We take the Surly Wednesday onto the soft and loose to test how it performs on real fat bike territory

surly wednesday
Overall Score
A playfully designed and versatile fat bike, still capable of that big expedition
Basic shifting components for the price

As one of the pioneers of the fat bike genre, Surly have kept themselves at the head of the queue when it comes to being a go-to brand for wide rubber.

The Wednesday is a very capable and versatile performer, with a frame happy to both spring around your local trails with playful geometry, or strap on your worldly goods for a round the world trip. Covered in bottle bosses, rack mounts and everything you could need for an extended trip this could be the adventure bike you have been looking for. Even the disc brakes are mechanical, making them simpler to fix if you get caught with a mechanical in the sticks somewhere.

Slotted dropouts can be adjusted to allow shorter, more responsive chainstays with 3.8 inch tyre clearance or longer to accept up to the huge 4.8 inch tyres available - again that versatility. This would likely be the last fat bike you would need to buy. Well, until next time.
