    Looking for a M or L WORLD TROLLER

    Hi,
    I already contacted surly, my local surly dealers and no luck. Only S and XL available.

    Anyone not using their M/L world troller frame and willing to sell? My other option get an old troll frame and install couplers and repaint it,but too much of a hustle, more money and time waisted in the whole process.

    Any info is appreciated
    Thanks

    That may be your only option. It's what I did. If you end up going with a coupler retrofit Bilenky Cycle Works are the pros to call.
    Good luck

    When I priced out World Troller, it seemed like it wouldn't be way more expensive to start with a Troll frame and have retrofitted with couplers, but it still would have been more expensive, just not prohibitively more expensive. On the other hand, it could have been painted a color of my choice. But being that it was both easier and cheaper to get the World Troller, I went that route.

    Of course if you go with the retrofit, you can go with the new style troll frame. Although I wonder if it will be harder to pack now that it has a little wider spacing. The larger frame triangle is kind of appealing. I thought having it suspension-corrected was a good idea, but going no 2 years now, and I still don't see putting a suspension fork in any time soon.

    Of course if you prefer the old style frame, you might even find it used and end up with it not being a huge difference, price-wise, between that the World Troller.

    Good luck.
