    LHT for trail riding?

    I know some people out there are using the trucker for trail riding and I would love to see your setups. I think it would make a great all around bike. One to ride to the trailhead or whatever. I would appreciate any pictures you would like to share. Thanks!

    I've taken my Cross Check out on the mountain bike trails. I don't have pic handy, but it is the prebuilt version, and the only change I made was a Brooks saddle.

    The BB on the LHT is kinda low (for stable, loaded touring) so watch out for rocks/pedal strikes. No reason it won't work though, especially since you can fit some fat tires on it.

    I used to ride my LeMond Poprad cross bike on singletrack all the time. Conti Twister Pro 37cs were a nice tire. I'd have to slow down and pick my way through some of the rock gardens I could regularly plow through with my hardtail, but it was still a blast and super fast on the smoother stuff.
