    Never seen one that didn't have down-tube shifter bosses either... and I've had access to QBP catalogs since about 98...

    No clue. I've been riding this thing since I was 16 and everything came from QBP as I worked at a shop.

    Sorry for the shadowy pictures, but here's my latest build. It's my errand runner, child puller, everyday riding kind of bike--the bike I ride most (which isn't much, lately).



    I'm really happy so far with the front bag. Very convenient loading and unloading, and when I pull my son on his tagalong bike, it won't interfere with that attachment the way a rear bag does. I'll need to figure something out for maps for overnighter trips, though.



    Next mod: converting the 11-34 9 speed rear cassette to an 11-34 8 speed cassette I just picked up. 8 speed makes for easier shifting with a friction thumb shifter.

    Off-Road Baguette Fetchín

    First time Iíve mounted the Baguette-Holster on the Cross-Check. Normally itís bungeed on a rack or front basket but it worked a treat up on the hoods.

    Thanks! I had the mustache bars sitting in the garage from a different build and decided to throw them on to see how they felt. I don't think I'll be doing any tours or single track on them, but they're great for cruising / commuting.

    I thought about mustache bars for my CC but need a bar that works for all types of terrain. Do your hands slide forward when riding rough-downhill/singletrack?

    My Cross Check. Bought it in November and have managed a few rides due to a mild Michigan winter. All stock besides the fenders but this thread has provided some great inspiration for upgrade ideas. I'm starting with different bars, a Brooks saddle and matching bar tape. This is a very fun bike. I love my mountain bike but this is all kinds of fun to ride.

    That's hilariously awesome. I used to carry around a cardboard tube for documents and whatnot, but I never thought to carry bread.

    The CC goes on tour...

    A couple of weeks ago my brother in law and I did a little tour from Charleston, SC to Jacksonville, FL. Our route ended up being a little under 300 miles, and we did it in four days.



    The Cross Check behaved like a champ! I found it to be very sturdy and stable when loaded down.

    It's a BBG bash guard sandwich. Works great.

    Nice. I have a BBG guard on one bike and it's well made. My next 1x9 setup might get the "sandwich".

    Stem Bell

    [QUOTE=e46junkie;8901563]Looks great! My frameset should be shipping out within the next few days I hope! What kind of bell is that and could you show a closeup?

    I can't remember!

    It is attached to a headset spacer, made of aluminium and doesnít sound as good as the brass ones but looks good and is out-of-the-way mounted like that.

    This is the closest shot I could find:

    CC w/Cowbell HB

    As much as I loved my CC with the Open Bar on it, I really wanted to try the Salsa Cowbell HB. I put them on yesterday and took a nice long ride out to Multnomah Falls at the Columbia River Gorge. The bars are great. I really like them. I got the 46s although they feel wider which is fine. I love the versatility of the CC. I really wouldn't mind having one set up with flat bars and as a SS and one with drops and set-up with gears. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled on CL as they do pop up from time to time. The Open Bars will be going on my LHT as I want to try them on that, seems like a good match.
