That bike is absolutely gorgeous! What a great bike!
I am so glad you posted it because I was looking to get a cross check and was thinking about the color. Thats one of the few I have seen in the color black.

What's the difference with the Brooks B17 Champion Special? I'm shopping for my preferred brooks saddle right now. Thanks.

You need black chainrings up front tho!

the champion special has brass rivets...they are supposed to not dig into you as much.

Yeah, I was thinking about switching to a compact road set up...so I will definetly try to find some black chainrings :D
Man, that looks so much like my road bike its eerie - mine's a black Surly Pacer, [black] Ritchey Pro seatpost and stem, black Brooks B17N, lil' bit a silver on the rims... made me do a double-take.

Needs more T.R parts.....maybe a T.R SwissCross frame...
Kidding, they are pink and f'ugly.
Nice bike. And I liked the S.C.C bike I saw in town yesterday, looked solid.
