Cross-Check is a tough-as-nails, super-versatile road bike that performs astonishingly well on any surface. There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but Cross-Check comes pretty damn close. It's a dyed-in-the-wool commuter and utility rig. It was a gravel crusher long before "gravel bikes" existed. Some people have even raced cyclocross on it. Though, we don't necessarily condone that behavior. Cross-Check was the first complete bike we ever offered. Since then, people have modified them hundreds of different ways to suit their riding styles and preferences. There’s a reason that nearly every person who has ever worked for Surly has owned one. - Semi-horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Gnot-Rite dropout spacing allows installation of 130 or 135mm hubs - Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders - Clearance for 700 x 42mm tires with or without fenders
There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check comes mighty close. It's a cyclocross bike by design, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it has only one purpose. This jack-of-all-trades will do just as well getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. At home on the road, on trails, and on gravel, the Cross-Check'll fit pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed, or a fixed-gear. The Cross-Check’s frame is engineered to supply a comfortable but lively ride. The tubing is CroMoly steel, high quality, custom-drawn, and built to our specifications. It's designed to work with components of popular sizes, meaning you can find both new and old parts to hang on this frame. It will accommodate a wide range of crank types and chainring sizes. It's got accommodations for racks and fenders (front and rear) and, because of its ample tire clearance, you can outfit it to suit where and how you will use it. There's a reason the Cross-Check has remained popular after all these years. The frame is comfy, tough as nails, and super versatile. Surly continues to hear from people for whom the Cross-Check has long been their go-to bike simply because it performs so astonishingly well on any surface.

We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real stuff was back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.

So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that we added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked us to make a disc version of our highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though. The most obvious difference of course is that the Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check’s braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The Straggler’s geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike.

Surly's Travelers Check is all about versatility. It can be built up as a singlespeed or a geared bike on 700c wheels, has room for fenders and fat tires and has bosses for racks. And that's not even the best part! The entire bike breaks down to fit in a standard, airline-approved suitcase thanks to the S&S couplers! The 4130 chromoly tubing provides a smooth and stable ride and the comfy, stable geometry takes everything you can give it on the road or off the beaten path.

Take on the cyclocross scene and so much more with Ritchey’s venerable Swiss Cross Disc. With the same details that dominated the 'cross circuit and spurred envious glances at every start line, this timeless frameset is sure to supplant its progenitor in the annals of history. The classic details so coveted by pros and amateurs alike are all present: custom triple-butted steel, Ritchey dropouts, and the spot-on geometry that dials the ride to the perfect shade of refined stability and speed. To maximize those fine details, a lightweight head tube features Ritchey's integrated headset to shave weight and improve the steering response of the matching WCS carbon fork. With lots of room for shouldering and huge tire clearance, it's ready for the sloppiest race or ride. Yet it also has two bottle cage mounts in case you want to ride this piece of history every day. And, all-weather capable disc brakes provide sure-fire control and stopping power no matter what the conditions.
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. The Swiss Cross Disc blends this Cyclocross racing heritage with up-to-date geometry and tubing. And as always, the sweet, perfectly balanced ride that Ritchey is known for. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross Disc is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Handmade to Tom Ritchey's exacting standards - Updated modern sloping top tube Cyclocross geometry - Heat treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II CrMo steel tubing throughout - Forged and machined head tube with integrated cups for use with drop-in headsets – lighter and stronger than a standard head tube - Straight carbon steer tube with optimized layup for stiffness under braking forces without excessive harshness - Ritchey WCS Carbon disc cross fork, painted to match - Full-length housing stops for use with cable or hydraulic brakes - Front: 140/160mm rotor compatible; Rear: 160mm rotor compatibility - Post mount - Ritchey socket dropout - 135mm rear spacing - Room for tires up to 38c tires - Ritchey WCS headset included - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Weight: 1960g / 4.32 lbs (55cm, frame only)
Every champ has got to face a challenger at some point, and with that in mind, we’re not about to just let someone steal the cyclocross throne from the Macho King. Back for a title match wrapped in a new yellow and black splatter colorway, the Macho King is flush with special touches destined to shine both on the course and atop the podium. Designed to provide speed and agility between the tape, it’s built from A.C.E tubing, All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing. While excellent off-the-shelf tube offerings have their time and place, using A.C.E. here allows our engineers to go completely custom with the butting profiles and wall diameters—helping them produce a lighter, stronger, stiffer, and faster course crusher, unlike anything else out there. Boasting contemporary race geometry, English-threaded bottom bracket shell, shortened chainstay, replaceable derailleur hanger, and substantial mud clearance, the Macho King now features a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires. It retains all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect, such as custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. This generation of the Macho King is the choice for steel lovers with a thirst for competition, so get out there, break some hearts, and separate the contenders from the pretenders. - A.C.E steel tubing: All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, extruded steel tubing, custom designed to be lighter and stronger for riding and racing - Contemporary race geometry, raised bottom bracket, shortened chainstay, and increased mud clearance - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
A singlespeed cyclocross sibling to the Macho King A.C.E., the Nature Boy A.C.E. comes primed for racing, covering quick up-and-downs, and cutting through the gnarliest of courses. Now crafted from A.C.E tubing — All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing — the Nature Boy’s expertly engineered butting profiles and wall diameters provide advantages that even the most excellent off-the-shelf tubing just can’t match. Stronger, lighter, quicker, and stiffer than ever, it’s simply unlike any other singlespeed in the world. Featuring modern race geometry and an ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over obstacles, we’ve increased the Nature Boy’s mud clearance to eliminate unnecessary pit stops on the course.

