    thanks! the racks are quite old actually. the front is a specialized, and the rear is a blackburn. I had a 5' long slat of Brazilian cherry that ive been waiting to use for something special. also- its just a raw linseed oil finish.

    Anyone seen a Cross-Check with front disc brake and a multispeed internal hub? Thinking about building this...

    Nice! No issues with the chain coming off the front? Hard to tell but I think I see a jump stop or some inner deflector?

    I have just mounted the same tires with a Rohloff on my CC. They guy who laced them told me they would never fit, but there's (very little) room to spare.
    Magic carpet ride!

    Just installed a Rohloff installed. The torsion bar blends in fine, not too ugly and the shifter was installed via a custom spacer below the stem, allowing a drop bar.
    Very happy with it.

    What location in those rear dropouts is best for the rear wheel axle?

    Was always told best shifting happens when the axle is directly above the derailleur bolt hole. That's where I started when building my Cross Check, and have kept it there since. (Except for the times when it was single speed). But my 1x9 friction shifting might be more tolerant of non-optimal setup.

    At the base of an (in)famous local hill. Road feels like it gets damn near vertical after this point.

    Until I steal enough money for a KRAMPUS my 4-year-old Cross-Check is doubling as my geared mountainbike. It's pretty capable (and I love riding it) but I'd probably be better off with a Troll or Monkey as I gravitate towards dirt.

    Before and after, Ergon GC2 grips have cured my numb hand issues.

    And a La Cruz Disc Fork & BB7 because I live in a hilly area.

    after many stem/bar/drivetrain combos, this is the end result. Commuter duties, training bike, tourer, does the lot and i love it!

    Versatility

    Last weekend I was coming back from a mixed terrain ride on my CC and stopped by a cafe for some post ride coffee. I bike locked up out front caught my eye. It was a CC set up quite differently than mine (drops, gears, 32mm tires). I started talking with the owner, and like me, his CC has gone through multiple set-ups. You gotta love the CC versatility. I think the guy's name was Andrew. Here's his CC:

    I really like the looks of you bike. What size are those tires?


    Great Defender by the way
