To anyone who owns the Surly LHT: >Since it has bar end shifters, is most of the riding on the lower drop bars? If so, does this get to be tiring/uncomfortable? >The tires are pretty thick giving it the advantage of comfort, but disadvantage of speed. Is the speed difference noticable? If it is, would you suggest a buyer takes it into consideration? >The shifter cables are pretty exposed, have you ever had them snag and tear? To anyone who owns the Jamis Coda: >What are the pros and cons of the flat handle bars? How far do you have to ride before you wish you had more hand positions? >How nicely does it handle bumps and cracks? >The frame and components are basically the same as a road bike, the only difference is the flat bar. The flat bar makes it _significantly_ less expensive, but the obvious disdavantage is less hand positions. Would you say this is a significant trade off?
