Surly Bikes View Brand Info
Serious steel for people who don't take themselves so seriously. Their bike frames and parts are durable, versatile, and outlast the next model year. Founded in 1998 and located just south of MPLS.
Surly bikes stand for a no-nonsense approach to shaping metal. Surly is the driving force behind the “steel is real” movement, making everything on two wheels tough-as-steel and producing extremely durable bikes. As "hard and tough" as Surly sounds, they still give a lot of thought to producing a comfortable, responsive ride at the right price. Every Surly frame and fork is 100% 4130 CroMoly steel—never titanium, carbon fiber, or aluminum. As the brand name implies, you won't find any sissy colors with these bikes. With Surly, you'll see the same shades as those that get deposited on your tires—like brown, green, or black. Everything about these bikes is hardcore.
If you're into building your own bikes, Surly actually sells more frames than completed bikes.
