    Specialised Tricross Vs Surly Long Haul Trucker Vs Kona Jake the Snake

    I know this is a bit of a big ask, but I would greatly appreciate any opinions on these bikes.

    I am primarily interested in durability - something that can take my weight (115kgs) and a few bumps communting.

    Thanks

    I would suggest the Surly Long Haul Trucker frame will last way longer than the other two.

    Minigt, if you`re tempted by LHT, I suggest trying one before you order. That`s always a good idea, of course, but in this case keep in mind that the LHT has seriously long chainstays and that the smaller sizes are designed for 559 wheels. You may well like it but it`s kind of a unique critter. I`m interrested in them too, for what it`s worth.
