As with its sister model, the Disc Trucker is a very thoughtfully specified, heavy duty traveller's bike. We'll let Surly themselves elaborate below, but take note here of the following details: Shimano XT hubs and LX rear mech; NOT STI, but durable and Shimano 9 speed bar end shifters with gearing comprising of 48/36/26 front and 11-34 rear sprockets. Tried and tested Avid cable disc brakes. It's priced as a 'complete bike' American style - that's unequipped. Don't worry, we can fit the mudguards, so you get to choose (we stock stainless steel for those who are interested); and as for luggage racks, check out Surly's indestructable own for £100 each. Otherwise, we have lots to choose from starting at £25.
"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. 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."
