Surly’s Troll offers the ability to accommodate a wide array of drivetrains, brakes, and cargo-hauling accessories. Built of 4130 CroMoly steel, the Troll is designed to be a platform for exploration, commuting, trailer-pulling, on-road and off-road touring, and just riding along. The frame features a gusseted sloping toptube, Surly Trip Guides for running full shift and brake housing, mounts for linear-pull and disc brakes, and ample room between the stays for high-volume rubber…up to about 2.7".
The Troll comes with a suspension-corrected (100mm) fork. It features mid-blade eyelets and low-blade barrel bosses for mounting front racks. Surly provide canti pivots and disc brake mounts, so you can choose a system that best suits your stopping needs. And it’s specifically designed to allow the use of a fender, disc brake, and front rack at the same time.
Like the fork, the rear end allows all-at-once rack, fender and disc compatibility. Spaced for 135mm hubs, the ‘dropouts’ are horizontals with a derailleur hanger, slotted disc brake mounts, M10 x 1mm threaded holes for mounting Surly Bill & Ted trailer-connecting hardware (or B.O.B. Nutz), and a dedicated anchoring point for a Rohloff OEM2 axle plate. Surly designed a ton of versatility into these frameset because they want you to build up a Troll the way it will best serve you.
Ride it to the office during the day, rip some local single-track after work, use it to tote crates of freakishly-large tubers next weekend, and tour that stretch of off-the-beaten-path double-track next month. With Troll you can do that.
Note: rear disc brake is limited to 165mm maximum rotor diameter and requires the use of included Surly caliper adapter.
Please note that the frame should be treated inside with corrosion protection before assembly.
