    Just picked my girlfriend up a new Trucker to add to the fleet last night. The new Smoggy Pearl is pretty killer in the sunlight! Temps here are about -5 so once it warms up a bit I'll take some daylight pics.

    I ask myself the same question every time I look at my Pacer, Crosscheck, and 700c Trucker... They have different bars and the CC is a single speed, but still lots of overlap. At least the Karate Monkey can be called a mountain bike!

    Long Haul Rambler

    Love my LHT. No major tours this year but hopefully a 3 day solo big mileage trip in June.

    Here's my LHT looking south towards the Clackamas River just outside of Estacada, OR. This was on a nice 90 mile ramble last month. We had a couple of weeks of unseasonably brilliant sunshine and warm temps.

    BTW - if you cut just the HTTP://...xxx.jpg right after the SRC= out of the Flikr HTML your photos would look better on MTBR. Not all compressed.

    Long Haul Truckers...

    I'm currently building my 26" trucker. It's a 52cm frame with disc brakes. I'm going to run it as a 1x9 with some flat bars and Ergon grips. The rear wheel is running a road cassette and a 105 derailuer shifted by a LX 9 speed shifter.

    My frame looks like there's a whole lot of wheel clearance and looks like it could run a 700c wheel. Has anyone used 700c wheels on a 26in frame?

    Ill post some pics soon!

    Not neccessarily. Depends on tire size

    my 62cm disc trucker came in today... I rushed to the shop to pick it up and had him swap headsets for me.... got it home and then found that the rear dropouts had been bent in shipping :-/... back to the shop and waiting for another one to get here

    If I got a new frame like that, I would send it back as well. But there's always the 2x4 option:

    hey... you've got my bars ;-)...

    ya if it wasn't a brand new frame I would have just cold set it with the 2x4 option... but being new I'm not to keen on the idea... in fact thats what I told the shop owner... I'm willing to sacrifice a few days out only because I want it right from the factory.

    Good call. Unless you got a discount for a blem, you deserve it perfect out of the box. You'd probably void the warrantee trying to cold-set it yourself.

    Hope you like the Trucker. They're sweet bikes.

    My 26" Long Haul Trucker with a 2.3" tyre on the front and a 2.1" at the rear. Very versatile bike, I commute on it, I take it off road, did a loaded tour of Spain and Portugal on it, collect my groceries….
    It's such a great bike. Thanks Surly.
