LHT 26″ Wheeled Build PT5…

To debadge or not to debadge?

I’m a proud Surly owner and love my original Long Haul Trucker. I would never think about stripping the decals off my other Surly bikes, but for some reason I keep having that thought about this 26″ wheel LHT build. Not because I want to hide the fact it’s a Surly, but I’m feeling like with lots of shiny silver parts the bike could have a sweet classic low-key look if I removed all the decals. I would of course keep the Surly headtube badge to maintain its Surly identity, but in a subtle way that doesn’t scream out for attention.

I’ll wait until the very end of the build to decide, but that’s the way I am leaning at the moment…
