Surly Preamble Details

Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL

Colours: Skyrim Blue

Have you always yearned for a Surly but couldn't quite stretch your budget to one?

If so, the Preamble was made just for you.

Designed for road and gravel use, this steel bike has been built for simplicity. It's still nimble on the bitumen but burly enough to take on potholes and fireroads.

Surly have equipped the Preamble with everything it needs for light utility duties. You can whack on mud guards and racks, no problem. It'll also take bottle cages so you don't go thirsty.

For riders on the shorter side, the XS and S frames have a dropped top-tube for extra clearance.

And, of course, that chromoly steel frame (the main triangle is double-butted, donchaknow) will keep the ride smooth for many years.

After all, when you own a Surly, you tend to own it for decades.

  • Chromoly steel
  • 650b in XS and S frames, 700c for M, L and XL
  • Tyre clearance: XS/S - 650b x 41mm rear, 650b x 47mm fork; M-XL - 700c x 41mm rear, 700 x 44mm fork (with or without mud guards)

What You Say

It ran like a dream in the adventure race. I especially appreciated the work you did on the brakes; lots of people complained that theirs weren't working properly and mine were solid all day. There was an awesome downhill and some people had to walk their bikes due to a lack of braking...Ray Scheuboeck
