I think I like it

Nice-looking ride. I particularly like that rear rack!

I'm sure it rides very nicely, it's just very...beige.

I go pick up mine tomorrow! Can't wait to throw some pics up, your wife's looks great.

Of course we picked Truckachno, so other than the first few pictures, they'll never look that pristine again.

I'm judging by the pump mount on the head tube, and I say it's a 50 cm. Just like mine.

That is a 50cm. Exactly. It's set up for urban cruising right now. What do you guys think of those Schwalbe Kojaks? I think they look badass. I really wanna remove those reflectors on the wheels.

Just got the same fenders for my LHT- they are a perfect match.. I was amazed at how some people were a bit upset over the logo on the rear fender. Took me a day or two to even notice it! (see the OP's bottom photo). Oh, and very nice bike, by the way :-)

Available at pretty much any bike shop in the US and Canada. I don't know what normal retail is on it.... maybe $39.99?

Axiom DLX rear rack with wood top. Too much money.

SunLite makes a version of it, too. I was way low on my price guess, wasn't I? The SunLite one would be $59.99

Handsome. What did you say your address was?

On the reflectors: my wife still has them on her casseroll. I keep wondering if she'd notice them missing.

I took the reflectors of my CC and have never looked back. I love those tires. I would be afraid to see those coming at me. Also gotta love the color. I like the creamroller (on the steamroller) color better, but that is also awesome.

I wish Surly made the larger sizes in 26". Toe clip clearance would be better and all the reasons for having 26" for loaded touring stand.
