Blood Red

The blood red cross check is a great color. Your bike looks really nice. That is a nice clean looking build. I would like to own that one. Thanks for posting a pic.

If I can get my **** together to take photos AND if I can figure out how to post them here, I'll post pix of my FOUR fixed Surlys (Steamroller, Crosscheck, 1x1, and Pacer with after purchase custom horizontal dropouts). Yes, 4. I like Surly, i like fixed gear, what can I say?

38 x 17

The 38 x 17 gearing is a nice choice. I have been playing around the sheldon brown gear inches calculator trying to come up with a good choice of gearing.

Xcheck

here's my fixed gear cross- check.



well shot is a little older. The bike now has mary bars and rear brakes for occasions when I have to use the freewheel flop side. Like last week when the chain dropped and ripped the rear cog apart.
