2014 Surly Long Haul Trucker (700c)

Your bike is ready, and it's time to hit the road! Surly's Long Haul Trucker is your endlessly capable world-tourer, grocery-getter, and weekend-camper. Chromoly has long been the favored frame material for bicycle tourists, and the Trucker's frame and fork are stable and smooth under load, guaranteeing long distance riding pleasure and performance. A complete set of front and rear rack eyelets, fender mounts, and clearance for high volume tires means you can truly ride this bike to the ends of the earth, and bring your gear along for the ride. Bar-end shifters are simple and durable, and the extra-wide range 27-speed drivetrain will get you and your bike up every hill. Sturdy, no-nonsense 700c wheels equipped with 37mm-wide Continental tires will keep you rolling strong.

    Comments:

    You can put almost any sized tire on this bike. You can add any racks you possibly want and many water bottles. I bought mine from cal coast and it was set up perfectly, plus they give you a free tune up and the staff is more than helpful. I've put at least a hundred miles on my surly, some on the road, some off and it still rides like new. Very comfortable confident ride, a little heavy but then it is steel and once it gets rolling it really goes!

      Comments:

      The LHT is great for my uses: commuting 8 miles round trip, running errands, and working out on the weekends. Occasionally I'll go longer distances with someone else. Its steel frame provides a solid experience, but I don't consider it heavy either. I wanted a bike that will last forever, and I expect this one to. I love all the places to add racks, fenders, pumps, etc. Nicely done, Surly.
