    WTB: XS all-terrain bike (Surly Troll, Pugsley, etc)

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Looking for a lightly used 13-14" frame suitable for off-road and mixed terrain touring/bikepacking. The ability to attach racks or bags is a must. If anyone has an XS Surly Troll or Pugsley, those would be ideal. This is for a 5'1" lady rider. Other bike (commuter) is a 42cm LHT with 26" wheels. Either a frameset or complete bike, depending on price and condition.

    PM me if you have something that fits the bill. Thanks!

    I'd seriously consider something like a mid-fat ECR. A lot better for bikepacking than the troll or pugsley. Easy handling but stable. Made for bikepacking. They make a 27+ model in her size.

    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    Wanted something similar; mixed surface touring commuter and got a Salsa Vaya. I'm 5'1" and it fits very well. I test road several Surly bikes. The LHT was a favorite but still found the top tubes too long for me. I can put anything on the Salsa and with a professional fit it rides like a dream.
