Product Details

2013 Surly Pacer

Surly's Pacer prefers subtlety and comfort when riding long days. 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 Andel cranks propel. Plus, you'll wax nostalgic every time you gaze at the sweet lugged chromoly fork. With fender mounts and clearance for 32c tires, you'll be taking the scenic route home more often!

      Comments:

      I commute on this bike, 30 miles each way, also do long 70 mile road rides, and its versitile enough to throw some knobbies on and hit some gravel roads! Although it seems a little heavy, this is a ultra smooth ride that you dont even have to slow down for train tracks with. I can commute 30 miles by myself and average 19-20 mph both ways. It is very fast and very comfortable. best of both worlds!

        I'd like to tell you the best use for the bike but it's a real do all bike. I ride it on paved roads and it's so smooth it floats over the road. This is a bike you could get on and literally ride it all day. I only stop because my old legs can't go any further.

          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.
