I have a 2012 Surly LHT in blue 56cm frame that is 8 months old and in excellent condition. I had Bikes Unlimited in Lynchburg, VA build up the bike for a transam ride that I did this summer with the bike, the bike performed flawlessly. I am quite a fanatic about taking care of the bike, for example, I cleaned the chain daily on my transam ride. The bike really looks like new. It has new brake pads, almost new Continential Gaterskin tires and a new chain.
I had it built up as tricked out performance touring machine as you can see from the parts lists. It weighs in at just under 25 lbs and is very fast. The bike cost me 2,600.00 and I am selling it for 1,400.00 plus shipping, less pedals and bottle cages (I will stick them on the new frame). I am only selling it because I have a long torso and short legs and just ordered a custom CoMotion Frameset. We live in Central Virginia. Here is a link to my transam ride this summer with the bike: http://people.hsc.edu/faculty-staff/edevlin/edsweb01/Personal/cycling/cycling.htm
, I have more photos of the bike if needed.
Here is the parts listing:
