Anyone have a candid picture of the 06 Green Surly Cross Check?

Surly's website is pretty unhelpful, and their customer service folks don't have anything. I'm looking for a candid photo so I can see what the "metallic green" really looks like before I order one. Thanks much.

Crud, they keep noticing me before I can snap a picture.
I wonder what the Surly Cross Check looks like in its natural habitat?

Sorry, couldn't resist

Those are all "Bean Green" from ~2001. Not the current green.

Correct--the current green is darker and more metallic--appears black on my monitor. Thanks for getting those images, though.
