Included in the long list of 29er bikes for 2012 is the Ogre, which has been released by Surly Bikes. Since the bike is a 29er machine that can do everything, all the fenders, racks, trailers, disc brakes, v-brakes, and Rohloff will work well.
Since it is based on the 26er Troll, the new Ogre looks like a creative combination of the Troll and the Karate Monkey. The cantilever brake capabilities or bent seat tube and disc are from the Karate Monkey while the rear dropouts, fender, rack, and trailer capabilities are from the Troll.
Offering superior usefulness, the 2012 Surly Ogre 29er Bike is a very versatile machine. Aside from the standard size range, the Ogre will come in a super sized 24in frameset for big riders. The frameset is available in medium green.
