Explore uncharted terrain with Origin-8's Crawler. This fat bike floats over soft surfaces like sand and snow, crawls over rocks, and makes short work of difficult terrain that would chew up a regular bike. This rugged workhorse boasts NuVinci's Planetary internally geared rear hub for incredibly smooth shifting. It lets you shift effortlessly at any time, even while sitting still and has plenty of range to help you get over almost any obstacle. Beefy, Origin-8 Devist8er tires provide plenty of grip and an enormous 4-inch wide footprint, while powerful, reliable Avid BB-7 discs deliver excellent stopping power. Finished off with a slew of excellent components from Origin-8, the Crawler is an excellent introduction into fat bikes that doesn't require a fat wallet.
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly is offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 29+ sizes have two water bottle mounts and one set of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
