Surly Straggler - Hire


The Straggler is the Midnight Special's cyclocross-tuned cousin, the 700c wheels make an insanely versatile bike; it handles about any terrain from paved Christchurch roads to dirt tracks in Bottle Lake Forest and beyond.

The Surly Straggler shines brightest on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement (think Red Zone or the Port Hills in Christchurch) and the occasional long stretch of gravel (McLeans Island or Bottle Lake Forest).

It makes a fantastic touring bike, there are plenty of braze-ons for front and rear panniers, mounts for three bottle cages and more.

The mechanical disc brakes will guaranteed to help you stop fully loaded on the steepest hills and in grittiest conditions yet you will eat up those miles on South Island roads and gravel tracks like a road cyclist.

Or just take it for a road ride, climb up to the summit and don't stop until you're in Akaroa!

Helmets, locks, & local knowledge included.

You can also hire the Surly Straggler on Sunday, please give us a call and we can discuss pick up and drop off.
