    Hi

    I have decided to buy a long haul trucker but will not have the chance to try before I buy. Therefore I could do with a little advice as to what size frame to buy given that I am around 6 foot tall.

    Cheers

    Put a book loosely between your legs up close to your crotch. Mark where the bottem of the book is then measure from there to the floor. Then call a bike store that carries LHT and give them that number and see what size they reccoment. Try a couple of bike stores. You are probably a 61 cm. That is the distance from the crank center to the top of the top tube along the seat tube. Don't buy it until you are sure. There ought to be many on this forum with LHT to give you their data. I do not know why non have replied.

    Fit is First. Study the Surly site for all you can glean there, then contact your nearest dealer for fitting instructions. Unfortunately, the odds of a dealer having a complete bike for you to test ride is slim, so most likely it'll have to be ordered based on sizing info.
