Designed for comfort while simultaneously hauling a lot of stuff long distances, many consider Long Haul Trucker to be the gold standard of touring bikes. It features everything a long-distance bicycle tourist would need when traversing the globe.

LHT’s applications go well beyond global touring. It’s a great option for what we refer to as "extreme commuting." That means more than just carrying your laptop and change of clothes with you. You have the capacity for whatever the day throws at you.
