    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.
    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!
