    Nice. I will be hopefully moving to AZ in the next several months. For now, I live in Chicago, and this morning I wore liner shorts, leg warmers, knicker-type pants, jersey, arm-warmers and a smartwool mid-weight long-sleeve under a light jacket. Also toe-covers, thick fleece gloves and a fleece earband under my helmet.

    Not quite cold enough for the heavy jacket and neck gaiter, but it will be soon.

    You'll fit right in. Everyone here (except me) is from IL, MN, or WI.

    I moved here in June and I absolutely love it. Of course, that's much easier to say now that the highs are 72 instead of 122 (saw that twice this year).

    Oh, and so I am not trolling on the best thread on MTBR...

    Here's Shirley the Surly and my Kona before Saturday's mountain race and Sunday's road race (which I won, thanks for the conditions being perfect for a cross bike and not a dainty 14 pound rig, lol)



    (There's also another Kona and a 1x1 in this pic for more Surly pron.)

    Congratulations on the win! I raced CX for the first time a week and a half ago, tons of fun. I got to the starting line well after the race started, but I still managed to catch a few guys.

    Finally got to 10 posts, so here's my nearly 4 year old Crosscheck, ridden all around, up and over Chicago and Wisconsin.

    This is how it usually looks:



    I stripped it down and threw on some knobbies for the race. Lots of fun, but way too slow for commuting, so it's back to the "skinny" tires.





    Back when it was new and shiny, I rode it as a fixed-gear.

    Very nice bike! What kind of knobbies are those?

    My race wasn't a cyclocross race, but a real road race. But it was raining and muddy, so I had the advantage.

    Ironically, the only cyclocross races I have done were on my drop bar single speed karate monkey... lol

    Shirley (my CrossCheck) will be able to have a go weekend after this in my first Arizona CC race.

    Seriously, I love your tires. I do wish Shirley was black. But I fell for the doo doo brown.

    Thanks! You have some nice bikes there. I actually thought I would have done better on my single-speed mountain bike, just because I can corner much better on it. Shirley huh? Mine is Betty, as in Black Betty (bam-ba-lam) The tires are some NOS Specialized TriCross tires I got for like $5. The only info I was able to find on them is that they were discontinued in 1994! But the sidewalls are still fine, no cracking, though the rubber is getting dry around the bead.

    The doo-doo brown is nice too, although I would love to have gotten the robin's egg blue. Black does make it easy to coordinate parts though.

    I just like the brown sidewalls. Those would look sick on my doo doo brown bike.

    Not much of an advantage to having the front rack other than I like the way it looks. I also have a rear rack, but I like the front Surly Nice Rack better if I'm just going to have one.

    Like I said, I use the Cross Check for some mid-level single track a couple days a week, so I prefer only having one rack so I can take on / off the bike quickly.

    Some great new additions to this thread. I really dig those gum wall knobbies!

    Thanks! They'll soon be making an appearance on my Ogre build, which I can only assume is crossing the ocean in a steel container or maybe still just tubes in a warehouse at this point.

    Surly Cross Check with Disc Fork

    Had the cross check forever.
    Hit by a car, bent front fork.
    Decided to try doing what I wanted to do for like, forever -- add a disc front fork.
    Outside the spirit of the cross check or not, please don't give me that bs, they're just bikes.

    I really like the disc up front so far. Cantis are wonderful, and so are the cross check forks. The bike would still have the CS fork if not for the accident. The downside (to some, and me) is that you lose some tire clearance and fenders don't fit as easily. For a commuter, do-everything, it's been a fun change. Haven't taken the fork off-road, yet.

    I have a set of 29x1.8, but don't know if they'll fit. I forget the salsa spec on tire clearance.

    Anyhow, just thought it might be of some interest.

    Salsa La Cruz disc fork
    BB7 Road Caliper
    XT disc hubs
    Velocity Dyad front rim.

    Well, I built my cross check up with mostly craigslist bargain parts and a few new odds and ends from my LBS. At least I'm riding again. Two hours on the road today, hopefully some more seat time tomorrow.

    I ordered a 7 spd cassette, 9 is too many. May still be back to just 1 before the new
    year of commuting commences in January.

    Those are cascadia fenders, ostensibly, but the mudflaps have torn off over 3 years of
    misuse.

    Yeah, I've been running a 9 speed lately on my mine. Kind of picky with friction shifting, but I like the 34t low gear on it. Still, I might go back to 8 speed at some point in the future. To me, 8 spd was the best balance between easy shifting and setup and lots of gear choices.

