My LBS are trying to talk me out of a Cross Check - the weight weenies! I'm not looking for a high end racing bike, what I love about the Cross Check is that it's something I can use for everything - single track, cross, commuting, touring, even fixed gear. CC is my friend.
Is it really that heavy? Was it enough to put anyone else off going for this wonderful Surly? What did you get instead?
Other options I was looking at: Lemond Poprad, Planet X Kaffenback. Any comments?
