They built the bike from the frame up. While in Coffs Harbour, Allister and staff at VENTOUX CYCLES (02 6651355) for heaps of help and taking time for a chat. The staff also passed on some valuable mechanical knowledge and helped pack the bike for air travel. The information I researched on the net from blogs and other sources led me to choosing the Surly LHT for this journey.
