    Based on what? We have two in my garage and they are very well designed bikes. A great value for the price, in fact.

    Wow. You actually talk about bikes and not locks or lights. There is a God.

    Are you just here to troll, or do you actually have something to say?

    Overrated only on this forum. In real life, I've only ever seen one. There's a guy I sometimes pass on my commute that has a Karate Monkey. I'm intrigued by the cross-check and/or LHT myself, but I already own two nice commuters (a touring bike and a hybrid), so it's hard to justify getting another bike that isn't much different than what I already have.

    I have a new surly cross check, about 175 miles on it. Great bike for the money.

    My LHT is the Swiss army knife of bicycles. Its heavier, bulkier, and more complex than I usually need it to be, but its gets the job done 99.9% of the time. I have other bikes I ride for enjoyment.

    Why should I hate them? They've never done anything to me. Don't like it? Don't buy it. Troll thread.
    You have the right to your own opinion. You don't have the right to your own facts.

    Let's see:

    7500 miles on my Cross Check in the last 18 months. Includes commuting through 2 snowy (for here) winters, over a dozen centuries, 2 doubles, and I've earned my ACP 200k and 300k medals on it. I'll be earning my 400k medal on it in August.
    It was reasonable priced, is comfortable, and hasn't fallen apart underneath me. Yeah... totally over-rated.

    Keep in mind the OP is the same person who referred to slick tires on CX bikes as girly.

    I'm pretty sure you are thinking about the guy with 'jack' in his name, not that guy.

    Surly's aren't bad bikes at all, but I think the whole steel thing is overrated. In comparison to wheel, seat and seatpost flex, frame flex is so minimal I don't see how it could be noticeably measured at all. Plus you can just use smaller diameter aluminum tubing to make it flex more.

    I would love to have a Titanium frame, though.

    I would love to know why you think so, you might even be right. But for the time being I am going to have to assume you are a troll.

    I got a Surly Big Dummy 2 months ago. I've been riding it everywhere.
    Mebbe the only Surly I will own,but it is plenty surly to me.
