Too good and does not break fast
Good looks, performance compromised.V 1 Comment
Got one since 1990 still gets me going' ups & downs straight!
Ever stronger mountain bike
Very nice frame design
Its great looking...and the dirt jumper of its version is just awesome!
WHAT THE? Surly should be closer to the top ten than this. I have owned a LHT for 10 years, I have ridden it fully loaded across Australia (6000km's) and all up it has done over 12'000 km's. The only thing I have ever had to replace was the chain, due to it stretching. Which is fair enough after being heavily loaded for 6000km's. Surly adorn their frames with top end components for reliability and I have never broke a spoke, even from riding over rough ground fully loaded. Surly still care enough to make steel framed bikes and anyone who has done a lot of riding will know steel frames absorb more of the bumps. It is a beautiful bike to ride, smooth and comfortable. Surly put a lot of engineering and thought into their products.
I have owned many different bikes over the years and still have six hanging in the shed, Giant, Wheeler, Indi 500 (steel frame built commuter), Peugeot, Haro and my Surly.
I love my Surly LHT.
But at the end of the day, horses for ...more
Seriously? These guys are a small(ish) maker but they were pretty much one of the first brands to come up with the fatbike (the pugsly) and the 29er plus (krampus). They make other great models too. I have a karate monkey and my father has a krampus. They are good bikes, pretty basic (steel hardtails) but the makers know what they are doing in making these bikes.
They have 4 shock absorbers and they're comfy
Frame not bad, but a little bit heavy
