    Thanks, I'm running the stock Sram Force brakeset on my Pacer. No problems at all. The only down side is that the brake body comes down just a bit farther than the frame/fork so when installing fenders there is not much space. I would go with different brakes if you were going to use fenders often.

Probably a little too much work for a CC when there are other great disc cross frames out there, but I really wanted a CC frame with disc, so we had some fun with it.

    My answer to a disc brake cross check. This large 2010 1x1 will fit 29er tires and 700x45 tires with ease. Currently running Panaracer 700x32 street rubber which makes this bike a blast. With all the lights this bike weighs 23lbs.

    Thanks a lot
    I dont plan to put on a fender anyway...
    Now, I'm confident that my ultegra sl brake lying around would fit too...

    this ^ definitely- nice, light bike
    out of curiosity, what kind of hub are you running on the back? also, did you have to modify the tug, or use a different axle bolt?

    No mods. I used a Hope Pro 2 single-speed bolt on rear hub. Can remove the rear wheel without loosening the disc brake adapter with these bolt on hubs real easy. Zero dish rear wheel and steel freehub body is bulletproof. Standard Surly chain tug with 42x16 gearing. I swap out on occasion some Panaracer 700x45 fire cross tires for off road action. Very versatile bike, some 650B wheels are in the future for fun.

    My Surly Crosscheck in post race mode. 38/18 gearing. I don't really race it in CX events (they're aren't many in Australia), but more in endurance events.
    The bars are Ragley Luxy. Very wide and plenty comfortable for a long day in the saddle.

    Another disc only Cross-Check to add to the pile. Mine's a 2010, originally black frame set that I put over 3100 miles on in just over a years worth of riding. The disc conversion was on my mind for a while and a recent knee surgery seemed like an ideal time to make the jump to discs on the road. Waltworks did the frame mods and a local body shop painted it for me, the brakes and last few parts for the conversion will be on the way over the next 3 weeks. By the time I'm allowed back on the bike the Check should be fully functional and ready to tear up the pavement once more.

    Bought this as a used frameset on craigslist. Built it up with old road components off of a parts bike
    also off of craigslist. Anyway, I'll improve and modify as I go.

    Damn Steelnwool! Your LHT looks great with the beefy tires. Definitely angle the Open Bars. I loved them on my CC.

    Those are Schwalbe Marathon Extremes. Great on almost any surface.

    I just turned my bars and they are much more comfy now. Thats twice in 2 days that a small angle change made my life better. Yesterday it was snowboard bindings, today it was this

    Thanks! The Ardents are pretty big. Not fat bike big, but solid for fat bike lite.
    It is not one of the 2012s, with the extra mounts, etc. I believe it is a 2011.

    I think it looks great, probably a little bit of an illusion with the fenders on there too.

    Here's my Ogre, what's there to say? Its green, has a brown seat and lots of other black stuff. I haven't gotten all set up yet, but the rides have been great so far...

    "Effin" fun to ride! Thanks for the comp!

    What are those big blocks your CC is parked in front of? They're pretty cool.

    Are your front and rear rack surly? I don't recognize the rear.

    Love the look of your Ogre. That color is almost enough to swing me from purchasing a Karate Monkey to the Ogre. I don't think I'll ever use all those mounts on the rear though.

    Just a big wall around the Indianapolis Zoo. There's a nice little path that goes around the outside.

    The front rack is a Surly Nice, but the rear is a Topeak Super Tourist. It's a great rack- especially for the money.

    Sounds like we had similar conversations with ourselves, I too was looking at a KM until I saw the Ogre in the shop. Same bike, only with options. I paid $53 more for the Ogre than the KM. I've put button head M5 bolts in all of the braze on mounts I'm not currently using just to keep the crud out. I also liked the color of the Ogre over what was offered in the KM (currently black or grey). Good luck, either one would be a fine choice.

    Stripped the fenders and rack off the Cross Check and put the knobbies back on. Ready for the trails to dry out.

    Love how versatile the CrossCheck is! I liked how your ride looked with the fenders and front/rear racks but it looks right badass with the knobbies - did you say those are 29 x 1.9s? Are those Karmas?

    Gots me a XCheck myself decked out remarkably similar to yours. I originally routed the shift cable traditionally, just like you did, out from under the bar-end looped down to the downtube stop. For kicks, I tried routing it under the tape up alongside the brake cable and out by the stem and found I prefered it that way because it looked cleaner. I needed to use a longer bit of housing and re-tape the bar, but I didn't even have to re-adjust the derailleur. That's one of the advantages of those bar-end shifters: they're so simple and precise, another bend in the cable doesn't even faze 'em.

    Anyways, I hope your trails are rideable soon. Your bike definitely looks ready to go!

    Thanks! They're great bikes, that's for sure. I go back and forth on whether I like the bar end shifters. I think I'm just going to go single speed soon and be done with them all together

    A months riding now on the Moonlander and i am loving riding this bike on the coast, quite differant than my pugsley, better on the soft sand and loose pebbles, smoother ride, not so good on the road and tight single track
    Amazing SPACE paint and well made rims and cranks, loving the thumbies too
    Added a rear Hope hub, swapped bars and stem and did a few personal touches

    All those surlys make me want another. I've really been considering a SS dropbar Monkey, but I feel like its so close to my Cross Check, it would be a waste. Bah.

    Wow, talk about flashbacks! I was the west coast rep for Kirtland from 1979 to 1983 or so. Sweet to see them in use!

    Those paniers have been great, they probably have 12000 miles on them. They've been all over, from Canada to Mexico. I used to live near Boulder, they were an obvious choice back in the day. Its a small world.

    Yeah, sometimes too small!. With good and bad results, but i digress.

    I just recently got back in touch with one of the two brothers who owned Hine/Kirtland. I'll pass your photo on to him, he will be pleased to hear they have stood up to that use through the years. Those were some of the last Made in USA products before the big offshore manufacturing push changed the outdoor products world forever. Not necessarily bad, I should add, but changed dramatically, and changed the lives of us deeply involved in it.

    Thanks for the follow up information.

    Nice ride Mike. Careful, that green paint all but disappears in the woods. Should be interesting using aero-bars on single track! Just kidding. It'll be a good ride to work. Have fun.

    Yeah, the aero bars are tricky in the woods. Bike handles very well on single track though. I noticed how quickly the bike blends though, my have to get an orange flag for the back

    Even though I am extremely happy with my Troll build, I do think a Cross Check is my next bike... Damn nice CCs on here folks!

    Last picture of the Cross Check in this state. I missed having the fenders and racks, so the CC is going back to full time commuting / bike camping duty.




    To pick up the slack, I am now the proud owner of a Battleship Gray 2012 Karate Monkey. I pick it up from the LBS on Thurs.

    Mostly commuter with hopes of some overnights and bikepacking. I have as second set of wheels with 2.3 exiwolfs for the bikepacking option. 15 miles one way commute, mostly back country roads and have to carry all work clothes and lunch which is the main reason I wanted the Ogre. Able to carry the weight and has the riding position I prefer. Plus do some singletrack when the option comes my way

    Very nice ride. I do like that light blue. I had a sailboat that was that color, she was a beauty. The rack looks good too. Nice lines!
