Surly Cross Check Update 1

It has been almost a year side I got my Surly Cross Check. I'm posting some updated photos as I've made some changes to the bike (see the beginning of this set to see what it used to look like).


I now have a greater range of gears, I've gone from 12t-25t to 12t-36t. Of course that required a new Shimano XT rear derailleur.


I replaced the front wheel with a Peter White built wheel with a Shimano 3N72 Dynohub. The head light is a Lumotec N with a stainless steel toggle.


I've also added a Nitto M12 front rack (I think, although it seems to be missing some of the mounts the others have), a Velo Orange Campagne handlebar bag, Schwalbe Delta Cruiser HS 392 tires (700x35, Brown) and a new brass bell.

    Definitely one of the nicest cross checks I've seen. Good build.

    Very nice, how do you like the brown schwable's? I just picked up a couple year old brown cross check and will be doing some similar mods as I get used to it...

    Thanks. I like the Schwalbes a lot. The cream versions might look nice with a brown bike.
