    Hey Evandy,

    Can you post a few close up photos of your head light mount. (eg How you got around the brake cables.)
    thanks,
    Charlie

    2007 Cross Check

    I've enjoyed viewing everybody's photos, so here are a few of mine.
    Specs can be found by clicking the photos.

    Thanks Two. They are both constant works in progress.

    Sure. It still needs a little bit of fiddling, but has been pretty solid so far.
    I used a 75mm M6 bolt (no hex-cap at the hardware store at this length)
    Threaded on it, in order:
    M6 Washer, Luxos B Standard Mount, M6 Washer, Stainless 1/4x1/2 spacer, M6 Washer, Fender L bracket, Fork, Nylon Locknut.

    I have a 1/4x3/4" spacer which I may use to extend things a touch, but first I need a longer bolt and my local stores only carry up to 75mm stock. So I may special order an 80mm or 90mm M6 bolt from McMaster or somewhere to finish it up. Can't decide whether to leave it as a normal bolt head, or get a hexcap.

    All of this to avoid spending $6 on the official canti-mount that Luxos makes. Peter white has it. P/N B&M475DUPB.



    And from the front:

    neither 2013 cross check color seems capable of being accurately photographed. I sware they do this on purpose.

    Thanks. I like the color too. Surly calls it "Misty Mountain Gray" which always reminds me of the Zeppelin song.

    I'm having a flashback.
    1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1992 Stumpjumpers. 1995 Waterford 1200, 1999 Waterford RSE, plus a garage full of steel frames.

    Some shouldn't be photographed at all like that dreadful "beef gravy brown" a few years ago. WTF were they thinking? Apologies if you own one...but ugly is as ugly dose.
    You are right about a lack of photos that depict an accurate representation for the dark dirty blue cross check. This forum is about it on the net.

    Well, I like most of their hideous colors... and the hospital foam is growing on me...

    but honestly, I've seen the brown, robins egg and even the pacer's blue and KM's grey in person...

    somehow, every single camera ever thinks these bikes are different colors. only way to really know is to see it in person.

    Or buy black.

    Oh wow. My cable pull is much lower, directly infront of the fork hole. I need to change mine similar to yours as that would give me many more options for mounting a light in that spot.
    thanks.

    If your yoke is that low, you do have two options right now. You can get the B&M canti mount that I linked to. Alternatively, you can run the down wire directly through the center of the headlight mount.

    I used to think so too, but it did grow on me. It's a cool color in the flesh.

    My frame finally arrived! Finished it today. I will cut the forktube later and install a shorter stem.

    I like the Crosschecks in all the colors because everyone does really interesting things that make them unique.

    A very lively color scheme. Green looks good!

    The white pulls it all together........Did I just say that??? ...............How about those Packers?

    The bike does look great! It just sounded kinda feminine.

    In your opinion. To others it's perfect. If they were still offered I would have ordered it over the new blue.

    Has anyone used either of the Brooks browns with the Dark Dirty Blue?

    No, but I have used the Brooks black with the Blark Due. Looks great. Having lived with the frame for a bit, I don't see any reason that the browns wouldn't look OK too.
