Surly Straggler 700c

Lowest Price Guarantee

SKU: BK6645

Straggler is a bikepacking-inspired road/gravel bike mostly at home on pavement but ready for trail duty when called.

Born on Gravel. Raised on Pavement

Straggler is tuned for cross-over exploration on a wide variety of terrain conditions. It’s a day-tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike, a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing, a utilitarian townie, a light-duty touring bike and an all-weather commuter. It’s a steel gravel bicycle that thrives on the road. Think of it as a “mountain biker’s road bike.” If you only have room for one bike in your life, Straggler can (and should) be your one and only.

Straggler’s capabilities go well beyond asphalt. It also lends itself well to light touring setups. We're talking frame bags, seat bags, and "credit card touring” rather than full-blown touring. Straggler also handles our 8- and 24-Pack Racks well, so you have some heavier-duty loading options.

  • Available in 650b and 700c wheel diameters
  • Accommodations for racks and fenders
  • Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability
  • Clearance for 650b x 41mm or 700c x 41mm tires with fenders!

When you buy a bike from Aventuron, not only will your bike ship for free, but you will receive a bike that is ready to ride out of the box.

We assemble and tune your bike, then repackage it to ship. When you receive your new bike it will be very easy to assemble. You will have to attach the front wheel, handlebar, seatpost and pedals. Most bikes do not include pedals, but we have an extensive pedal selection. We are a family-owned and operated business and look forward to having you as a customer.

    [1] Different tire and rim combinations will result in different clearances.
    [2] Depending on drivetrain configuration, tire clearance may be limited by the chain and not frame.
    [3] Listed chainring clearance is worst case scenario. Clearances vary widely depending on components and configurations.
