Surly Troll

The new love of my life. Lusted after a Surly 1x1 for years, but the new Troll is a way better watch for me.
Picked her up yesterday afternoon. Twas a late night after that.


  1. Thanks for posting the pic! I'm putting together a Troll build very similar to yours. Would you mind giving details of your build? I'm especially interested in your drive train choices and your fender and tire width. I want to use a Tubus Cosmo rack, but I'm not sure if it will fit with my Big Apple 2.35" tires and SKS 65mm fenders. Thanks, Scott

  2. I'll try to add more info for you. Let me know if you need anything more

  3. Nice setup. I'm curious, did you get the 16" or 18" frame?


  4. G'day Megan
    Graham at Ridgways Cycles put me onto your blog. I'm going to follow it.

    I did a ride on Route 66 in 2012 on a Surly Troll I bought it in Chicago. If you want a read, the blog I wrote about the trip can be reached here

    The Troll is only the second new bike I've ever owned (the first was a Malvern Star tourer given to me in 1979) I still own both. I'm contemplating doing another long bike trip, but not sure when or where.

    Happy trails

  5. Hi Ron,
    Thanks for the link. I've since read about your trip. Amazing. Love the old photos you have. You put a lot of work into your trip journal.
    Keep on cycling
