StarStarStarStarStar A long time coming but worth it!

by
Product: Surly Hurdy Gurdy -Silver: Surly Hurdy Gurdy - Silver
Ownership: two months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Seemed like this was forever rumored and promised, but took a long time to get to market. But it works perfectly in my horizontal dropouts. I had a constant problem with the drive-side of my rear wheel being pulled forward no matter how tight I made the quick release. Was contemplating selling the bike it was so frustrating. The Hurdy Gurdy eliminated all problems and I'm in love with my awesome bike once again!

Cons

None at all!

Product: Surly Hurdy Gurdy -Silver: Surly Hurdy Gurdy - Silver
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Quality material, easy to install, and holds the rear wheel securely in place. Great to be able to fine tune chain tension.

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

Works on front facing horizontal dropouts. For rear facing track dropouts get the Surly Tug Nut. Don't over tighten if you're using a freewheel.

StarStarStarStarStar Worth it!

Product: Surly Hurdy Gurdy -Silver: Surly Hurdy Gurdy - Silver
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Excellent machining--close tolerances but not too tight--easy to adjust.

Very strong materials--I am 275 pounds with my CamelBak Mule, water and tools. I have an old CroMo hard tail (Diamondback Sorrento) that is about the only thing large and strong enough for my 6'5" frame. Total riding weight is just over 300 pounds.

Before the Hurdy Gurdy, I would routinely twist the rear hub right out of the dropouts (which are a really stupid design--they face straight forward) during hard climbs. No more.

Definitely pricey, but a perfect solution. Works with many different dropout configurations, due to a generous range of motion and a reversible machined insert that shifts hole position.

Cons

Price.

Other Thoughts

Excellent instructions.
