The New 2021 Surly Disc Trucker: My Honest Thoughts
The Trucker touring bikes by Surly are probably the most recognised touring bikes in the world. Go to any popular cycling destination, and you’ll find a handful of people riding them. Jump on Instagram, and lots of folks are using them for their cross-continental trips. There’s no doubt they’re great bikes, and today, there’s a fresh update to make the 2021 Surly Disc Trucker even better.
I’ve actually toured dozens of countries and pedalled more than 50,000km on a Surly Trucker, so I am very familiar with the bike. In fact, it was my first touring bike when I was just a wee teenager starting to explore the world!
This article will outline all of the changes, and I’ll provide my honest thoughts on the implications of this update.
