Based in Bloomington, Minnesota, Surly Bikes has been a manufacturer of distinctive bicycles and bicycle components since 1998. The Surly Singleator, widely recognized for starting the single speed craze among cyclists, paved the way for an ever innovative product line. The Dingle cog, cranksets with separately detachable spiders, and reversible chain tensioners, have followed in the Singleator's footsteps, each one a move toward the continuing growth and popularity of socially conscious company. To say the least, as stated in Minnesota's The Rake magazine, Surly Bikes is ”°carving out a solid niche" in the singlespeed culture, with solid components, reasonable prices, and a down to earth attitude.
Surly Bikes has played a major role in the Single Speed World Championships (SSWC) since its establishment. In 2005, a Surly frame was given as a prize to acknowledge the efforts of a volunteer. That same year, Surly was the winner of the SSWC and was given the honorable task of selecting the venue for the following year's race.
As if it were not a busy enough year for this plucky company, 2005 also saw Surly's introduction of the ”°Pugsley”±. The cutting edge Pugsley was the first mass produced mountain bike with very large volume tires, designed for deep snow and sand riding. This was a completely different take on the mountain bike, as it required different tire, tube, bottom bracket, and frame design. The reviews for the Pugsley were clearly impressive. Noted bicycle technical authority, Sheldon Brown, said ”°Pugsley is, in its way, as revolutionary as the original mountain bikes were in the early 1980's”±. Naturally, the Pugsley has since inspired similar models sold by other manufacturers.
In keeping with their singular take on fun and sport, Surly is also the producer of a mountain unicycle, called the Conundrum!
Now owned by Quality Bicycle Products (QBP), Surly now expects to sell 10, 000 frames a year. These companies continue to build on their ecofriendly ways; they use certified sustainable practices, including onsite worm composting! Employees of these progressive companies enjoy indoor bike racks, showers, changing rooms, and a competitive league which offers rewards for accumulated bike commuter miles.
From the Singleator to the Conundrum, Surly is, no doubt, embedding itself solidly into every discipline of cycling.
