As you may know, the Long Haul Trucker enjoys a reputation as one of the best riding and most value-packed touring bikes out there. Sometimes a combination of load, climate and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a rim brake LHT provides, however, and that’s where the Disc Trucker comes in. It’s a Long Haul Trucker with 51mm I.S. caliper mounts instead of rim brake pivots. When designing the Disc Trucker, we started with a brand new set of rear dropouts which place the caliper on the chainstay, providing clearance for a rack and fender- no jury rigging to get a rack to play nice with a disc caliper.
This Disc Trucker is a Tony Butterworths Special, featuring some great Halo Vapour wheels, a Tiagra groupset and TRP Spyre brakes – in our opinion the best cable operated disc brakes on the market!
