The Surly Long Haul Trucker is a proven go-to bike for touring. I have literally seen people take these completely around the world on all types of terrain. Surly has a reputation for strong durable products and the LHT is no exception. This steed was geometrically designed to haul damn near anything.
It’s common for cyclist to “build” and customize their own LHT and just purchase a frame set.
-Offered for 700c and 26″ wheels (26″ being ideal for world touring due to parts availability)
-Clearance for 700 x 45 tires without fenders or 700 x 42 with fenders.
-Offered with Canti or Disc brakes!
-Average/poor quality on stock brakes.
-Stock seat is less than ideal for this bike.
