Surly’s Long Haul Trucker has a devoted following, known for its dependability, riding comfort, and ability to haul a bunch of stuff. Its low bottom bracket and long chainstays provide stability. There’s ample tire clearance for wider tires and room for fenders. The CroMoly steel tubing is thicker-walled and larger-diameter than standard frames, which is easily repaired if you crack the frame on a trek through outer Mongolia.
The LHT has all the braze-ons, from rack mounts to water bottle cage bosses to spare spoke holders. It’s available as a frameset and as a complete bike, with 26˝ wheels in 42–62cm sizes, and with 700c wheels in 56–64cm.
Vic just put together this Surly for a client who chose the 26″ wheelset. The decision is a wise one for a cross country rider. You can find a replacement 26″ tire in any Walmart in America. Ever try finding a replacement 700c tire in the booneys?
Let Vic order a dependable and affordable Surly for you.
