Back in 2008, Josh in our Rocky River store was planning a bike trip out west, and he wasn't planning to get a new bike for it. Then, a month before his scheduled departure, he discovered his bike frame was cracked. That's when Josh decided to buy his first brand-new bike, the Surly Long Haul Trucker.
