[Scot sent us this photo of his Long Haul Trucker. —ed.]
This is my Surly Long Haul Trucker. I bought it new on eBay built with Deore group components. I use it as a daily everything bike, for fitness, and sometimes for the long commute, 50 miles round trip, to work. I ride between 18 and 50 miles per day for fitness and weight loss. I have lost 65 pounds since Thanksgiving of 2010. To celebrate I ordered a new Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen which is being built as I type this. I hope to have it by the end of June. I have no intention of retiring this bike. I still love my Surly and it will become strictly a commuter and foul weather bike.
The Surly originally came with a Flyer sprung saddle which I sold and replaced with a B17 and I also replaced the SPD pedals with MKS touring pedals and added a Busch and Müller sidewall dynamo and lights, Zimbale bag and Nashbar panniers.
