Surly Long Haul Trucker black 700c - 62cm

For sale used Surly Long Haul Trucker. I have used this bike for about 5 years and have come to the conclusion that’s it’s too big for me, so I’ve bought another bike. It’s in full running order and comes with a rear rack. It could do with a clean, but apart from that it’s pretty much perfect apart ...

SORTED - 58 cm touring bike frame and forks

I have a Surly Long Haul Trucker 62cm bike, but it’s too big for me. I want to transfer all the kit over on to a smaller frame. 700C wheels, rim brakes
Has anyone got a decent frame to sell ( or even swap)?

Vision - use of glasses and neck pain

When cycling I have the problem of having to raise my neck in order to look through my prescription glasses. This causes pain when cycling all day.

Ladies cycle hire - New Zealand
