Steel Commuter Bike That Can Do it All
There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but Cross-Check comes pretty damn close. It was a "gravel crusher" long before "gravel bikes" existed. Some people have even raced cyclocross on it.
Cross-Check was the first complete bike Surly offered. Since then, people have modified them hundreds of different ways to suit their riding styles and preferences.
- Semi-horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability
- Gnot-Rite dropout spacing allows installation of 130 and 135mm hubs
- Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders
- Clearance for 700c x 42mm tires with or without fenders