With 4130 Cro-Moly at it’s heart the WTF you can build it up with adventure or compact drop bars or go with a riser bar with our Urban Gravel build. Oh, lets not forget wheel and tire size. 700 x 42 or 650 x 47 or maybe even 29 x 2.1? No problem. Really, it's open to suggestions. After all, it handles gravel roads, paved roads, single track, mountain trails, commuting, loaded touring, winter training, monster cross — pretty much anything you might want to do on a bike, it's perfectly qualified for.
Niner's people are big fans of the road less traveled. Making independent choices is how they were founded and it's how they approach the future. It is with this philosophy that they created the RLT 9. Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel grinder? The answer is yes. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, the RLT 9 is meant for you. The RLT 9 Aluminum is constructed of hydroformed alloy, resulting in a frame that is light, efficient, and beautiful. This is paired with a custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork with rack mid mounts that seriously up its cargo carrying capacity. The frame features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker headtube angle. This creates the ideal geometry for a stable ride on the rockiest of roads, while still capable of winning a proper cross race. The RLT 9 utilizes modern standards—thru axles, flat-mount disc brakes, and a tapered headtube—that yield improved handling, speed control, and wheel stiffness. It's got internal shifter routings ports that are di2 ready, offers single-speed compatibility with a Biocentric bottom bracket, and has plenty of mounting points for fenders and a rear rack. With room for up to 1.75-inch tires, there are few adventures the RLT 9 isn't ready for.
Niner designed the RLT 9 RDO to encourage diversion. Want to go hard and fast? How about long and adventurous? Please do. Need a change of pace, a break from the routine? Go ahead, give it a chance. It’s hard to know where to start with this versatile beauty. The sleek, eye-catching design? The thoughtful benefits of NMF internal cable guide routing? The flat mount disk brakes for precise brake adjustments? Niner knows those things are important, but when it all comes down to it, none of those features matters if the ride quality isn’t great. So, when Niner set about designing the RLT 9 RDO they first talked to riders. The response was that gravel riders wanted a bike that could go the distance but perform when pushed. They wanted a bike that was stiff yet compliant. A bike that transferred power instantly but absorbed rough terrain. And, a bike that wouldn’t weigh them down up climbs. The RLT does all of those things and more. It's constructed using Niner’s RDO carbon compaction method for a lightweight frame that delivers comfort and dependability. The thin seat stays and top tube deliver all-day comfort while the massive down tube and chainstays keep power transfer in check. The RLT’s tried and true geometry is perfectly matched for competitive all-condition riding, multi-day adventures, and everything in between. Each fork leg features mid-blade mounting bolts that provide greater versatility for tacking on extra gear for longer adventures. And, full fender mounts improve the bike's all-season pedigree. If you can think it on two wheels, the multi-tool that is the RLT might just be the bike for you. From dirt trails to gravel to asphalt, this bike takes it all in stride and you along with it. The RLT 9 RDO—redefining what gravel can be.
While other frame materials fall in and out of favor, steel stands the test of time. Finely constructed steel frames, crafted and welded by the best builders, have continued to be the benchmark other materials measure themselves against. The RLT 9 is built with supple, trustworthy Reynolds 853 steel, producing a flawless synthesis of form and function in a frame that makes every ride open for adventure. When designing the RLT 9, Niner considered each detail with convenience and compatibility in mind. The frame utilizes thru-axle technology and flat-mount disc brakes for superior handling and speed control. It'll take a single, double, or triple chainring to conquer any and all terrain, and the PF30 bottom bracket allows the use of Niner's Biocentric bottom bracket for single-speed setups. There are 3 water bottle mounts on every size, as well as mounts for fenders and a rear rack. The bike features a buttery-smooth custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork, with mid-blade mounts for optional accessories. The Niner RLT9 is where performance, durability, and ride quality meet. From mounting panniers and racks for camping to traveling the gravel road that curves out of sight, the RLT 9 is more than capable for the open road.
