    Possible stolen Surly Cross Check

    Came across this:

    Surly Cross Check

    Red flags:

    Neck: Cane Creek - Neck? Really?
    Tires: Kendra - somebody likes crap TV, but could be a typo

    Pass this one around...maybe they are selling for a friend. Never do know anymore...

    Looks like the biggest "red flag" is the frame color.

    Nice bike, btw. :-)

    I will, but you should have PM'd me and I would have deleted it. Instead you dinged my rep. I have no idea why it bugs me so much, the rep thing. Maybe because it is cowardly and stupid, since it is anonymous. But I know it is you.

    Honestly, neck? WTF is a neck?! Do you know anything about bikes? Certainly you can understand that this looks like a sale by someone who does not know anything about bikes. Try headset next time...

    Sorry about trying to help. I hope you don't ever post about a stolen bike...

    This forums sucks balls...as do all the jerks like you on it...

    Hey snigs, not everyone knows everything about bikes. Some people just like to ride them.

    :pen mouth:: ::insert foot::

    Also, don't get worked up about anonymous words on the internet. Especially, when you're the one making the gross assumptions.

    Neck is an old timey name for a stem. Still wrong, but I can see where the confusion could arise.

    Ding your rep??? I don't even know to do that. I am sorry that I hurt your feelings. I know you were only trying to be helpful. You should ask the moderator to delete this thread b/c it's starting to get weird.

    that's not very neighborly of you now, is it?

    now take your toys and go play elsewhere, it's painfully obvious that's what you need to do

    maybe a move back to the east will be good for you, where humourless dolts abound
