Where to buy LHT online, cheap?

I just had an opportunity to buy an LHT and have it shipped to Thailand cheap ( by sea freight, consolidating with a Thai student returning home. Unfortunately, when I contacted Spicer Cycles as recommended in this forum, I was told that Surley ceased supplying LHT to them, since they were selling too low. Does any one know of an alternative on line source? Thanks.

I think (and could be wrong) there made in Thailand. Just think about the mileage on that frame before it ever gets built and rode! I wonder if they have a factory outlet store in Thailand? That would save shipping it all round the world.

Yeah--I was one of the last people to get one from Spicer. He can still get Surly stuff like forks, racks, etc., but no more frames.

Airbomb has them for $368.95 http://shop.airbomb.com/page.cfm?Pag...ory=629&type=T

About the cheapest I've seen so far.

Spicer no more? Screw Surly. Unless it's just a nice way of saying we don't ship offshore for that margin.

Did you know in 2007 Surly will be selling a built up LHT as a complete bicycle?

Hopefully, these will show up on the internet bike shops in the early spring.

Spicer Cycles is great shop. Can't believe they were cut off by Surly.
