26 Inch Mountain Bikes
Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it’s made of size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you’ve come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it’s loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The included Dummy Rail Collars provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system so you can safely carry a passenger.
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. Surly also adorned this frame with their Gnot-Boost spacing, allowing you to use any mountain bike hub whether it be 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm thru-axle, or 12 x 148mm Boost hub. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and the complete bike comes with the always-comfy Surly Moloko 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 downtube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible. Man has known for eons the call of the indifferent forest. The inexorable march of time, and dumb things like cell phones, have dulled our senses and made us afraid. Reclaim your animalistic tendencies atop Man's greatest invention.
The Surly Lowside is the bike that gets you across town for a quick rip on singletrack, then over to the bar for a night out. It’s the bike you turn to when you’re not entirely sure what the night has in store. It’s the bike to grab when you want to have just as much fun riding to the trail as you do on the trail, itself. Singlespeeding is an integral part of Surly’s DNA, and the Lowside continues the tradition, by taking a simpler approach to trail riding. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1 1/8" threadless chromoly fork - Singlespeed "specific" (derailleur hanger: yes; Trip Guides: no) - Dropper post routing - Gnot-Boost rear spacing - Front and rear thru-axles - 26 x 3" or 27.5 x 2.8" tire clearance
Looking to dip a toe into the off-road realm, but not ready to dive with an all-in mountain bike? The GT Laguna is a great way to confidently wander farther from the paved path. The aluminum frame features a low top tube for easy on and off, an 80mm suspension fork to soak up rocks and roots, and 21 hill-climbing gears to make easy pedaling out of steep gravel roads and trails. Its linear pull brakes are powerful and keep the weight low, while the 26-inch all-terrain GT tires provide traction and stability across a variety of surfaces. Once you go off-pavement, there's no telling where you'll decide to ride.
Like a race-ready monster truck on two wheels, the Wendigo 26 crushes everything in its path. The lightweight carbon frameset features a slack head angle and a low bottom bracket for stability over rough terrain. 100mm-wide DT Swiss wheels support ultra-fat Schwalbe 4.8-inch-wide tires, ensuring traction and flotation over deep snow and loose dirt. An 11-speed SRAM X01 drivetrain ensures a wide gear-range, and SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes keep you in control regardless of where you're riding.
GT's Palomar Ladies gives new and smaller riders a high-confidence ride in an easy-to-handle size. Value comes standard, with replaceable derailleur hangers and a lifetime warranty on the frame. It rocks a 21-speed drivetrain for effortless hills, linear pull brakes for predictable speed control, and an 80mm suspension fork to handle the rough stuff. The 26-inch wheeled Palomar is a great introduction to the world of mountain biking.
