Long Haul Trucker

I looked on Surly web site and I posted this in the touring sub forum before as well. I'm trying to find out the lenght of the steering tube on the pre built Surly LHT 60cm. I posted this before, but the people replied with the fork length. I also called the factory in Minn. and nobody knew. Thanks for any replys.

Get some paper and write this down -

a 60cm LHT (as well as all other frame size >54) uses a 700c fork with an uncut steerer tube length of 320mm.

the 60cm frame has a head tube length of 189mm.

I thought I read somewhere that they cut the tube on pre built bikes, if not thanks alot, I'm starting to get nervous and don't want to screw up.

well they can't cut much off:

189 + 33 (hs) + 5 (brk hanger) + 45 (stem) = 272mm leaves only 48mm to cut off

and i see ~30-35 mm spacers in the bike pic