    I need to get a picture up of my latest setup, but I'll just describe it for now:

    - flat bars and bar ends
    - 2x9, but with a manual front shift (34t ring for pulling the kids around, 40t ring for riding solo)
    - V brakes (so nice after cantis)
    - front rack with a Carradice saddle bag up front. Man, it's convenient having a front load. Plus, using the trail-a-bike precludes having a saddlebag on the rear.

    Pics soon...

    ^^That looks fantastic!^^
    You should order the decals like I did.
    It will look like you custom ordered your surly cross check.

    I have a decal set (but its for the new one). I put the head tube badge on that's good enough.

    Here are some pics before the transfer. After 10+ years the paint was falling off.

    Never seen one that didn't have down-tube shifter bosses either... and I've had access to QBP catalogs since about 98...

    Sorry for the shadowy pictures, but here's my latest build. It's my errand runner, child puller, everyday riding kind of bike--the bike I ride most (which isn't much, lately).



    I'm really happy so far with the front bag. Very convenient loading and unloading, and when I pull my son on his tagalong bike, it won't interfere with that attachment the way a rear bag does. I'll need to figure something out for maps for overnighter trips, though.



    Next mod: converting the 11-34 9 speed rear cassette to an 11-34 8 speed cassette I just picked up. 8 speed makes for easier shifting with a friction thumb shifter.

    Off-Road Baguette Fetchín

    First time Iíve mounted the Baguette-Holster on the Cross-Check. Normally itís bungeed on a rack or front basket but it worked a treat up on the hoods.

    Thanks! I had the mustache bars sitting in the garage from a different build and decided to throw them on to see how they felt. I don't think I'll be doing any tours or single track on them, but they're great for cruising / commuting.

    I thought about mustache bars for my CC but need a bar that works for all types of terrain. Do your hands slide forward when riding rough-downhill/singletrack?

    My Cross Check. Bought it in November and have managed a few rides due to a mild Michigan winter. All stock besides the fenders but this thread has provided some great inspiration for upgrade ideas. I'm starting with different bars, a Brooks saddle and matching bar tape. This is a very fun bike. I love my mountain bike but this is all kinds of fun to ride.

    That's hilariously awesome. I used to carry around a cardboard tube for documents and whatnot, but I never thought to carry bread.

    The CC goes on tour...

    A couple of weeks ago my brother in law and I did a little tour from Charleston, SC to Jacksonville, FL. Our route ended up being a little under 300 miles, and we did it in four days.



    The Cross Check behaved like a champ! I found it to be very sturdy and stable when loaded down.

    Nice. I have a BBG guard on one bike and it's well made. My next 1x9 setup might get the "sandwich".

    Stem Bell

    [QUOTE=e46junkie;8901563]Looks great! My frameset should be shipping out within the next few days I hope! What kind of bell is that and could you show a closeup?

    I can't remember!

    It is attached to a headset spacer, made of aluminium and doesnít sound as good as the brass ones but looks good and is out-of-the-way mounted like that.

    This is the closest shot I could find:

    CC w/Cowbell HB

    As much as I loved my CC with the Open Bar on it, I really wanted to try the Salsa Cowbell HB. I put them on yesterday and took a nice long ride out to Multnomah Falls at the Columbia River Gorge. The bars are great. I really like them. I got the 46s although they feel wider which is fine. I love the versatility of the CC. I really wouldn't mind having one set up with flat bars and as a SS and one with drops and set-up with gears. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled on CL as they do pop up from time to time. The Open Bars will be going on my LHT as I want to try them on that, seems like a good match.

    Finally put my Cross-check back together after I had it modded with a rear disc tab, Salsa fork and brand new paint job. Still tweaking the ride a little, just installed a 180mm front rotor (overkill for sure but I want to be able to convert my Troll to a 29er with just a tire swap using the cross-checks wheels) and waiting on some wider fenders.

    Thanks- i had some time this fall/winter thanks to a knee surgery so figured "hey what the hell, why not?" and pulled the trigger on the project. Waltworks in Boulder, CO did the rear disc tab (along with 2 cable guides) for me and a local autobody shop painted the frame and fork.

    Love the ride, got over 3200 miles on it in just over 1.5 years of having it. Looking forward to many more miles on the Check.

    my cc together finally!

    Wrong size sent originally from seller, finally squared away a 56 -what I was originally after. If anyone is looking for a 54 FS in black let me know.

