yeah I can't spell. I am really torn, between two bikes, and trying to figure out which size to get. I used to have a 56cm LHT, that was too big, so I stripped the parts, sold the frame, built up a 52cm Cross Check that fits like a dream. I want another LHT. The 56 was quite a bit too big, my 52cm Cross Check fits perfectly, and I cant figure whether to get a 52 or a 54 cm LHT. Nobody around here has them in stock so I can't test ride, and don't know how the fit between the two compares.
I am also looking at the Surly Troll (yes, I am a Surly nut. I have had a Pacer, an LHT, two Cross Checks, I like them a lot, mainly due to the Jeep like quality of being able to customize them to no end).
Now, I like to go touring off road, mainly fire roads, but single track when needed. I particularly like bikepacking, but I am not out there trying to jump 3 feet in the air with 50 pounds of gear strapped to the bike.
I am so stuck in a delimma. Advice?
