And you can get one on sale!!
We are putting our New Taiwanese BLT touring frames on SALE till the end of June.
The BLT Frame and Rack Packages are on sale and ready to ship almost instantly.
The package includes a Frame, Fork, Headset, and Stem (made in Taiwan) + Front and Rear Racks made in our shop in California. You get all this for the $795 + shipping and handling. You can get Black or Blue Racks.
That puts it at the same price as the Surly LHT, but, we feel it is a better design for Loaded Touring
There are also a few Shimano LX parts packages that can build up a complete bicycle with racks (except pedals) for $1499 again + shipping and handling http://brucegordoncycles.blogspot.com/2010_01_01_archive.html
Since we are having a Sale - I have also decided to discount our 4130 Chrome Moly Tubular Racks.
The Rear Rack is $145 (with extension Hoop on back - $160)
The Front Lowrider Rack is $125
Prices are good through the end of June and are + shipping and handling.
P.S. Tubus Racks may still be a little cheaper, but, ours are NOT Made in China!
