Say hello to Surly's rowdy, trail-shredding Instigator 2.0. The no-nonsense chromoly frame is made for charging hard and going big. It's super tough, yet handles nimbly and accelerates like mad. The heart of the bike is Surly's 26+ platform which has clearance for 50mm-wide rims and 2.75-inch tires, so you get endless traction and the rollover-action of a 27.5-inch wheel, coupled with the snappy, go-fast responsiveness of a 26-incher. The geometry is dialed for a 140mm travel suspension fork and features a long top tube and short rear end for more of the same fun. And this thing is versatile, the frame comes with dropouts for rolling singlespeed, or geared with a quick release or a 142x12mm through-axle with a Shimano direct-mount hanger.
