    The tires look like WTB Nanos, correct? What size front chain ring? The bike looks great.

    My CC has flat bars and I really like. Surprisingly I like it more than the Open Bar I had on there for the past couple of years. I recently put some narrow, 666mm, Jones Bars on my BD and can't help but think they'd work well on the CC. The CC is too damn versatile!

    Yep, the Nano 40s. It's a 39t with an 11-28 cassette. Mostly a backroads bike, so I seldom spin out. With the SS wheelset it's 39x16.

    Thanks. My CC is singlespeed with Knards and 40/19. It's a little spun out but there's one ride I do that consist of a 4 mile dirt climb and the gearing is perfect.

    All my friends say my fav trails are too sandy and only fun because I ride them on my Krampus, so last night I brought out my Crosscheck and had a blast proving that some people wouldn't know a good time if it bit them on the ass.

    Oh, and I wasn't planning on hitting the trails so late and ended up walking back in the dark after killing my batteries taking sweet pics of my bike leaning against things.

    Cross Checks are fun in the dark. Nice to have the stability and durability when you outride your lights on dirt roads. Have to get my rides in early before the wife and daughter are up.

    This is exactly what I'm planning to do with my new Straggler frame. Nice to see that my idea work's! I'm planning to use 10sp shifter with 9sp rear derailleur and 10sp cassette with one speed missing. So basically same 9sp as a resut. Brakes will be hydraulic 160mm disc and bars chopped like yours.

    If you switch to friction mode, you can keep all 10 cogs. I'm running an 8spd shifter on a 9spd cassette.

    Love the look of that bike! I've got a new Cross Check SS incoming any day now--with flat bars like yours--can't wait!

    Just picked this baby up this morning. Brand new Cross Check SS, stock, for now.

    So far, I LOVE this bike.

    Only had time for about 45min on a bike path near the LBS but rides great! Looks killer too---the brown color is awesome in person (the pics don't do it justice).

    That's my baby, dubbed Clementine for some fairly obvious reasons, loaded up as we crossed the continental divide on my recent tour between Pittsburgh and DC. I was running Ortlieb Back Roller Classics as my panniers, a Revelate Tangle framebag to hold my camelbak and a magnetic attachment to secure it to my frame and a Jandd handlebar bag. The bike handled well and was very stable.

    Back to drops.

    I've had my CC for 9+ years and the majority of time it's had flat bars or upright bars of some kind. In 2012 I set it up with a 15degree 10cm stem and 46cm Cowbells. It felt okay but seemed a bit twitchy and I went back to a SS set-up with upright bars. This past Aug I set it up with a flat bar in anticipation of doing some cross races but it never got around to racing. I decided to give the Cowbells another chance with a longer stem, 110, with less rise, 7 degrees. I thought for sure it would be a mistake and I'd feel too stretched out and the bars too low but it actually feels great. I've actually given serious thought to picking up an another CC frame and building it up geared with parts I have laying around. I have pretty much everything I need. This bike is just too versatile!

    Got out for a ride today in Forest Park. After a record wet Dec here in Portland we're having a few days of clear skies but cold temps. It was pretty icy in the park but still a lot of fun.

    Sweet!

    What bag is that under your top tube?

    Looks just about the right size for all i need to bring around without messing with my water bottle placement.

    Yup, its a Revelate Tangle. I think its a Medium which is a great fit on 52cm Crosscheck. It usually carries about 1.75L in a bladder and some snacks, treats, and maps in the other pocket.

    Nope, I just like to go for long rides where I might need to carry 2+L. For really long rides I usually run a hose from the bladder to the handlebars and put a 1L Nalgene in the cage. If I don't need to carry a lot of water I'll still usually use the bladder and hose, but I'll keep a smaller bottle in the cage with sports drink.

    That night I just forgot my usual water stuff so I grabbed something from a gas station on the way there.

