The Surly Grappler—formerly known as the Ghost Grappler—is a unique take on a drop-bar off-road bike that combines long-ride-friendly comfort with an unexpected playful side, not to mention loads of utility. The Grappler is also equally at home as a flat-bar bike and comes equipped with a drivetrain that makes that transition easy. Logan’s review was one of our most popular articles of 2022, and Neil’s YouTube review has racked up nearly 100,000 views!
