That's probably not a problem, but you can always get the Tubus Duo. It's what I have on my LHT and it is solid as a rock. The only drawback is a cross brace is a nice place to mount a light. Not all bikes have the required threaded low rider braze-on on the inside of the fork, but the Surly does.brewster said:The other thing I'm wondering about is clearance. My LHT has 26in wheels with PB Cascadia fenders, and in the winter I throw on 2.1 knobbies for snow. Is there enough clearance in the front Tara over-the-tire support brace for 2.1s?
