Surly Midnight (Very) Special

Sometimes we just like to have fun

Home / Custom Builds / Surly Midnight (Very) Special

The brief

This was simply done as a fun project for ourselves. We love Surly and wanted to create a flatbar Midnight Special that was unlike anything you could buy off the shelf.

The bike

This Midnight (Very) Special was designed to be a showpiece for what we can achieve in our custom builds, but kept to an affordable price ($2999).

The idea was to create a classic look, so we used as many polished silver components as possible, such as the Soma Shotwell stem. (They just look great, as does the paint on this beauty.)

We used a mixture of components to create a budget-friendly 1x12 drive train with a huge gear range.

Stopping duties are taken care of with a set of Shimano hydraulic brakes -- they're well-priced and super-reliable.

The wheels use Novatec sealed bearing hubs laced to Alex tubeless-ready rims, with a set of Donnelly street tyres to finish them off nicely.

We even managed to find some grips to match the frame colour. It's the little touches that make our custom builds truly special... Midnight Special!

(Come on; we're allowed to do bad jokes occasionally, right?)

What You Say

Gave my mountain bike a good sesh on the weekend -- first time since the service. For a four-year-old bike, amazingly it feels better than new! Thanks. Will more than likely get my road bike in for some lovin' in the near future too!Andrew Hawkes
