If you ever looked at miles of mostly unrideable landscape and thought "Huh, I wish I could ride over that" then Surly's Moonlander might be your perfect bike. The chromoly frame was built around humongous 4.7 inch tires on Surly Clown Shoe rims. These beautifully large assets are meant to roll over any obstacle. The flotation and traction gained by using large volume, low-pressure tires can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain: ice, snow, sand, mud, wet rocks and roots. Speaking of ice and snow, the drivetrain is customized too with Mircoshift thumb shifters so you can change gears in mittens and a Mr. Whirly Offset Double crank provides low gearing options. Plus, rain or shine, dry or mudbog, Avid's BB7 mechanical-disc brakes slow you down in any conditions.
