My wife has decided her new bike may be a Surly LHT. The 46-cm frame geometry closely matches the geometry of her Giant Boulder step-through. She hesitates to get an aluminum frame due to carpal tunnel / vibration issues that the aluminum bikes seem to have.
I ride an LHT and have enjoyed it as a commuter bike & recreational steed since November. We'll start some touring in the next year. We're both 53, ride 12 - 16 miles 3 or 4 times a week.
Could I get any of the ladies who have or are riding the LHT to comment on their experience?
