Long Haul Trucker « Back

A touring bike’s job is to go the distance and then some, in relative comfort, while carrying you and your gear.  The Long Haul Trucker was designed in all aspects to get you and your stuff to…wherever.  Its low bottom bracket and long chainstays provide comfort and stability, and those long stays increase heel clearance when carrying packed panniers.  Surly gave it ample tire clearance for larger tires (larger tires soak up a lot of road static) with room for mudguards too.  The frame’s tubing is thicker-walled and larger-diameter than standard road and sport-touring frames, and this pre-tunes it for the weight of cargo. And it’s got braze-ons for everything you’re likely to need, from racks to water bottle cages to spare spokes.

Like all Surly frames, it’s made of cromoly steel. Available as a frameset or as a complete bike. The ‘Trucker is available in a 26” wheel size across the size run, with an option for 700c in 56, 58, 60, and 62cm sizes.  Some people prefer the larger diameter 700c, and that’s cool.  26" is a more popular size around the world, however, so you’ll more easily be able to find replacement tubes, tires, and rims should the need arise. Smaller wheels are also stronger than their 700c counterparts, so they’ll stand up better to rough roads and heavy loads.