    I built up a CC early this spring, and it's seen several iterations since then. I was running Schwalbe Marathon Tour Plus tires for most of the summer, and ended up getting a set of Big Apple 29x2.0 late in the fall, which will likely be my go-to tire next year unless things are looking really muddy. Cross Check pics please-20151206_134607.jpg

    Currently running the winter setup with SKS Bluemels and Marathon Winter 29x2.0 studded tires. I was concerned about tire clearance and potential frame rub, but it hasn't been an issue despite me being plenty big enough to put some serious flex into the frame.Cross Check pics please-20160109_122047.jpg

    I also just acquired a set of 2015 Velocity Cliffhanger touring wheels, which will likely go on this weekend and should make a big difference for my tire profile after running high volume rubber on skinny little rims.

    Hi mate that's a nice setup, how do you find the Brooks pannier? I have been thinking of getting one.

    Thanks! The Brooks held up pretty well, tough fabric, waterproof and looks good. My only complaint has to do with the side closures, the strap buckle feeds through a tight loop in the fabric, makes the process for retrieving a simple item rather time consuming, especially if you live in cold climates and wear gloves. Not a deal breaker though, I would buy it again.

    I've said it before in this thread, it's like the CC is too damn versatile. Mine has probably gone through as many changes as yours Boogman. Currently it's set-up SS with drop bars. I've got enough parts laying around to put together a second one, something I was pondering just this morning. I'd love to just keep one as SS with a flat bar and build a second one with drops and gears. We'll see what happens...

    Sorta OT

    I don't see the CC's popularity diminished at all by the Straggler. IMO it's the opposite. The CC is still more than fit for the job whatever it may be.

    CC at the Columbia River Gorge.

    We've had a lot of rain the past couple of months so it was a pleasant surprise to see the sun out this morning. I dropped off my daughter at daycare and then headed out to Troutdale and did a ride along the old Columbia Hwy. I was on my CC which is SS but the gearing is perfect for this ride, especially for the climb back up to Crown Point. That said, I'm still thinking of adding a geared CC to the quiver.

    For anyone that's heard my rant on the Straggler over in that thread, one of my biggest complaints is that the dropouts don't work as well as the Cross-Checks.

    I don't think I'll own a Straggler any time soon. But I have zero qualms with a Cross- Check. I was seduced by discs. I still love discs, but I have V-brake bikes too. they all work well.

    I feel like getting a SS cross check, slapping on some knobbies. and just having fun with it in ways I can't with a 3,000 dollar Rando-Dork-Fredmobile. (My regular bike) Or a vintage bike (My other bike)

    It's been ages since I rode a cross check, but I remember being disappointed that my Straggler didn't ride like one (stiffer frame/ fork for discs?)

    [QUOTE=Agwan;12453563

    I feel like getting a SS cross check, slapping on some knobbies. and just having fun with it in ways I can't with a 3,000 dollar Rando-Dork-Fredmobile. (My regular bike) Or a vintage bike (My other bike)

    It's been ages since I rode a cross check, but I remember being disappointed that my Straggler didn't ride like one (stiffer frame/ fork for discs?)[/QUOTE]

    I say go for it. The complete SS spec is great. The Knards are great. If I were to put together a second CC, this one would definitely go back to flat bars and Knards. And who knows, maybe a 1x9 drive train.

    One think I favor about the CC over the Straggler is being able to run a fixed/free hub in the rear.

    This was the set-up on my CC about 9 years ago as a 1x9 with WTB Nanoraptors and V-brakes. The second picture is a more recent picture of it with flat bars and Knards.

    well... a lot of these were probably purchased before straggler came out..

    given the choice I would go with a straggler.

I was on my CC which is SS but the gearing is perfect for this ride, especially for the climb back up to Crown Point. That said, I'm still thinking of adding a geared CC to the quiver.
    Hi mate great view and nice set up on your CC. Looks a little hilly for me on a SS, I assume your legs are bigger than mine

    Currently running the winter setup with SKS Bluemels and Marathon Winter 29x2.0 studded tires. I was concerned about tire clearance and potential frame rub, but it hasn't been an issue despite me being plenty big enough to put some serious flex into the frame.Click image for larger version.

    I also just acquired a set of 2015 Velocity Cliffhanger touring wheels, which will likely go on this weekend and should make a big difference for my tire profile after running high volume rubber on skinny little rims.
    Hi mate they must be a tight fit, looks the business though.

Not a deal breaker though, I would buy it again.
    Thanks mate no cold here, thanks for you feedback.
