A replacement for my stolen Long Haul Trucker. Purchased in April, hit by a car in July. Repaired and reserved for off road riding and touring.
This is a stock Surly Disc Trucker 54 cm, with 26" wheels. The only custom part is the Soma Junebug off-road drop handlebar.
I rode this bike, in this configuration, from Corvallis to the coast twice in 2014. The first ride in March was mostly on paved roads with just a short section of gravel. The second ride in September was mostly gravel.
