    Old Noob from Norman, OK

    Hey All,

    Just retired from the USAF after 26 years. As a retirement "gift" to myself picked up a new Surly Cross-Check. Outfitting it for some short touring and commuting to work (whenever I decide to find a job, ha!).

    Haven't owned a bike in three years. Previous bikes were an old Myata Level 2000 MTB that I gave to a friend's son when I left Germany. Also had a Holdsworth that I put together back in 1982. My wife decided to give that one away when I was overseas. :facepalm

    Missed and wanted a new bike for some time, so said "what the heck." Forgotten how relaxed the biking community was, but soon rediscovered that in my quest for this bike. Good times.

    Cheers,

    Bellet

    Thanks! As for the gearing just went w/the stock parts from Surly, albeit going w/a 700c tire vs. the 27in. & some Shimano pedals. How dated am I? This is my first bike w/clip-less pedals. Going to add a Brooks saddle, rack & perhaps some fenders. Might hold off on the fenders though, as cyclocross is somewhat appealing and may eventually acquire another wheel-set to ride some easier trails.

    Cyclocross?? No fenders allowed there.
    Stop by the cyclocross forum for ideas.
