Financial Transparency Disclaimer: I didn’t create this website with the sole purpose to make money. I do however, receive a small percentage 4-6% if you purchase from the links below. Generally, I have found these items to have the best pricing and shipping options.

Alternatively, I recommend working with your LBS (local bike shop) and give those guys a chance to put a package price together.

    Please add your choice of shifters and panniers? Also what other essentials do you take on your tours?


    • Chris Garrison

      Hi Nick,
      Thanks for the comments. I’ve added the shifters to the components list.
      As for panniers, I hope to add a “gear review” page soon.

  • Alex

    Hey there many thanks for this walk through I plan on starting real soon. Does the LHT gearing accommodate paddle shifters? And can you suggest any drop down handle bars? Thanks again

  • Joshua Smith

    Hi Chris

    Excellent website – beginning my own build at the moment. What bottom bracket are you using on yours?


    • Chris Garrison

      Hi Josh,
      Glad to hear you are building your own Surly. The crankset listed in the components list includes the bottom bracket, Shimano Deore 2-piece 9-Speed Mountain Bicycle Crank Set – FC-M590)
      Best of luck with your build,

  • Jay

    Thanks for sharing this info… this is exactly what I was looking for. I just got a hold of a Surly frame, but being tha I don’t know much about bikes, this is the perfect guide.

    Thanks again.
