Here is my first cross build, I basically started with the frame, 56cm Miyata AlumiCross that was originally built in 1989.  Copy and paste this to check out the original bike.

It has been stripped and rebuilt with all lightly used parts from a 2008 Surly Crosscheck.  This includes the Shimano Deore Wheel set, with new Panaracer 700×32 Crossfire tires, Tektro Oryx canti brakes with the Tektro brake pulls, Shimano bar end shifters with Tiagra front and rear derailers and a 9 speed Tiagra cluster. Pedals are Shimano 600 NOS with cages and straps. New Tange headset, new Chromo forks, Stem is 4 bolt Ritchey Pro at 100mm and a pair of Specialized drop bars with new Zebra bar wrap, seat is a Bontrager RL white and black which is the color scheme of the entire bike. Just rolled her off the rack for her maiden voyage and she is riding like a dream, super smooth and clean. Would make a great commuter as there is lots of brazeons and room for fenders and racks.
