    2016 Surly Bike Colors

    While the Troll is looking good in Steve's Pants blue (so much nicer than the purple IMHO), does anyone know about the Disk Trucker?

    Going on past color changes it looks like the LHT will be Cakipants and Blacktacular into 2016, while the DT will get a new color fairly soon. Does anyone have any idea as to what it will be?

    How about the colors of other bikes in 2016?

    Interested in that as well. I am thinking of getting a DT, but hate the burgundy.

    I hated it too, but ended up buying one. I think it looks better in person. Here is mine: Disc Trucker Details - Small - Album on Imgur

    That looks nice. Actually, my wife has one in that color that I bought her over a year ago. But I am taking it all apart to have it repainted soon. Just personal preference.

    I may have posted too soon, as it appears that there's a QBP event in 2 weeks or so for dealers to get their first look at the 2016 bikes and products from QBP brands. Hopefully bike rumor or some other site posts some pics of the new colors then.

    There are a few reports in the web about QBPs Saddle Drive 2015 now - but only about a few new bikes from Salsa. No information about Surly :-(

    On the Surly website I can see as the only difference that the SSP Karate Monkey is "Mint green" now. Thats it :-(

    Could the ECR get a new color for 2016?

    Yes, it could. It could also not. But they are running low on the stock of the current ones, there is a good chance we'll see either a new color or a new spec or both.

    Thoughts on the Glitter Dreams Straggler going away for 2016? I'm close to pulling the trigger, and don't want to miss it!

    If you tell your LBS to keep an eye on your size, they can probably give you plenty of warning if the number in stock starts to drop.

    Update:

    I emailed a few local-ish shops, and it is sold out in my size. Assuming that means from Surly.

    It's blue. I am already thinking about silver fenders, a brown leather saddle and brown bags and handlebar tape to match the saddle. That and the tens of thousands of kilometers I'm going to ride. I can't wait.

    That is, unless I don't get distracted by a Troll, but I am pretty keen on the DT right now.

    The new DT color looks great. So does the new Straggler color.

    How about the KM? I love black, but could be persuaded by a new color. Any insight on that?

    I guess I was thinking about the Ops version- definitely not a fan of the mint.
