Surly Bridge Club Description
As a highly versatile touring bike, the Surly Bridge Club perfectly hits the sweet spot that separates on- and off-road excursions. It accounts for both the planned and unplanned multi-surface outings which, let’s face it, every tour ends up being. We’ve all run out the clock on a dirt tour and had to add in some paved shortcuts. With the Surly Bridge Club, those shortcuts won’t feel sluggish. You might even enjoy them! Conversely, if you’re feeling a little zesty on your next road tour, you won’t be ill-prepared for reroutes through the woods. The Surly Bridge Club is designed to handle it all.
The Surly Bridge Club is ultra-focused on simplicity. We deliberately kept it leaner on braze-ons than some of our other touring bikes. It only has the barnacles that matter most to the discerning bike tourist like rack, fender, and Three-Pack mounts. This simple suite makes it fully adept to handle a full rack and pannier setup, frame bags, or a combination of the two. Run all of it together, bring all the comforts of home, and still have plenty of space for souvenirs.
The Surly Bridge Club is disc brake-specific and uses a single-position vertical rear dropout. That simplicity makes for a high-functioning touring bike that’s not as intimidating as other bikes in the category. To aid in its versatility, we designed it around 27.5 x 2.4˝ tires but can handle up to 2.8s if you’re going a little further off the beaten path. We chose the 27.5˝ platform due to the cornucopia of tire offerings in both road and mountain flavors, furthering Bridge Club’s all-around touring abilities.
