So, I am pretty set on a Surly Long Haul Trucker for my next bike. The local bike store has a 60cm used one in black that has some extra top-bar Salsa brakes installed, as well as a little rack on the front and an Axiom rack that looks pretty sturdy on the rear. I could save a several hundred buying the used bike, and I like it after riding it, but I was thinking that 26" wheels would be nicer for my touring bike, as that is what I have on my commuter. Less sizes of tubes and tires to keep around at home, and I could use my Surly's wheels on the commuter eventually when/if I buy some "nice" touring wheels in the future.
So, if the money really wasn't a big issue, what do you guys think? I really don't want to end up regretting getting the used one with 700cc wheels, but I don't really know that I would regret it.
Oh, and if I buy new, I could get the bike in blue instead of black, but that really isn't a big deal to me either.
