    I am guessing that is a 2013 model. Does it have the strange offset still?

    Yes...it's a 2013 and still runs a rear hub in the offset front fork.

    This has got to be the oldest and longest lasting MTBR thread I've ever been a part of. Post pics of your Surly!!!

    An "Early Happy Birthday (Nov.5,2005)" to the Surly Board, and a definite "Happy Birthday to Raven", the same 1x1 frame I've had all these years.

    SS Cross Check in da house

    Just got this in Wednesday. Added my saddle, post, bars, King HS, levers and grips. Haven't figured out what pedals I'm going to use yet. Rides GREAT with the fat Conti tires.

    Looks great. It's a good idea for surly to offer the CC as a complete single speed. What sort of riding will yours see?

    Thanks buddy. It'll do everything from commuting, beer runs, lunch runs with my wife on her Pink Trek Earl, and general screwing around.

    I've had many CCs, always miss them when they're gone. I have a set of drop bars with tape and levers, and Canti brakes that can be put on in about 15 minutes in case I want to ride it that way. The beauty is in the versatility.

    That's a nice shot. I see that there is still some green where you are. I'm looking out my window at snow falling.

    Dude, that looks great. I really want to convert my CC back to SS and put an Open Bar on it. Probably the next day that it rains I'll do it. I might have to check out those tires.

    Thanks man

    The tires are the Continental Tour Ride 700X42s that come with the bike, and they ride quite nicely. They're the steel bead so pretty heavy, but cush.

    The one thing to note is the sizing. Anyone thinking of buying a SS flat bar or running flat bars on their current CC, you need a long stem to keep the cockpit from getting cramped going from drops to flat. I run a 56cm Cross Check normally and with drops it's perfect - with 100mm stem and risers it's pretty upright. If I'd gone with the 58cm to better match a MTB fit, it would be too long with drops, so it's a compromise of sorts.

    It must be getting close to winter because my CC grew racks and fenders.

    Hey,
    iam riding Surly since 4 years and just decided to replace my alu/carbon Crosser with this nice pice of steel. Nice fit, good feel. First i was concerned about to go with disc brakes, but finally i went with mini-v's and their are amzing with the newer shimano sti's.



    Regards from Germany,
    Michael


    ps: Nice black Karate Monkey!
    Regards,
    Michael

    That looks really good and fun. The interchangable single speed front wheel is a nice touch.

    Just kidding, it's a Pugsley fork. They are 135mm spaced and offset like the rear of th frame. This way you can swap the front wheel to the back in case something goes wrong with your transmission

    The gumwall tires are Challenge Grifo XS 33mm Cross Tires. The Brooks is the Imperial Standard in Honey. The bar tape is Adargo Leather Honey, and the bag is a Zimbale Honey (the Brooks bag is a bit too small). Here are the full specs on the dedicated thread I put up:

    Dumb life.

    I sold some stuff via the interweb and took it to UPS this morning. I then rode around the wet streets of PDX for a while.

    I'm hoping to do an overnight camping trip on the Clackamas River sometime within the next month and planning on using the Dummy. It's not that I'll be carrying a ton of stuff but I certainly won't have to worry about overpacking. It'll give me a chance to see how the Dummy feels over longer distances although I anticipate it'll be fine.

    Man, I really want to build a Dummy for taking the BBQ / chairs / etc to the beach in the summer. Ogre + trailer is a smarter move for now though.

    Awesome... I have never seen one in person, and did not know how they were built. That makes soo much sense. Good looking bike.

    Looks like you are set up for a long tour Gonenomad. Have you done any long tours on your troll yet? What handlebar and bar ends are you using and are you going to keep that set up for touring?

    Which happens to many people with Shimano M525 rear hubs. Avoid those things like the plague!!!

    What is the problem with the Deore hubs? I have been using them for commuting/ touring for a few years with no issue. I rebuild them once a year and they are good to go.
