|Surly Long Haul Trucker|
Ready for my morning commute to work.
Having places to go in a hurry after work, is what has kept me from riding to work more than anything else.
The Long Haul Trucker is a true touring bike, but also works great as a commuter bike. Mine is set up with a dynamo front hub. The hub generates power for the front and rear lights. I run the lights even in bright daylight, to improve my visibility to motorists. Having the ability to attach full pannier bags to the rear rack makes bike commuting much easier. I can carry a rain jacket, change of shoes and cloths, and my lunch with room to spare.
I enjoyed finally getting a chance to commute to work. "It's been a long time!" Hopefully I will get to ride into work more in the next few months.
