The LHT is in most ways a typical touring bike. It has a low bottom bracket and long chainstays give comfort and stability. It's got all the braze-ons, from rack mounts to water bottle cage bosses to fender mounts to a spare spoke holder. Like all our frames, it's made of CroMoly steel. You'll probably never need to have the frame repaired, but if you do you're more likely to find someone who can weld steel than someone who can weld titanium or aluminium. Repair carbon fiber in the middle of Mongolia? Good luck with that.
The frame's 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 like all Surlies it has ample tire clearance because larger tires soak up a lot of road static and provide a little cushion to take the edge off after a long day over rough roads. 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 gives options how you can mount racks and carry your stuff.
For the complete bikes 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 won't 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, and it's available as a frameset and as a complete bike, with 26" wheels in 42-62cm frame sizes, and with 700c wheels in 56-64cm.
