    Really nice! I am planning much the same with my cross check, only with the brown Brooks instead of honey.

    That'll be nice, post photos when you do it.

    We have the Brown B17's and Brown tape in stock, give me a call if you want to get it ordered up! (See sig)

    Hi Addam, very nice modern-old-fashioned look (gee, is the expression correct ?) CC you have.. especially that shifters on down tube make the handle bar simple. I'd like to have on designing my CC.Is it a new product (i mean not an old model) ? what brand ? Does it use indexing as common shifter today ? n Does it work with 9 speed mtb cassette ? Thanks.

    hey huka...the ones Adam has are Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters
    I have those in my Pugsley with a 9 speed Deore XT RD....sweet shifting!

    for my Pacer I choose these


    both exist in 8, 9 and 10 speed versions

    Thx a lot Martin, but is down tube shifter and bar end shifter are the same thing ? or bar end shifter can be used as down tube shifter ? sorry I'm not familiar with road bike things...
    Btw do your Pugsley use XT RD with XT cassette ? and how about the FD, do you use XT FD too ? I really want to know whether these Dura Ace down tube shifters are compatible with Shimano MTB drivetrain and deraileur..

    hey huka, don't worry..-I was in your position in terms of these shifters when building my pugs..

    DT or BE shift the same, but the looks is different ... FD shifter is friction only so it'll work with double or triple..RD Shifters can be friction or indexed...in indexed fashion it i'll work with any shimano RD...as far as I know the sis is equal in MTB or Road Drivetrains.

    my pugs has a Sram cassette...can I have a smoother shifting with a Shimano? I don't think so.
    btw I'm using Paul Comps Thumbies in my Pugs

    I like what you did. Little changes but I like it a lot better than before.

    First pics of the build in process....still need to put on the black Brooks B67 springer and tidy up the cables, etc.

    The bike has Michelin 32c City tires on standard rims in this pic. I also have some 40c cross tires mounted on A719s.

    state of the cross check

    really diggin where this bike is at right now. it's my vehicle of choice most of the time.
    current state of the cross check - jan 2011



    recent and semi recent changes/adds:
    avid digit 7 vbrakes
    cane creek vdrop levers (black)
    xtr brake cable kit
    alfine/dyad front generator wheel
    home brew dyno led light
    busch and muller toplight line plus (rear dyno light)
    panaracer pasela 27mm tires (feel almost as smooth as the 38mm contacts i use to ride, but much much faster)
    on one gary bars (dirt drops, totally love them)
    sram super light tape (still on the fence about it, but it is very gripy, but also rubbery)
    thomson seatpost (came with another bike i bought used)
    swing grip (want to lose this, but it works great)

    what i want to try/will need next (some things i won't need for a while):
    new rear wheel to match front wheel with xt hub and dyad rim
    revised dyno light that incorporates all circuit into housing and mount using fork crown
    koolstop salmon pads
    new chain, cassette
    new crankset (maybe slx, not sure about that one yet)
    homebrew bags (framebag, "gas tank")
    revelate seatbag (or i might try to make one)
    gps (leaning toward the garmin vista hcx)
    aerobars for long ass rides
    strip all paint from frame and go with clear coat
    different fenders
    might try some big 29er tires like panaracer firecross

    it's taken a while, but i have everything set up just right, and it's a great balance of speed and comfort. the drivetrain is getting old, but it's still going strong (stock from an LHT). the dyno system and vbrakes were huge upgrades to me. something about the generator hub just makes it feel like a much more real transportation machine. and the new brakes stop me so much better and feel so smooth. i really enjoy the peripheral projects and mini upgrades here and there.

    new schmidt dynohub & light





    I am commuting in dusk both ways right now so it's not as crucial as it would have been 1-2 months ago (when I was using a niterider minewt) but it is, well, it's darn cool that's for sure.
