56cm Surly Cross Check

16 Dec

56cm Surly Cross Check in Robins Egg Blue. This frame and fork is lightly used and of course in Surly fashion it is built with 4130 cro-moly tubing and has all of the braze ons to mount fenders and racks that make this a very versatile commuter, cross ride, touring machine and daily rider. Listed below is a detailed description of components I used to build this machine up. This build is a far cry from the stock build and weighs in at 22 pounds with pedals and fenders.
