Black and Blue 2010 Surly Long Haul Trucker
As you know from my last posts I'm excited, maybe too much so, about buying a touring specific bike. After test riding the LHT, I find it hard to ride my old bike.
The current models of LHTs are fairly well sold out, so I'm wondering about next years model. I decided to just email Surly to see if they'd respond.
I'm pleased to report that all my questions were answered in a professional and timely way. Way to go, Surly!
I'm a Twin Cities commuter and tourer who is looking to purchase a 2010 LHTs. When will they be out? Any hint on the colors? I saw a "Park Tool Blue" one in a Eurobike 09 image; not sure that's the color for me. What's with the smaller wheels?
They responded after one business day:
"Our new colors and whatnot will be available around December or January. We do have a new blue for the LHT and black will be available as well. The olive and truckaccino will be discontinued.
26” wheels will be an option on the larger sizes – you’ll chose either a 700c frame or a 26” wheel frame. Both have advantages – the 26” wheels are inherently stronger and have a greater availability for tires and tubes outside the US.
