After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
Surly bikes purchased on REI.com can only be shipped to the REI store of your choice for pickup. The bikes are fully assembled and the shipping is free!

Surly Long Haul Trucker Bikeis rated4.8out of5by5.
Rated4out of5byMaxCatMDWVfromLong Time Coming!I've been watching this bike and dreaming for about 2 years now. I saw it come on sale, and pulled the trigger. Added a cheap Topeak rear rack, Ortlieb Rear Roller Panniers, a Light & Motion Taz 800 headlamp and some Shimano M424 pedals. I load the panniers down with clothes and books for work, and strap a 14lb lunch box to the top of the rack. The bike can certainly haul a lot. I'm riding it 8 miles to and from work in Oregon, so some very minor hills. I'm out of shape and easing a low back injury, but I can comfortably hold 12 mph. I've always hated wind on my road bike, but this thing loaded down is a dog when it comes to wind. I love the bike and am very happy I spent the money.

Rated5out of5byREIyakfromAcross Canada and daily commuting2010; 62cm. Cycled Vancouver to Ottawa - Fraser Canyon right off. Appreciated the wide gearing including awesome granny gear. Towed a Bob trailer plus front panniers. Bike felt rock solid. The frame flexed some with the trailer but I got used to it and it was never 'wobbly'. Great components. Original tires lasted 6000km. 5 flats. Now it's my daily commuter but it longs for the open road! I'm glad I bought this bike.

This is the mountain bike you wish your road bike was
I did not expect to like the LHT very much - I ride fast road and TT bikes and enjoy speed - Ok, my wife loves it when I admit being wrong and I was wrong about the LHT.
My TT bikes are sports cars - my road bikes are sedans - the LHT is a pickup truck - big, comfortable and versatile. Today I will do about 80 miles with my lunch, locks, jacket etc on the rear rack.
Every component of the bike works together very well, shifting is quick and easy, I especially enjoy shifting when hill climbing with high pressure on the shifters and it shifts just fine.
I did put on a set of what I call triathlon bars and they are fantastic because the long wheelbase and comfy seating position make riding hunched down much more relaxed and removes pressure from my wrists.
Also on pedals I am a clip fan, but I got the Ergon pedals from REI and also expected not to like them, but darn, they are comfortable and not needing special shoes makes life off the bike easier.
Of course REI Staff is amazing to work with and very helpful.
This is a great bike that I highly recommend for long fun rides.

Rated5out of5bysb zendogfromJust as advertised - great on long haulsI've ridden about 300 miles on the LHT since I bought it. It's way more comfortable than my carbon fiber road bike for long rides. I'm less bent over with the tall head tube and stem so I can comfortably stay in down position for long periods. Gearing is great for hills. Brakes and heavy weight are drawbacks but well known. Bike is built to last and I'll be putting it to the test when I kick off my cross country tour next month.
