Yesterday, I got to take out the first bike I built myself. It's a Surly Cross Check. I bought it as a frameset and had the BB faced and chased. I put a Cane Creek 40 EC headset in it, Sram Rival Cyclocross Groupset with Avid Shorty 4 canti brakes. BicycleWheelWarehouse touring wheels in a 36 spoke 3X pattern. 46 cm wide dropbars and a VeloOrange seatpost with Brooks B17 Flyer saddle. Please excuse the electrical tape as I'm still sorting out the cable housing lengths and didn't want to trim the cable ends yet. Cantibrakes are a different animal.
