Gallery: Brandon’s 2009 Surly Cross Check

Here are a few pictures of my 2009 Surly Cross Check. I use this bike for my short 3 mile work commute, errand running, taking the dog out for runs, looking for treasures on recycling night, and for cruisin’ around Allentown, Pennsylvania. Some notable details include: Acorn bags, Brooks B17, XT derailleurs (low normal/reverse rear der.), MKS touring pedals, Nitto rando bars… and so on. —Brandon

    Nice ride. I’ve just built up a Cross-Check too. Great fun on and off-road.

    Even though mine doubles as my geared-mountainbike I tried to use silver components for a slightly classic vibe. It’s not easy finding silver stuff I tell you, especially in New Zealand!

    Brandon,
    Nice build up on your cross check. Mine was to become an off road ss when I added a fixed gear and it has remained that. I love the relaxed geometry and comfortable steel ride. -Jim

    A little late to the game, but if you get this… Do you like the Rando bars? I have been thinking of a set for my CxC. I like the Acorn burrito bag, I guess they don’t make it any more :(

    Very nice bike. I also own a Cross-Check with all custom parts that looks very similar to yours except that its equipped with bullhorn handle bars and Ostrich bags I bought though Velo Orange.
