Midnight Special shines on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement and the occasional long stretch of gravel. Its 650b road plus tyres eat up road chatter and absorb all the bumps in the road like the champion it was designed to be.
When it comes to road bikes, we just want to toss a few bananas into our pockets and see where the road takes us. We seek out varied surfaces on our rides and frequently go from pavement to gravel to shittier pavement. Midnight Special allows us to accomplish all of that quite comfortably.
Whats not to love.. 4130 steel tubing, 650B Halo wheel set and a truly dialled Sram Apex groupset for everything road and gravel. Built for the riders that always find them self tempted by beaten tracks and rough terrain, or commuters that refuse to take the bus.. even in the harshest of weathers.
Sold on the do-it-all nature of gravel bikes but don’t want to loose the snappy acceleration of your road bike? The Surly Midnight Special could be the one. Smaller diameter 650b wheels allow high-volume cushy tyres to fit into conventional road geometry. More than capable on the likes of New Forest gravel and the unmaintained bike paths of the world, but designed for gunning it, full throttle, pedal to the metal, all day in sublime comfort.
