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 Disc Trucker comes in. Disc Trucker is a Long Haul Trucker specifically designed for the unique forces discs impose. We’ve made sure it can run discs, racks, and fenders with no jury rigging, a somewhat unique feature we’ve just now decided to call “simultaneous compatibility.”

  • Every braze-on you’ll ever need: front and rear rack mounts, fender eyelets, water bottle bosses, spare spoke holder, pump peg
  • Available in 26” (sizes 42–58 cm) and 700c (sizes 56–64cm) wheel diameters
  • Disc brake compatibility (if rim brakes are more your thing, check out the Long Haul Trucker)
  • Clearance for 26” x 2.1” tires with or without fenders (26” platform) or 700c x 42mm with fenders, 45mm without fenders (700c platform)

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.
