Surly bikes are generally a bit different from the norm, usually with a function over form approach to their designs. For example, if you need a bike that can carry a television, another bike, or the same number of children as a car, Surly make a bike for that. If you want to set off pedalling and not stop for a week, there's more than one Surly bike that will allow you to go self-sustained cycling. If you want a bike that will be almost zero maintenance to get you to work and back for many years, Surly make a bike for that too. These bikes not only excel at the purpose they're intended for, but they can also be used for so much more, making them incredibly versatile machines. The Surly touring bike range is packed with features like pannier rack mounts, loads of bottle cage bosses, and even spare spokes, to provide a platform that will keep you pedalling no matter how far you want to go.
