    Any Clyde's on a Long Haul Trucker?

    I'm thinking of getting a LHT and wondered if anyone here who is a clyde has one and what your thoughts are of it.

    Thank you.

    The LHT is about as burly and rugged as they come. I'm on the low end of the clyde-scale (200lbs) and I love mine. If you want more off-road capability then look at the Ogre, but if you are looking for a rough and tough bike for road / gravel riding the LHT is great.

    I agree with Holmes. I'm 250(ish) and have had an LHT for years. Great bike. I haven't broke it yet. Its everything you could ever want in a bicycle, except fast. Its not slow, its just not fast. At least, not as fast as my CC. Overall, though, I'd rate the LHT/DT a great bike for clydes, whether you tour or not, since its purpose built to carry heavy loads. Also, the 26" version is especially good as 26" wheels are inherrantly stronger than 700c and allow for wider tires, which is very important for clydes. There aren't really many other choices for a road-oriented bike with 26" wheels, unless you live in the UK and can get a Thorn easily.
