Didn't those die off with the other dinosaurs of the 70s? Truth is, there is little as epic as a really long bike ride. It resets your mind. It challenges your body and spirit. It stirs and purges, soothes and recharges. 'The daily grind' becomes meaningful. Just you, and everything you need to live, packed up on your bike.
So where do you want to go? To work and back everyday? A week long trip to the next state over? Or perhaps La Paz, Bolivia, via Homer, Alaska. Maybe you just want to wake up and wonder where you are. The Surly Long Haul Trucker is the right tool for the job. It's not flashy and it's not made of the latest, lightest, thinnest alloy. It is made, like all our frames, of cro-moly steel. Why? Because steel is tough and durable, yet resilient.
It soaks up the rough stuff, but remains stiff enough to provide an efficient ride. Sure, aluminum can be tough and carbon fiber can soak up road static. Heck, titanium even acts a lot like steel. But there is nothing else that does all the things that steel does for so little money.
Surly designed the geometry for all day, every day comfort, even fully loaded (quite different from the vast majority of frames out there). Long chain stays and laid back head and seat tube angles provide a comfy platform for day after day after day in the saddle.
It's got braze-ons for front and rear racks. The head tube is taller on top to help put you in a more upright position and save strain on your neck and back, shoulders, wrists and elbows. Like all Surlys, it sports practical, standard sizing for things like seat post, front derailleur, and stem. It even sports downtube shifter braze-ons. All this means you can easily find new parts for it or use stuff you already have.
The Long Haul Trucker isn't the bike that everyone is going to have. It isn't the next big thing. It won't race like a champ or scream down rocky single track. It isn't about impressing your friends. It's a tool for finding out what you are capable of inside. Are you ready to ride?
About Road Frames
Road frames have come a long way in recent years with new advancements in technology and materials. Carbon fibre, aluminium and titanium are all widely used now as well as the more traditional steel tubesets. They all have their own advantages: aluminium offers good performance at a reasonable price, titanium offers ultimate performance at a premium price while carbon fibre offers superb comfort and performance at intermediate cost. It is not uncommon for the materials to be mixed to give the benefits of all the materials in one frame - a carbon fibre rear end on an aluminium frame, for example. Here at Wiggle we list a selection of road frames to suit most budgets, from the affordable aluminium frames right up to the technically advanced carbon and titanium frames from leading manufacturers.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
On the size chart it starts at 56cm and goes to 64cm, but when I want to purchase one it starts at 42cm and goes to 58cm.
(1) How long is the uncut steerer on the frame? more specifically on the the 62cm frame how much of the fork steerer tube extends above the top of the frame?
(2) Is a headset included - I would think not, but the photo seems to show one?
2 Do the forks come with the star nut or is that part of the head set
