Surly Disc Trucker, the well loved model gets upgraded stoppers.


From Surly: Sometimes a combination of load, climate and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a rim brake LHT provides. That’s where the Disc Trucker comes in. It’s a Long Haul Trucker with 51mm IS caliper mounts instead of rim brake mounts on the frame and newly redesigned fork. When designing the Disc Trucker we started with a brand new set of rear dropouts which place the caliper mount between the chain and seatstays, providing uncompromising clearance for a rack and fender. Cable/hose routing via our own Trip Guides runs along the downtube. Like the standard LHT, the Disc Trucker is available as a frameset and as a complete bike, with 26" wheels in 42–62cm frame sizes, and with 700c wheels in 56–62cm, the Disc Trucker will also be available in a 64cm, 700c wheel only. Most of the components on the complete bike are the same as the standard LHT, but a couple things are different. We chose Avid BB7 cable operated brakes for their proven reliability and ease of service, and Shimano XT M756 hubs with 6-hole rotor mounts. These hubs are durable and easy to maintain.
