    My Surly LHT reborn!



    Before = below - how my LHT looked for the past 7yrs

    After = above - my 2011 strip and rebuild of this trusty bike



    I tried to increase my LHTs functionality [metal fenders, full mud flaps and dyno lighting] while adding some well deserved bling!....

    Very spiffy. I'm always leery of non-black bar-tape because at some point I'm going to get my hands all grimy and then turn the tape black anyway...

    How had your sprung brooks aged? Or was it just time for a regular?

    My sprung Brooks is perfect - looks like it will last another 30yrs+ I just had a really really hard B17 I wanted to break in and the LHT gets ridden frequently so I put it on there. I'll find another home for the honey sprung B17.

    I have a sprung b17 on my CC commuter. It works well with the upright bars (Nitto Albatross) but I don't know that I'd put it on my LHT. It seems like my sprung B17 got sagged out pretty quick. It's not bad for my 4 mile commute and around town but I don't know that I'd tour with it. Still, I may have to give it a look.

    There seems to be some variability in the quality of Brooks saddle leather which isn't related to the model of saddle you have. All my Brooks saddles are going strong after years of hard use including getting wet.
