The Long Haul Trucker is easily the best value touring frame/bike on the market. The complete bikes are a great deal, but if you prefer to choose all your own components, start with this bare frame. With the relaxed geometry needed to carry a load while retaining stability, plus a full complement of rack and fender braze-ons, the LHT can easily be built up into the ultimate touring, commuter, or errand bike.

Traditionally the Long Haul Trucker has been designed around 700c wheels, but this new revision of the frame uses 26" wheels instead. Why might you select this option? Parts availability is one reason, if youre planning an extended tour to remote locations, 26" stuff is more readily available in parts of the world. And 26" also open the variety of "mountain bike" parts to you, which can be useful if youre a big rider, carry a heavy load, or beat on your equipment.

Comments about Surly Long Haul Trucker Frame 26" '11:

I built what was supposed to be a long-distance touring bike out of one of these frames so I could ride the Katy Trail in Missouri, and the Greater Alleghenny/CBO Canal Path trail from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC. Both EPIC rides and I highly recommend them.

But this bike is just so comfortable and well made and just good-at-everything, that it has pretty much become my go-to bike for almost everything.

If I'm going to ride in a busy city, I like the spry frame geometry and the 26-inch mountain bike wheels because I feel no hesitation about curb hopping to get in and out of traffic. Also, the 26-inch wheels allow me to use a slightly larger, more aggressive tire that can make short work of hard-pack single-track trails in the mountains.

It's fast enough to allow me to keep up with the roadies, rugged enough to take moderate mountain bike trails, and in the winter, I can run 3-inch studded snow tires and tear around where others fear to tread.

I love this bike, because I can take it anywhere and it always fits.
