650b what? In the old days when randonneuring bikes ruled on long rides over mixed surfaces, the 650b tire size was perfectly suited for moving fast under control. Surly took this concept and applied it to the Straggler, a disc brake-equipped any-road type of bike bred from their revered Cross Check. The slightly smaller wheels accommodate smaller frame sizes and plump tire widths, creating options where few exist in this realm of bike riding. Disc brakes highlight the Straggler 650b story, sporting Hayes CX Experts with 160mm rotors front and rear. The athletic character continues with a SRAM Apex 2x10 drivetrain, giving you a useful gear range for any type of riding you can dream up, and continues with 32-hole alloy Alex Adventurer 2 rims wrapped in Surly's own super-versatile 650b x 41 Knard rubber. A Salsa Cowbell handlebar is great for riding on mixed terrain, too, giving you a bit more control when it's loose while retaining comfortable positioning for cranking into the wind. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.
The best part of the ride starts at the end of the pavement. The Breezer Inversion Pro is the mountain biker’s road bike. It features a seamless, double-butted, chromoly D’Fusion frame with the new Breeze-Thru axle rear dropout and Apex disc brake mount, making the Inversion a truly versatile drop-bar machine. A full-carbon fork with a tapered head tube and 12mm thru axle drop out ensures the Inversion will track true when descending on any terrain. The Inversion Pro features a Shimano 105 drivetrain, TRP HY/RD hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless-ready Alex rims and 32mm WTB Exposure tires. Clearance for up to 38mm tires, and optimized head tube lengths working in concert with the D’Fusion chromoly frame provide all-day comfort in the saddle whether you're cruising back roads with friends, taking on a cyclocross race or grinding out a gravel race. The Inversion Pro is here to break down the boundaries of what a “road” bike can be.
