Hi everyone who reads the touring section:-) I am excited to find this forum and I'd like to get to know you!
I am an experienced tourer, although it has been a while:-( I just ordered a Surly Long Haul Trucker and have received it! Now, I need to pick parts. I want to just make one order through my bike shop with eveything that I want. I want to run a straight bar and mtn bike shifters. I am pretty sure I want to go with sram shifters and rear derailer. If this was your bike and wanted mid-range componentry, wwyd?
The frame uses 26 inch wheels. What rims?
Thanks so much!!!
