[Sumehra sent us these photos of her husband’s custom LHT. —Alan]
This is my husband’s Surly Long Haul Trucker, which we purchased in 2009 in the “Truckaccino” color with the stock build from our LBS in Atlanta: Peachtree Bikes. Since then, we have had it powder-coated a red-orange color and renamed it to Red Savina, one of the hottest peppers known to mankind. We have also upgraded the saddle to a Brooks Team Pro, added a pair of Shimano PD-M324 SPD MTB Pedals, SKS fenders, Planet Bike lights, a Topeak pump, Pletscher twin-legger kickstand, Cateye Strada wireless computer, a Carradice Super C saddlebag, a Carradice Bagman Expedition support, and a Nitto Saddlebag grip from Rivendell. To top it all off, I added a custom copper headbadge in the shape of a Red Savina pepper on fire, made by Tangerine Treehouse on Etsy.com.
We will soon be installing a Bionx PL-350 electric assist system (it is on the way from UPS!)
Thanks for putting this amazing gallery together, and hope you enjoy the photos.
