Product Details

2015 Surly Pacer

Surly's Pacer is an all-day-adventurer, foul-weather-commuter, and back-roads-explorer with classically inspired style and an unmatched ride. The handling and comfort are courtesy of Surly's dedication to 4130 chromoly tubing, which is paired with a lugged fork that enhances steel's inherent ability to damp road buzz. No-nonsense wheels feature sturdy Alex rims laced to 105 hubs for a pair of hoops that can tackle inner-city commutes and fast-paced club rides. 10-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain components provide ample legs to take you over hill and dale, and the 28mm Schwalbe tires offer smooth-rolling traction. Final touches like clearance for 32mm tires, as well as rack and fender eyelets, keep the bike super versatile and ready for nearly anything.

    Pacer 2014... Great value for money

      • Best On The Pavement

      Comments:

      I use Pacer 2014 for daily 40 km morning cycling and weekend century rides. Since using this bike, I love the feel of it so much that I cannot touch any of my other bikes. Total 105 group set makes 2014 models unique. Everything from shifters to the chain is 105. The frame geometry fits me perfectly and the steel takes the pavement with absolute grace. It is a great bike for everyday pavement rides. Surly Pacer is "Owners' Pride" I wonder why Pacer 2014 could not have had an internal routing of the cables. That's just one thing that would further improve this bike.

        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.
