surly LHT in bangkok!

having just moved to thailand, was perusing the
local craigslist ads....found this surly LHT in
XL size available nearby. asking price is 21,000
thai baht, which works out to $625.

Surly Long Haul Trucker - bicycles - by owner

location not too far from my apartment, so if
anyone is interested in starting a tour from
bangkok and don't wanna ship your inferior
steel carp over, send me a pm and i can
stop by for a test ride.

Are you sure it's not a cheap knockoff? Slurry Long Distance Trucker?

I would offer $400 for it.

After all how many 6 foot 4 people in Thailand are there? It's not exactly a country of giants so the demand for the bike won't be there.
