    Just got mine dialed in..

    and I'm lovin' it! 105/Ultegra with Salsa Delgado/105 36's, Salsa Short and Shallow bar, Schwalbe Marathons. Running Single Digit 3's, to make sure I can stop my fat a$$. So much fun, it makes me pause when trying to decide which to take out, the CC or the Dos Niner!

    Here's mine. Gets ridden more than my other bikes... 4 years old and going strong.





    Mine's a 62cm 2006 model (dark metallic green).

    Thanks! Those are 2008 Mavic Aksiums. Quite heavy, but really strong. After two years, multiple trips with heavy gear and lots of miles I still haven't had to true them.

    Love it. I generally ride a 56 but from what I can see in a CC a 54 should fit. Can you tell me the standover height on that beast? Did you use individual spacers or a single piece of tubing? Great job.

    Just picked my brand new 62cm Cross Check yesterday and took it for a spin. I think I just found a new best friend. Rides great everywhere, but I feel like it was made to muck about in the dirt. Overall, not the slightest bit disappointed.

    On the road...


    And in it's native habitat...

    Out on an extended commute this morning on my new CC.

    Super nice.

    New B17 Special Honey, matching bar tape, standard spec plus SKS P45 in silver and new Candy 3's from Crank Brothers.
    It's a 52cm.

    Next thing to add is an Ortlieb Ultimate 5 Plus Bar Bag.... maybe today....

    One down, one to go...

    years, that is, for the OP.

    My X-Czech ala Road Rocket. 1x8 here. Also does time as SS/fixed/monstercross single and 1x8 - more pics to come as it gets shifted around.

    Turned out better than I had imagined.

    here's my 2008 Cross Check I just picked up...

    I've been wanting a Surly for a while now, and found this guy on the local Austin craigslist for a great deal. Not a scratch on it from the original owner, I believe he rode it once or twice, then kept it in his garage hanging on the wall since then. Amazing ride for Austin city streets, love it.

    52cm Cross Check

    Very happy with mine. Basically still the stock version as per website except for Salsa SUL, a new saddle (Planet X) and I've swapped out the oryx cantis for some mini Vs.

    Thinking of going to full size Vs with a change in levers but not totally sure. With 2 punctures in 500 miles, the Ritchey tyres might have to go in favour of something beefier.

    Next major upgrade will be the crankset and BB. Any ideas? MTB or Road?

    Almost stock 58cm. Big tires make for a cushy ride, and I'm loving the mustache bars. Left the reflectors on for commuter duty.

    How do you like those 700x50 supremes? I tried 700x40s but they were too much to push (FG). I do roll 26x2.0 big apples on my LHT though.
