Will a Schlumpf work on the Surly BB?

No, you need the mounting bolts that are usually found on a DH Mountain bike.

Well. That's bad news. I thought for sure there wouldn't be an issue but figured I should ask first to make sure. What's a DH Mountain Bike?

I don't think jimblairo is correct on this one. The Surly bottom bracket shell is the same as every other shell out there for the most part. Fietsbob is the resident expert on the Schlumpf and he will correct me if I am wrong.

Check out installation here.

If you live in America, Cycle Monkey would be one place you could contact for advice.

DH mountain bike is a downhill mountain bike and I have no clue what he means by mounting bolts.

Maybe I'm wrong. Some DH (down hill) bikes have 3 mounting tabs on the right side of the BB shell. I thought it was the Schlumpf that needed the bolt pattern.
Other planetary gear products are FSA Metropolis Patterson, Hammerschmidt and Terra Trike Speed Drive.
