Surly Cycles- The Premier Touring Option for the Serious Cyclist

As our premium long distance touring bike, we recommend the Surly Long Haul Trucker.

The Long Haul Trucker touring bike has been designed for all day, every day comfort, even fully loaded (quite different from the vast majority of frames out there).

The frame is designed to be stable and supple fully loaded with gear. Other bikes simply don’t handle big loads as well. Long chain stays and a laid back head angle provide a comfy platform for day after day after day in the saddle. It is the perfect bike for New Zealand conditions.

We have been able to arrange a fantastic price for the Surly Long Haul Trucker. Not only that, but with our hire and buy-back options you are able to check out this premier bike to see what all the fuss is about.

* Steel frame
* Sizes 54 and smaller have 26" wheels. sizes 56 and larger have 700c wheels
* Ritchey logic headset
* Kalloy stem, Zoom handlebar with cork tape
* Tektro levers and cantilever brakes
