I sold my LHT frame to Derrick from Lexington today, a somewhat bittersweet moment, more than I had anticipated. It was showing its age and so I decided to sell the 26" LHT and move everything over to the new Troll. The (out-of-focus) pic above was the from Parkers Mt. Fire Rd. in the final 10m of our Big South Fork camping/biking adventure in 2010, personally my favorite adventure by bike. The pic below is from our mini-tour this June '12, a grand time except for the day of cold rain.
The LHT carried me, more than anything, on many commutes, along with numerous gravel miles. It served me super-well. Derrick's household is full of bike usage, bike love and bike adventures, so I'm pleased that it's being passed along well. I only hope that my Troll can serve me as well as the LHT did.
Adios amigo, ugly pea-green rusty bike thing.
