Bikes. Parts. Chaos.

The Disc Trucker is a pure-bred drop bar touring bike suitable for traveling anywhere in the world on mostly paved roads.

Why Disc Brake Touring Bikes?

Disc Trucker enjoys the same reputation as Long Haul Trucker: It’s one of the best-riding and most value-packed drop bar touring bikes out there. Sometimes, however, a combination of load, climate, and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a standard rim-brake LHT can provide.

That’s where the newly redesigned Disc Trucker comes in. Packing reliable stopping power and a horde of useful mounting points, shortened chainstays up the Disc Trucker’s stiffness and maneuverability around corners. Add in improved fit and handling under load, plus captured thru-axles for tool-free removal and installation, and the Disc Trucker is ready to help you meet — or dodge — your daily obligations.

  • Dynamo routing on the fork, plus three-pack mounts on the blade and every braze-on you’ll ever need for racks, fenders, water bottle cages, and more
  • 12mm thru-axles for a stiffer feel and increased stability when fully loaded
  • Shortened seat tube and slightly sloped top tube for improved stand-over clearance, plus increased stack height for a more upright and comfortable riding position on those long hauls
  • Spec’d with the Truck Stop Bar and tubeless ExtraTerrestrial tires for dependable handling and traction
  • Flat-mount disc brakes
  • Frame sizes 42–56cm are available with 26” diameter wheels, while frame sizes 56–64cm are available with 700c diameter wheels
  • Clearance for 26” x 2.1” tires with or without fenders, or 700c x 47mm with or without fenders
  • Bike Capabilities

    • 5/5 with Pavement Touring
    • 5/5 with Rack Compatibility
    • 4/5 with Tire Clearance
    • 5/5 with Cargo Load Stability

    NOTE: You can ride your bike wherever the hell you want, but this is what we think this bike is best at.
