FYI - All Surly frames are going up in price. If you've been waiting to buy a LHT and can find one in stock you may want to pull the trigger sooner rather than later....

It's not just Surly. This past Saturday I was talking to one of the inside guys at the largest bike shop(s) in Indy who has 25 years in the bike biz and he claims he has never seen increases in price from Trek like he is seeing with the 2009 models vs this year's offerings. He was told that either the prices had to go up big, or the level of componentry had to go down (which has been done lately) or both.
