Finished building my LHT today...
Except for odds and ends the last thing I was waiting for were the rims. They finally arrived on Thursday so I built the wheels Thursday and Friday, assembled the bike yesterday, and wrapped it up today.
A couple of things left to do, the LBS only had black stems and I want silver so I'll be exchanging that when the silver one comes in. Also, I want grips that match the seat but I haven't decided on what yet.
I'm pretty excited to start using it!!!
Here's the build list:
Surly Long Haul Trucker frame, 54cm
Mavic XM 719 rims, 36h
Surly front hub
Deore XT rear hub
Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour tires, 26x1.75
Shimano UN54 bottom bracket
Deore crank, 22-32-44T
Shimano cassette, 11-34T
Deore derailleurs, front and back
Deore V-brakes, front and back
Deore shifters and levers
Crank Brothers handlebar
Brooks B-17 standard saddle
Surly racks, front and back
Planet Bike Cascadia ATB fenders
