Since the announcement of the 26in wheels for all sizes of the LHT by Surly I have been waiting. I periodically called Surly and also had my LBS watching. My LBS (who is shutting their doors at the end of the month)is not a dealer so they were not able to get one from their supplier. Yesterday I did my Surly call to find out that there was only ONE left. I callked the dealer across town and went there today to order/check out my fit on a 56 and 58 in stock...700cc. Well as luck would have it I am the proud orderer of the last 56/26 LHT in the world. The only problem is that the only color available is blue as of now, truccachino is definitely gone and black won't be available for some time according to Surly. Looks like I am off to the powdercoaterand soon to be th proud owner of a LHT At least I will have it for my Feb. tour, thanks for reading.
