It's not as ninja a bike as it would seem from the pix. I just haven't recieved my 3M black Scotchlite reflective tape to do all the pinstriping yet.
It's a Surly Cross Check complete, stock with the following modifications:
- the B17 saddle, front rack, Superflash blinkies, L&M Solo light, and computer from my old commuter.
- SKS P35 fenders (with full length mudflaps that have the shop's logo on them, die cut out of a full sheet of reflective material. Pretty slick, and they're good to me at the shop so I don't mind being a billboard for them.)
- Conti Ultra Gatorskin 700 x 28 tires
- Dimension steel bottle cages (and the shop gets more free advertising because they threw in a couple of 750mL bottles with the shop logo.
I've gotta give credit to Rick at Sammamish Valley Cycle for his hard work in doing my Serotta fit, going over frame and component specs with me for hours, and then putting everything together so magnificently today.
