2016 AWOL

The AWOL allows you to tackle any adventure that strikes your fancy. The rugged heat-treated and custom-butted Cr-Mo steel frame and fork—with long-lasting, fully housed cable routing—are light and responsive to provide you with predictable and confident handling, while the mechanical disc brakes keep you in control no matter the conditions. With its wide gear range and comfortable, smooth rolling Fatboy tires to tackle a terrain big and small, plus the highly functional Pizza Rack for ample stowage space, the AWOL is the ideal all-adventure machine.

AWOL - Excellent !

A bike that can develop road bike speed. Strong and at the same time flexible, impossible to stop her. Ideal for field trips and gravel by simply changing the tires for one suitable for that type of road. Indestructible, I love her! Guillermo - Buenos Aires - Argentina.

Want another. (WHY discontinue)

Solid simple bike. Great for everything. Strong, fast, durable. It exceeded my expectations for commuter bike. Still impressing me in every way. USED WITH SURLY TRAILER. I overhaul everything. Flat-bar gravel bike. Xt brakes & 180 rotors. Used More MTN than ROAD parts. Double 10 spd (occasionally use of alfine 11) Seeking another AWOL and/or SEQUOIA design (DONT WANT/LIKE 2021 BIKES. many downsides. Carbon forks, thru-axle, future-shock headtube. Weaker frameset) DIVERGE would be OK if it wasn't thru-axle (want to use alfine hub and surly trailer) (carbon fork is a down-side, snapping upon impacts) (future-shock is a DOWN. I'd rather replace frameset instead of compromised frame strength) I'd pay for special orders, limited runs...
