Product Details

2011 Surly Pacer

Surly's Pacer lets the ride do the talking. Its sensible design handles fast group rides and solo cruises into the countryside equally well. The compliant ride and smart handling are tributes to Surly's masterful fabrication of the Pacer's 4130 chromoly tubing. To complement the classic frame, a smart Shimano drivetrain handles your shifting duties, while tires from Continental grip and FSA cranks propel. Plus, you'll wax nostalgic every time you gaze at the sweet lugged chromoly fork. And, with fender mounts and clearance for 32c tires, you'll be taking the scenic route home more often!

      I have been a rider for a number of years and did the MS150 this year on an old Crossroads bike. I decided I needed something better and after looking long and hard ended up on the Pacer. This bike is not a racer but a great cruising bike for rides on the Greenway, around the lakes and the city and out on longer day rides. I highly recommend this bike. I have no complaints after a few hundred miles.

      Comments:

      I've only had this bike a few weeks, but I've been blown away by how effortless it is to ride. I rode several more aggressive bikes - both steel (Masi, Bianchi) and Aluminum (Trek, Specialized) in search of the right ride, and found that all of the other bikes I tried (some with significantly higher end components) had their own personality. The Pacer feels like there's nothing between me and where I want to go - it's compliant and neutral. It's not a light weight, and I don't know if it'd be my bike of choice if I was planning on anything competitive, but it's just perfect for a general all around bike. The Tiagra was a bit of a turn-off to start with, and I can't speak to durability yet, but it turns out to be every bit as smooth shifting and confident as the 105-equipped bikes I tested out. A little more than a decade ago I rode an Ultegra/Dura Ace rig, and this is clearly a far better group than those were back then. I don't know if I'll be able to resist tweaking the component mix over time, but I can honestly say I am as happy with this bike as any I've ever owned.
