LHT Complete on the way - very exciting

Thanks everyone for all their tips and advice over the last year or so.

Yesterday I asked my LBS to order in a 60 cm complete. Last week I was caught between a 56 cm
and 58 cm but finally decided on the 60 cm. There will be enough standover and it will make it easier to
get the handlebars to good comfortable height.

I can't wait to get it, I've been super keen to buy a touring bicycle ever since discovering the crazyguyonabike website nearly two years ago. Now I'm just thinking of the nice Tubus racks that
are going to go on it. As well as the Nitto Noodle handelbars and Brooks saddle.

Soooooooo eeeexxxcccciiiiiittttttttiiiiinnnnnggggg!!!!!!!!!

Congrats! I hope the 60cm works out for you.

Here's a PHOTO I recently took of an LHT being used the way it should be; trucking across a long haul in Alaska.

Cheers,

Relax-- the bike will fit fine. It's a great bike for the money and you'll love riding it.
