The Surly Ogre bike lives for versatility, offering a platform for exploration, commuting, trailer-pulling, on-road and off-road touring or just riding along.
Sturdy 4130 chromoly steel frame offers the strength and smooth handling associated with steel with the cabaility of hauling you and your cargo
Gusseted down tube and top tube ensure stout, lasting performance, and the suspension-corrected design means you can put a suspension fork on it if you want
Frame and fork are designed to allow the use of fenders, disc brakes, and racks at the same time; removable cantilever brake bosses let you change to a rim brake setup
Fork has mid-blade eyelets and low-blade barrel bosses for mounting front racks (rack sold separately)
Rear horizontal dropouts feature dedicated holes for mounting trailer-connecting hardware or anchoring a Rohloff OEM2 axle plate, which means yet more expandable versatility
Shimano Deore 27-gear drivetrain with Truvativ cranks ensures you can spin easily whether riding fire roads or hauling heavy trailers
Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes facilitate controlled deceleration and sure stopping power in mixed conditions
Oversize wheels feature Deore disc hubs laced onto Alex 32-hole rims and dressed with WTB Exiwolf 29er tires for excellent rolling performance on just about any surface
Please note: pedals are not included

I moved to the mountains recently and needed a bike that could do just about anything depending on how I built it up or down. I can easily commute with this, or load it up with racks and do some touring, also I can just rip some local single track with it. I'm sure if you wanted it to handle a little more smoothly on rough trail you might want to put a more forgiving fork on it. Overall, the ogre is everything I wanted and REI was extremely easy to purchase from and they offer a free first service on your bike which is a nice perk. I recommend this bike with Surly you really can do no wrong - economically efficient and can be transformed for whatever use you can imagine for it.
