What is the Surly Straggler? Itâs 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 âConstructeurâ style bicycles and we all know how real shit was back in the dayâ¦. 650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26â and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big tires easier and are more agile than their large counterparts.
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. Itâs a day tripper and a weekender. Itâs a ârough roadâ road bike. Itâs a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. Itâs a utilitarian townie. Itâs a light-duty touring bike. Itâs 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 thatâs pretty neat.
Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. Itâll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. Theyâre 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.
