Model Year: 2015
Frame Material: CroMoly
Price: $1949.99 / $1424.99
Krampus’s frame (geometry, tubing diameter/thickness) has been designed with a long toptube and as short a rear end as we could get away with given the wheel/tire size. This, when combined with the big, wide tires, results in a mad amount of rolling inertia and grip.
Adapt and Conquer
Adaptive Hardware Options
Krampus’s hub spacing is standard 100mm front and 135mm rear, with rear-loading horizontal dropouts that accommodate a derailleur and single ring/cog drivetrains. It’s got clearance for disc rotors up to 185mm and is designed to run a high direct mount standard front derailleur. This type of derailleur will allow the most clearance at the tire. If you plan to use standard width rims and tires, you’ll be able to run a normal mountain triple crank. However, if you go with OEM 50mm Rabbit Hole rims and 3″ Knard tires then plan to use a 1x or 2x crank.
A Sinister Evolution of the 29’r
Surly’s Krampus is the evolution of the 29er. It’s not quite a fat bike, but with 3″ tires on 50mm rims (AKA 29+) this trial monster will roll over almost anything. The aggressive combination of insane traction and large wheels will get you gobbling up trails in no time.
