The Long Haul Trucker is a touring frame, ideal for long self-supported rides.
This one comes with drop bars, bar-end shifters, heavy-duty rims, strong XT hubs, a Racktime touring rack and Gilles Berthoud mudguards. It sells for € 1700,- (bare frame: € 525,-). Below this picture you can see a 28 inch version of the Surly LHT.
Surly offers this frame with S&S couplers which allow to take the frame apart and thus avoid the oversize luggage fee on most airlines. Travellers-Trucker frameset: € 1300,-
The Cross-check is one of our favorite. You can do almost anything you want with this frame: a fast touring bike, a sturdy commuter, a singlespeed... You name it. The frame costs € 500,-