Mud, sand, snow, rocks, pain, grit, and glory. That’s cyclocross, and there’s no other type of racing like it on Earth. It’s a full-gas effort that demands seared lungs, aching legs, and absolute focus from the rider, as well as maximum power transfer, precise steering, and an impeccably tuned ride quality from the bike. The FX is a multi-time winner of the rainbow jersey at the Cyclocross World Championships and, well, really, what else do you need to know? The FX is a purebred race machine, created specifically for the rigors of the cyclocross racecourse. Its no-frills, purpose-built design was developed for one thing: speed. Incredibly lightweight, stiff in all the right places, and unbelievably agile, the FX will elevate every racer’s performance. And that’s not an unsubstantiated claim by any means — the FX is a two-time winner of the cyclocross world championship in the ultra-competitive Elite Men’s division. So if it delivered the very best racer in the world to back-to-back rainbow jerseys, just think what it can do for you. The top step of the podium awaits. Go and take it. Whether you’re racing for a rainbow jersey or just aiming to beat your buddies at the weekend slugfest, you need a bike that will elevate the results of all of the blood, sweat, and tears you put into training. The FX is that bike, and once you take it into the trenches with you, no other bike will compare.
WELCOME TO THE ERA OF SPEED IN GRAVEL. A new breed of rider is emerging—one who loves the freedom and exploration that gravel culture was founded upon but who has a hunger to ride wild, to go full bore, and to explore not just geography but personal limits. This frontier requires a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to roam the trails, but to slay them. For these athletes, we created a machine engineered for pure, unapologetic speed—ready to take down finish lines, KOM leaderboards, PR’s, and FKT’s. A single bike that first generates maximum speed, then controls that speed across the variable conditions gravel athletes must conquer. A machine built without limits, for the riders willing to test them. ROAD RACING INSPIRED. GRAVEL RACING REFINED. It’s time to change the paradigm of gravel bike design from hauling gear slowly to empowering athletes quickly. Leveraging vast knowledge from road racing, the Aspero frame is designed with world tour stiffness for greater pedal power transfer, using less and lighter material to aid climbing and accelerating, while maximizing speeds with aerodynamic shapes critical to efficiency at speed. The Aspero lets you choose the tire that best suits the terrain so you're always in control, with clearance for 700x42c or 650Bx49 combinations. Since different outside rolling diameters of various wheel and tire combinations affect the bike handling, the fork includes a "Trail Mixer" design that adjusts trail to lessen the impact on handling when swapping between most common tire sizes.
When an increasing number of riders break free from the constraints of paved roads and seek the liberty that mixed surface riding provides, we at Basso answer their call with a solution that remains faithful to our tradition and values for the road while optimizing for a new, varied terrain. While others do gravel, we do Palta…the Basso solution for those wishing to take on adventures without taking route conditions into consideration. The Palta, which in local dialect means mud or dirt, has gained an international following and universal respect thanks to its “specific versatility”. If freedom is the name of the game in the gravel sector then Palta is king as it excels in a variety of applications. Perfectly adaptable to road replacement, gravel racing, cross riding or the epic multiday adventure, the Palta is to the gravel world what the multi-tool is to your saddle bag…but without compromises. With over 40 years of expertise in developing efficient geometries Basso developed an innovative solution that combines both comfort and performance and ensure fantastic handling in all situations. The specially developed Palta fork stands out and is fundamental to allowing for both great versatility amongst varied terrain in addition to a geometry that provides comfort and efficiency while allowing for near road-like positioning if need be. New terrain, same philosophy. Beautifully functional, functionally beautiful.
