29-Inch Plus Wheel
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly is offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 29+ sizes have two water bottle mounts and one set of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
Stache 7 is a playful 29+ trail hardtail with 3-inch mid-fat tires, a ridiculously capable build, and a robust fork with 120mm of travel. This mountain bike marries fun and confidence. It's a big-wheeled fun wagon ready to go anywhere and take on any trail. It's right for you if... You embrace the weirdness of 29+ tires and appreciate the simplicity of a hardtail. You're willing to spend a little more for nicer parts because you know they're more precise and offer extra adjustability. The tech you get A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame and stout RockShox Yari RL fork with 120mm of travel, Stranglehold dropouts, a dropper post to make the steep stuff a little less sketchy, and a mixed SRAM SX and NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with a larger 50-tooth cog for easier climbing. Plus, it has 29x3" Bontrager XR4 Team Issue tires that keep you connected to the trail and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes for reliable all-weather stopping power even when the trail gets wild. The final word Stache 7 blends value and performance with big fun. It's trimmed with high-quality parts where it really counts, like in the suspension and drivetrain, so it won't destroy your wallet but it won't leave you wanting more either. Why you'll love it - Stache 7 delivers awesome 29+ performance at a no-nonsense price - Super short chainstays make this bike surprisingly agile, even with its 29+ wheels - Stache is super versatile and equally at home on multi-day bikepacking trips as it is on rough singletrack - We're not the only ones who love it: DirtRag says, "[Stache] is the most fun bike I rode this year, and fun is where it's at." - It's super easy to go tubeless with the included Tubeless Ready tires, rim strips, and valves
