    Has anyone broken a Surly Trucker frame ?

    I'm very interested in the LHT and was just wondering if anyone has cracked an LHT frame and if yes, did you have a positive or negative experience with the warranty and Surly.

    I haven't cracked an LHT frame but I did crack both chainstays on a Steamroller (also made by Surly). They asked me to work through my LBS to handle it and it was taken care of new frame in a week or two. Surly said that it was likely a heat treating issue they had on that batch of frames (this was a few years ago the frame was "battleship gray".)
