LHT & Gear Arrived

I just finished a small test ride on my new LHT and she ... is ... amazing.

I'm going to take her and her racks, fenders, pedals & new seat to the LBS tomorrow night so they can fight the hardware. After that we'll do a little break-in then a fitting.

I can already tell the reach a little too long. I'll probably have to replace the stem.

I was afraid the SPD pedals would be difficult to deal with (A530's) but after a few tries I was able to clip in and out without any trouble.

I'm damn excited!

LHT's rock, I have several bikes and my Trucker is hands down the one that provides the most smiles per mile.

Very sweet ride! Since I got my LHT the other bikes now languish. The mother is comfortable and has taken out more than one dainty bike.
You will enjoy yours no doubt...
