 46t in front x 26t in back x 115 belt and set the chainstay to 435.19mm

We strongly recommend you use the Gates Drive Calculator to figure out your gearing - it is a real help. We recommend starting with 430mm as a chainstay length. This will help you get a useful belt length when you plug in your preferred f

Surly Bridge Club
$1,200.00
All sizes will be in stock by about June 21. If the 2.4" tires seem like overkill, we'd suggest swapping them out for WTB Byway 650b x 47 mm, which we can do at no charge if it's at the time you pick up your Bridge Club. Tubeless setup is $28 per wheel. When your bike touring route takes you over the river and through the woods with a quick jaunt through town for supplies, you can't beat the versatility and smooth riding characteristics of Surly's new Bridge Club. First off, it's a Surly so you know the 'Natch chromoly steel frame and fork are built to handle your entire kit and caboodle, and thanks to the typical overabundance of rack and cage provisions you can mount your gear via traditional racks and panniers, go full bikepacking-style, or mix-up your favorite combo of the two. The Bridge Club rolls on plump 27.5 x 2.4-inch WTB Riddler tires for a blend of low rolling resistance on smooth pavement and confident handling on forest trails. You can also run up to a 2.8-inch wide tire for more flotation, or swap-in a 700c wheel and tire combo if your route includes a lot of on-road riding. A dependable 2x10 drivetrain ensures you'll never run out of gears as you make the push up long climbs, and mechanical disc brakes offer worry-free performance to keep you safe no matter what the weather brings. And, thanks to fully housed cabling and front and rear fender mounts, you can splash through soggy days with a smile. A comfortable Salsa Bend flat bar and WTB Volt saddle complete this relaxed all-terrain tourer.
