You could also try Speedgoat, I just ordered a crosscheck from them. I should get it tomorrow, great service and free shipping, which always helps.

Strange that both of those places only have it up to 56cm... ie: all the 26" tire frame sizes only.

Go to Harris Cyclery (Sheldon Brown's shop) and support someone who supports all of us: https://sheldonbrown.com/harris/surly-lht.html

RiotBoi,

I find your comment about the level of service you recieved interesting. Could this be The Bike Shop by chance? I recently stopped by to get pricing for a Dahon bike and felt like I was interupting a social gathering among the employees. I left with nether pricing or delivery information about the Dahon.

I have better luck at bike factory, but I don't know if they sell Surly.

Try Spicer at www.spicercycles.com.

Great service and prices. I ordered a 54cm LHT and Gene Spicer shipped it to Japan at a very good price.

There might not be anything but 26" '05 frames left. The 06s don't seem to be available yet.

The cheapest online price I have found is at https://taylorsbikeshop.com/site/page...and=405&type=T

The size 60 frames seem to be out of stock, and according to surlyblog new stock is not expected until early February.

I swear, Surly is the most screwed up company. They are *constantly* running out of the various frames. They must have exceedingly poor management of that business.

Haha, I agree. I had to wait 3 months for my frame. I would have urged ppl to boycott Surly untill I got my LHT, except that would have taken more than three months...

I bought my 62cm LHT from Spicer Cycles. A great company with the best service I have ever had.

16,000 units on the road. Put a cap on that very cool sage green (love mine ) and bring on the new colours!...

RiotBoi: Hope you find your size in green if that's what you're after...
