Tht's great if you can set it up and it works for you. Won't work for me as the headtube is too short.
Not if my shops sale's are any indication. The LHT especially is a really popular bike.Tht's great if you can set it up and it works for you. Won't work for me as the headtube is too short.
I wouldnt be surprised if Surly put the LHT, Pugsley and Moonlander out to pasture. They've got quite a few models now.
I'm still thinking about picking up a closeout Pugs frame from Universal.
I don't know what's popular at my shop, but one of the owners rides one, and when I see a Surly in the wild, it's almost always a Long Haul Trucker.Not if my shops sale's are any indication. The LHT especially is a really popular bike.
I was just riding in the Bend area all weekend and practically 90% of the cycling tourist I saw were on LHTs. I have one. I live in Portland and not a morning goes by when I don't see a number of fellow commuters on Surlys, usually LHTs or CCs. The LHT is a great bike but if I were to get one now I'd get a Disc Trucker for sure. I just wonder about how Surly can maintain so much inventory when there is so much overlap in their models now--LHT/DT, Pugs/Moonlander/ICT, etc... Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all those bikes are the same but again, I just wonder how much inventory Surly can maintain.Not if my shops sale's are any indication.

I didn't love that I love my Farley (6) either, but I goddamn love that bike. Once I got on it, the PUMP wouldn't go away. Trek is going HAM with their fat bikes.How about 2 out of 3. It can be done SS with thru axles but no promises on the wheel staying put.
Leaves the door open, at least in my mind, for a Blackborow. I ride at night a lot so the ugly Salsa paint jobs aren't a big deal.
I've even considered the 2016 Trek Farley. Hard to admit that but its true.
If my whimpy QR can hold the wheel in place, then 12mm TA should be no problem. I wouldn't hesitate for a second. That said, the Alt drops on my BB have been working out just fine.How about 2 out of 3. It can be done SS with thru axles but no promises on the wheel staying put.
