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.
I use this bike for commuting and fully loaded touring and never a problem. Bike is stable and beautiful.
I ride so much I have lost 10kgs. :)
I would like to buy a Surly LHT 54cm and I would be interested in the Utility blue'08 LHT but not the last Blue Velvet'10 one!!
So could you confirm the blue model ones you ordered and you expect for the late march are the blue'08 version and not the blue'2010 version?
Thanks a lot for answer!
Also, when will you have more of the black 54 frames?
Best option would be go physically try out some different bikes to see what fits better.
I'm 5' 7" with a 30" inside leg, which LHT frame would be suitable?
Can vary wildly though.. see this article:
I'm 5' 8" with a 29" inside leg. I've just completed a LHT 52cm frame build and it fits perfectly. However I did e-mail Surly to ask their advice prior tp purchasing the frame.
The geometry is very good.
Hope that helps.
