    Thanks! 700x38 Marathon Plus. 6,000 miles and not one flat.

    My latest addition, an entry level Sanyo dyno hub and Avenir light:



    I took a quick spin around the block tonight, and it puts out a decent amount of light. Certainly enough for riding at night, though I miss the ability to look around corners like I can with a helmet mounted light.

    Sure. No room for fenders with Beaver. Well, you can almost literally squeeze beavers and fenders, but there will be not enough mud clearance between fender and tire.

    Rear tire is Marathon Supreme 28x2.0 ( 46mm real width ). Beaver exist in only one size, 29x2.0. Width is exact 50mm on Salsa Delgado Cross, and fit is very tight in the fork, because of crown. If you use narrower rims, like 17mm inner width, there will be 1mm more space on each side.

    If you had to chose one bike... blah, blah, blah

    For the Zombie-Apocalypse I would choose my Pugsley but for your average post-war/mid-marriage/beginner-dad/world-tour/dirt-munching scenarios probably the Cross-Check.

    My fiancÚ and her Cross Check got hit by a car 4 months ago. One shoulder ligament repair surgery and a new fork later, here she is on her first ride back.

    After an altercation with a stop-sign-blowing Volkswagen. Bad picture from heat of the moment documentation. Front wheel tacoed. Haven't had time to really check for any frame damage. Other bits scratched and scuffed, with a shattered taillight. Fortunately no bodily injuries for either party! I put a good back-print in her hood though. Something to remember me by. Officer assisted in exchange of information. I'll be contacting her insurance provider.

    Here is how my CC currently sits (minus the sunshine)



    I am also off the bike after getting hit by a car in August, waiting on the shoulder to regrow. Good to hear the other car-bike folks are some amount of better.

    21.5 lbs isn't bad at all for a bike that's supposedly a heavy steel. Actually it's darn good.

    Wheelset from pregnant wife's bike + 29er tires = Monster Cross Check!

    Since my wife is too pregnant to ride her roadbike, I thought it would be a shame for her wheelset to go idle. Changing tires is such a PITA when I want to monstercross the CC. Fortunately, her wheels are built with gloriously beefy Mavic CXP22 rims just begging for big knobby tires. Turns out the CXP22's have the same width as the Mavic MA3's on my bike. Easy swap. I'm in business After the first ride, the road cassette that was on there made for steeper gearing than I prefer for offroad endevers. Thankfully, I had an 8 speed mountain cassette in the garage. Threw that on there and...perfection. Another easy swap thanks to the magic of friction shifting. The Cross Check is so versatile.

    Today I learned that the Cross Check's generous mud clearance has its limits.

    Yes, she is wonderful. I should have been clearer, that's my CC - I just stole her wheels to run knobby tires so I don't have to take the road tires off my normal wheels. Her bike is hanging, wheelless, in the shed. And no, she hasn't noticed yet. The new baby comes in Feb. I should be good as long as I have her bike back together before the weather warms up in the spring.

    Yup. That happened in all of ~30 feet of a construction site I had to cross between the bike park and a multi-use path.