    I set this one up as a 1x5... will have to take some better pics again soon.

    My setup, FSA slk light Triple crank, Campagnolo Centaur front and Comp triple rear. Campy 11-29 cassette Campy veloce shifters. Avid shortys and Campy Khamsin CX wheels. I use it for everything except high-speed road riding, going for fun in the mud on trails, riding to work and this summer some light touring hopefully.

    But nice bike, anyway

    I'm not sure about it because it's uncomfortable right now, but yeah should have gone black... wonder what honey leather tape would look like with this setup?

    I went with the RX6 brakes which are taller than the mini v... did not want cantis after my last experience - these are so easy to fine tune! I thought the full v brakes would look too tall on this setup.

    Hope to take it on a 20 miler tomorrow - have only got about 10 miles on her so far, but rides really nice!

    Here's mine.

    Standard issue retro-grouchy parts: Shimano barcons and 105 derailers. Nitto Rando bars. Sugino crankset. Brooks B17. Panaracer Paselas. Nothing special, but lots of fun to ride.

    And I love that little Nashbar front rack. Its just big enough to strap an extra jacket or gym bag or whatever without being too heavy or cumbersome.

    Eventually I'll add some fancy bartape, maybe red or orange. Or leather to match the saddle. And it'd look really nice with a canvas saddlebag.

    Finished last night

    Stock Cross check. Added Bontrager fenders, rimskins from rimSkin - Customize Your Bicycle Wheels Including Deep V Rims With Reflective, Metallic, Specialty & Solid rimSkins and rear rack. Lots of reflective bits as I plan to commute several days a week, rain or shine, light or dark.

    This is Molly

    Hi, that's my first post in these forums and I wanted to share with you some pics of my Cros Check named Molly. I have finished the project before 15 days and I'm still working on small adjustments. It's not like most of Cross Checks with drops etc. It has Surly Torsion Bar, Alfine 8, Crow's Foot lacing in both wheels and Guinness caps on the small T-Bar!

    Enjoy

    too bad, the bikini gal is hot!

    Is that a magic 8 ball above the T-bar? Not a bad way to decide a route.....

    Fun looking bike btw.

    We donít really have cyclocross in New Zealand but my Cross-Check probably sees more singletrack than my mountainbike (Pugsley)

    hangín with the MTBs 65km into a 100km [epic] off-road ride:

    Doubletrack leading to my local singletrack:

    Lost in the mud trying to find singletrack:

    Got mine in roadie mode

    Put on some skinny 25mm tires, a 53t big ring, a longer 100mm stem, and even a basic bike computer and saddle pack. Let the road rides begin!

    You may have inspired me!!! What stem is that on your Cross Check? and how does it handle with the mountain bikes when the trails get tight on the switch backs? I road a multi-use trail the other day that was really tight and I can say that me and my Surly are not as nimble and graceful in those turns as me and my Santa Cruz.

    2001 Bean Green Cross Check 8/10 condition cosmetically with a well used drivetrain. Some cheap plastic fenders and mis-matched 105 STI shifters. Wheels are tru but are not pretty.

    Guy wants $675...what would you offer?
    Assuming the shifters are solid 9 speed, $600. Take the asking price, subtract the amount needed to restore to 100% operational and give an offer to them.

    Seeing as how I got mine brand new last spring for $900 and this one is 11 years old, I would probably lo-ball him closer to $525. When I shopped around for a use one I saw them going for $600-800, so I started looking around for last seasons bikes at some LBS and I found a few for under $1000.

    I'd prefer a steep rised stem to 4 inches of spacers with a zero degree

    Steep, high stem makes the bars that many of us use comfortable and useful in all hand positions. Additionally many of us make no effort to look or ride like racers on our cross checks.

    Thanks! I was gifted the Origin-8 Gary bars a year or so ago, and knew that I would like them but just now got the right stem for the job. When people say to get the bars around saddle height for comfort, 'dem folks isn't kiddin'. I'm going to look for a stem to get the bars about an inch higher yet. Wishing that I hadn't chopped the steerer tube. "Dirt Drops" are a reccomended set up.

    I primarily ride a track bike with a very aggressive stance.

    The Cross Check is my cruiser, homie. Not too concerned about having an agro riding position while riding to get beer.

    Also, I'm 80.

    I guess I'm just used to using my crosscheck as a proper cross bike and not as a commuter or tourer like most of the people posting in here as of late.

    I can't believe anyone here would consider using a bike for anything other than its designed purpose. Surly would be ashamed.
