Gallery: Scot’s Surly Long Haul Trucker

Scot's LHT

[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.

Here is a photo of my year-round commuter which I use here in Boulder, CO. I have a 15 mile commute and during the winter it is quite dark. I use some serious lighting, both dyno powered and battery powered. I ran out of handlebar room so I added a second tier of mounting space. It’s not the lightest bike out there but it is always out there!

Surly Long Haul Trucker: Brooks B67 seat, Nitto Albatross handlebars and Tubus Cargo rack posing on the Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia. This setup makes the LHT a very nice commuter bike but the drop bar that comes with the LHT would be better for touring because a drop bar has more hand positions and is more aerodynamic. The white tape on the rims is 3M Scotchlite reflective tape.

This bike was purchased at the Fairfield Bicycle Shop in Victoria, British Columbia. I wrote a blurb at CrazyGuyonaBike about the bridge where the picture was taken.

Gallery: Logan’s Surly Long Haul Trucker

The Surly Long Haul Trucker (aka, the “LHT”) is an extremely popular touring bike. It also seems to be gaining in popularity among commuters and city-dwellers who either build it up from a frameset or modify the factory build to better suit urban riding. I think this popularity owes itself to the fact that the LHT hits a nice price/quality sweet spot while providing great versatility. More
