Just got my sweet Surly LHT yesterday and I'm loving life :-). I know that the stock cassette will be perfect for long distance touring- but for now I am doing about 25 miles round trip daily commuting in the flat lands of South Florida. I would really like to swap out the touring cassette for something with 1 tooth increments throughout the range (or as close to that as I can get- perhaps 12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,21).
Will a 9 speed road cassette work on a 26" LHT rear hub? If not, could someone point me in the direction of something that will work for me.
