Long Haul Trucker 26&Quot; 9 Speed Touring/Commuter Bike - 562806176
Over the years our Long Haul Trucker touring frame and complete bike has developed a devoted following. People understand and appreciate the LHTs dependability and everyday riding comfort, whether theyre cruising to the store or lost in the middle of nowhere.
The Long Haul Trucker was designed in all aspects to go the distance in relative comfort, and to be able to haul a bunch of stuff. Its low bottom bracket and long chainstays provide comfort and stability. We gave it ample tire clearance for larger tires (larger tires soak up a lot of road static) with room for fenders. The frames 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 its got all the braze-ons, from rack mounts to water bottle cage bosses to spare spoke holders. Like all our frames, its made of CroMoly steel. Youll probably never need to have the frame repaired, but if you do youre more likely to find someone who can weld steel than someone who can weld titanium or aluminum. Repair carbon fiber in the middle of Mongolia? Good luck with that.
For the completes we chose components that balance technical ability, durability, and value. This is stuff that works well on a fully loaded tourer, will last you a while, and wont shoot holes in your wallet. Add whatever else you need, like racks and fenders.
The standard Long Haul Trucker is compatible with good ol rim brakes. Its available as a frameset and as a complete bike, with 26? wheels in 4262cm frame sizes, and with 700c wheels in 5664cm. The fork has two sets of eyelets on the dropouts as well as at proper mid-blade height, and bosses built into the side of the crown. All this makes the fork compatible with most types of racks, and provides options how you can mount racks and carry your stuff.
