Surly Troll – Ulrike

We hope you all came into the new year smootly despite all Corona circumstances. So lets start the year with this wonderful Surly Troll we made for Ulrike some time ago. Fully custom coloured frameset with metalic powdercoating for the extra bling. Built with Shimano XT 3x groupset to make sure its suitable for any place you could go.  Velo Orange 26″ Voyager rims look classy but they are state of the art and of course tubeless ready. A SON dynamo hub and B+M lights let you ride all day and night while the matching silver Sinewave Reactor charges all your devices on your tour! Classy silver Ritchey classic parts are a good match with the Velo Orange Curvy handlebar and the all over classical look. A Velo Orange Porteur rack in the front for the commuting needs and when the time comes for the next big tour the frame offers several mounts for more carriers.

Our webshop will be available as usual and it will be possible to pick up oders as well. For this time its only possible to pick up when the order is payed already to keep contacts to a minimum. If you want to return something form a pick-up made in this time you will have to send it to us or bring it back after 10th of January.
