With luck, I'm going to get a new ride this month before a couple of fall riding events. I've been looking at the Surly Long Haul Trucker (amongst others) and am at the point where I need to go test ride.
But the Surly dealer is an hour away, and curiosity is getting the better of me. The shifters on the '09 LHT are at the end of the bottom bar. How do they work? Is it just cable tension like my old Sears 12 speed? (Nudge a little to change gears, but the amount is based on "feel"). Do they click? Their placement seems like it might be a pain to use. Any comments welcome.
