I'd like some photos if these are still available. thanks, wendy

I have a 42" Surly LHT but I don't want to sell it!  I love it!  I am 5' 2"  (110lbs.) and it fits me perfectly.  I sat on my sister's 50"  LHT and it was HUGE.  The reach was WAY too long and it was uncomfortable.  I can ride my 42" all day long and it is comfortable.  It has been to Ecuador and all over the U.S. and it is just bomb-proof.  Make sure you don't get talked out of the right size-it has made all the difference for me.  Good luck.

Gear Talk / bar end vs brifter shifting for touring bike?
« on: January 09, 2008, 10:28:51 pm »
I'm a small woman thinking of ordering a Surly Long Haul frame and building it up.  The bike I ride now has brake-lever shifting and I love it but have heard that it isn't as reliable as bar end shifting-especially for out of the way places or countries. Can anyone give me some advice on the pros and cons?  I know that "brifters" cost way more but could possibly take them off my present bike so that may not be an issue.  thanks

Routes / Ecuador advice

Thinking of doing some touring in Ecuador.  Would like to fly into Quito and spend some time in the Andes, then thru the jungle to the coast.  Any suggestions, advice and help appreciated.  Trip would likely be this June/July.  Thanks, ws
