    any ideas about new stuff?

    Surly has been teasing us all lately. Anyone have any guesses about what the new stuff they are dangling in front of us behind a curtain are?

    Coaster brake hub

    personally I'm hoping for a 135 coaster brake hub for my original 1x1 that doesn't have a disc mount, but it's just me hoping. I can always hope, right?

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they released a disc equipped Cross Check this year. Folks have been clamoring for this for years. We'll see.

    What if Surly reads these forums? Maybe we should post up what we WANT them to make

    I hope you are right! Just this past week I have been day dreaming about what my next bike build project could be. I've concluded a winter / sloppy weather / commuting / gravel grinder bike would be fun to have. The Cross Check came to mind but so did disc brakes, which the CC is not currently sporting.

    We should know some stuff by Sunday if there are sneaky folks with cameras!

    Pugsley, Cross Check, Karate Monkey, and Big Dummy are due for new colors, following the 2 year scheme they'd been on. Pugsley is rumored to get "heavy equipment yellow". Any guesses/wishes for the rest?

    That would be awesome. Every time I see the photos of the "Coaster Brake Challenge" in CA I wish I had one.

    No one makes a serious coaster brake with spring-retracted brake shoes it seems...

    Something new with the Cross Check

    As was mentioned

    Disc brakes
    Or
    Enough clearance to run a nanoraptor
    Or
    The commuter version, equipped with fenders and rear rack
    Or
    A single speed version with a flip flop hub

    I'll settle for a black paint job for the Ogre, I'm not buying one until it happens.

    I bet the Pugs and the Moonlander will get the Ogre/Troll dropouts at some point

    Of course...the Pugs is more relevant than the Moonlander - especially with the new Rabbit Hole 50mm rims.
    Safe riding,

    I just finished riding a Krampus and I have to say I had an absolute blast. I really didn't want to give it back. It is a totally different bike than a Puglsy. It's fast and wants to be pushed hard, especially in the corners. Honestly, I could see crazies out there saying it could be their only bike. I would happily do a 2-3 hour ride on it. I only noticed the rotational weight on some steep sections but general trail blasting the weight wasn't noticed.

    Will I be getting one? Very likely so but I have a quiver of bikes and it would fit in well. It was just way too much fun.

    I've been thinking the same thing. These photos make it look fatter than the others at least. Now I'm going to have to decide between one of these, or a more practical El Mariachi... argh.

    It's definitely 3" or really close to it.

    Will it fit a Pugs?

    I wonder if that Big Fat 29er Tire will fit a Pugs. It'll be nice to know before I buy the Krampus if I don't have to. I have 3 Pugs sporting LM/Endos as well as 29er wheels but not sure if a 29x3" is too tall or not for the Pug frame. Anyone know???

    Just Zach,

    Do you know if that tire will fit a Pugs or if it's too tall?
