29-Inch Plus Wheel
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly is offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 29+ sizes have two water bottle mounts and one set of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
The Jaroon Plus is the new high-end steel frame dedicated to the touring and bikepacking world. As in the Jaroon model, the Jaroon Plus is welded with a special technique that hides all welding material inside, making the frame appear clean, and the seams flawless. What’s unique about the Jaroon Plus is the 29 plus wheel sizing, 29-inch diameter with a width coverage of 3-inches. It is a sort of MTB that, thanks to the 16 degree flared out racing handlebar, becomes a hybrid born for adventure. SRAM's Apex 1 x 11-speed drivetrain easily shifts through a wide range of gears, while the SRAM Rival hydraulic disc brakes gives you the power to stop in all conditions. Technologically speaking, the frame has a rear through axle, differentiated diameter head tube, 27.2mm diameter seat-post for greater comfort, disc brake system and monocoque all-carbon fork with through axle. For maximum versatility, the frame has been designed to mount mudguards and rear rack.
