Surly Preamble - 28" Steel Urban Bike - 2023 - Skyrim Blue


Due to the tight supply situation for individual components, bikes may sometimes be delivered with deviating equipment. However, any alternative components used will be of a corresponding quality to that of the original components.


Nothing More is Needed. Nothing Less Will Do.

The challenge was thus: Build a serious steel bike and give it only the attributes that matter most. Make it quick and comfortable on pavement, as well as confident and compliant on degraded surfaces. What the engineers put forth is Preamble, a pavement and gravel utility worker that proves you don’t need to cut corners or clip coupons to make a more affordable steel bike. You just need to keep shit simple.

Preamble can run racks and fenders and carry a couple water bottles.
Smooth and efficient on asphalt, Preamble’s double-butted main frame triangle provides a resplendent ride feel and withstands abuse from life’s inevitable potholes. Make it your own with flat bars, drop bars, a basket, or bags. On the road to steel euphoria, Preamble is the gateway drug.

Features of Surly Preamble:

  • 100% CrMo steel frame and fork
  • E.D. coated
  • Sloping top tubes on XS and Small frames
  • Flat-bar and drop-bar configurations
