    Is that a salsa enabler fork on the pug and moonlander?

    Surly has a ton of nice stuff coming out. I am thinking of an ogre.

    Was hoping for a new color on the BD but can't go wrong with black I guess!

    Troll drop outs?

    I think that's a 58cm Trucker with 26" wheels. Look at the drop outs though, I think those are the same ones that are on the Troll/Ogre. Smart move. At first I wasn't so excited about the Disc Trucker but now that I've seen it... the color is great.

    Wow, Surly did not disappoint this year. Not like they ever do though...

    I feel like the Ogre is the poor man's Fargo. And by that I mean just as cool and less expensive.

    They are almost the same price around here. Fargo is a sexy bike, I like Surly's for their utilitarian look but the Ogre and Troll are (like their namesakes suggest) kinda ugly bikes - but in a very endearing way. (The Troll moreso than the Ogre - big wheels definitely help!)

    I agree on the size front. Maybe a 60cm, but it's definitely a 26" wheel model, and not as huge as the 62cm. See here:

    62 cm LHT with 26" wheels | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    The dropouts have a similar shape to the Troll or Ogre, but they are definitely a vertical dropout on the new Disc Trucker. I also don't see the special hole for the trailer hitch, but it might just be tough to see in the photo. It would be a shame if they didn't include the hitch mount on a new tour frame...

    I agree. Hopefully they're there. The Disc Trucker and Bill/Ted seem like a good match.

    The wheels in my head keep spinning on this. My CC or LHT will be going to make room for a Disc Trucker with 26". For me this is a more practical bike than a Troll/Ogre as I really like drop bars and am comfortable with them on dirt. Obviously the low BB height of the Trucker can be an issue but I don't ever see myself touring on technical single track.

    60cm Trucker, 26" wheels with 2.0 Duremes and 48cm Nitto Noodle bars all make for one great commuting/touring/camping all-road machine.

    I like the way they went for fat (ish) tires for the disc trucker demo. It's the 2+" capacity that got me onto an LHT in the first place. Really makes that frame stand out from the crowd.

    I think that frame is a 26" wheeled frame? Anyways, yeah I love my LHT with 40mm Schwalbe Marathon Extremes. They fit just fine under full fenders even.

    Based on the red caps, they are most likely SRAM bar end shifters mounted with Paul Components Thumbies. You're welcome.

    Sounds plausible, especially since a stock pic of the Moonlander had a Microshift rear derailleur.

    Wow, I am loving all of these new products. Time to start convincing my wife into a Moonlander purchase but I wouldn't be mad at a black ops Pugs. Looks like I am going to start some can collecting in order to justify yet another new bike purchase.

    Looks like the Ogre will come as a complete (that is a nice surprise that was not in the blog post). Specs look respectable -- I am tempted. I wonder if the complete will be the same price as the Troll complete ($1399)?

    AAhhh!! Now I don't know what to do. Almost had my Ogre build specd out and now this. I may just get the complete and upgrade later.......
