Surly Ogre…



Surly Ogre Frame

I originally wanted the brown/green frame but unfortunately there was a loooong wait to get one, but I don’t mind the Black frame it’s still pretty sexy.




Surly Ogre, Large – Supplied by Commuter Cycles who did a fantastic job prepping the frame for assembly. Great service and advice.
