I have a Surly Cross Check that's setup as a singlespeed cyclocross bike. I will be doing my first race in about 2 weeks.
One thing I really enjoy doing is taking my cross check to the local trails but I have not tried anything too technical yet because I'm not sure if running a carbon Wound Up fork would be adequate for this. I've seen photos of single track races and it looks like a lot of fun, and I would eventually like to try it as the season comes. I was considering getting a Surly 1x1 built up, but I've been told that the Cross Check handles everything pretty well. What do you guys think? Could the cross check handle it or am I better off building something like a 1x1?
