    Hello Trollers,

    I'm building a Troll at the moment and I'm having some problems with the last parts. I need tubeless ready wheelsets for an sram 11 speed. I like them affordable, oh and I am planning on putting 2.5" tires on it.
    Anyone can help me with some suggestions?

    So, I can't believe this thread is quiet given the announcement of changes coming to the Troll.



    I've long lusted for a Troll, as it's my namesake bike and the first Durly that caught my eye when I jumped back into cycling a few years ago. After riding a Pugsley for awhile and burned many many miles on a Cross Check, I'm finally ready for a Troll.

    I picked up some 650b wheels, Crazy bars, a new Brooks to put on it, all the parts I need, and now all the old frames are gone in Medium. I actually kibd of really want the old design with the corrected fork, as it leaves me the option to SS mtb it with a squishy fork. I'm not as stoked on the updated frame. What does everyone else think?

    I, too, preferred the old design. I like the option of adding a fork, and actually ran mine that way for a long time. I have it set up rigid with drop bars now, so really would be perfect for the new frame, but ill be keeping my old one for the versatility. Part of what made it so attractive in the first place. Very Surly.

    I do like the added tire clearance of the redesign though, I swapped the Pugs for and Instigator, would have been fun to swap wheelset to the Troll in the winter for commuting. If that and the added bosses would have been the only change, then i might be ordering a new frame, but alas, ill stick with my purple.

    Yeah, I feel I may be stuck getting a used complete to get the black medium I want.

    I also thought about replacing my Pugs with the Troll as a 3" winter comnuter since my Pugs has been pushed aside as my main Mtb as I won a sweet FS mtb. BUT I planned to run the Troll as a townie/bar hopper SS. Having to switch drivetrains AND wheels twice a year may be more than I may be willing to do. I'm lazy when it comes to bike work

    I nay just have to bude my time to frind just the right frame, just irks me to do so since I've had this built in my head for years...

    There's another thread where it's being discussed. It seems to me like it's a trade-off: remove the suspension fork option and add the wider hub option. Of the two, I feel like I'm more likely to use the suspension fork, but in reality I have not added a suspension fork, nor have I found myself wanting a wider hub. So apart from that, the new Troll has a little more room in the triangle for a bag and can take a little wider tires. Both positive changes if you didn't care about the suspension correction. But neither are big enough changes for me to want to change out my frame.

    mochunk, you could always order a 1x1 frameset. Same geo as the old Troll.

    I grabbed a world troller for myself right as I closed down my bike shop.

    for me, the framebag that fits my medium krampus fits my medium pugsley, fits the medium world troller, fits my pivot les.

    Add in the fact I can run a fork or not, and I can swap the wheels from my big dummy (rohloff/schmidt) means that I could build it as a fuselage and hang it from a rafter. then when I need to go somewhere, pull the wheels of the dummy, throw it in a travel box cut in half (love the s&s/ritchey travel bikes) and away I go.

    for me, the original design is better. if you are looking for one, look to the s&s bike. very few people who have bought a travel bike regret owning one. and I can never not own one again....
