As Surly says, “The Lowside is the bike that gets you across town for a quick rip on singletrack, then over to the bar for a night out.”
This singlespeed picks up where the 1 x 1 left off with the addition of modernized features like internal dropper post routing, Gnot-Boost rear spacing and thru axles. However, your old parts will still fit – Gnot-Boost rear spacing is compatible with 142 x 12mm or 148 x 12mm thru-axle rear hubs as well as 135 x 10mm QR hubs (when using 10/12 Adapter Washers).
The Lowside also features a 110 x 15mm fork with a generous tire clearance of 27.5 x 2.8 inches or 26 x 3 inches. It’s spec’d with 26plus Dirt Wizards and the reminiscent-of-BMX Sunrise Bar.
Complete bikes retail for $1,200 and frames for $600. They come in sizes XS-XL.
