    Surly Cross Check - Help with touring build

    I would like to build up my Surly Cross Check to a light to mid touring machine. I currently have the Surly standard build with a double ring up front and 9-speed out back with STI shifters. I want to change to mountain riser bars, touring-quality triple cranks and trigger shifters. Any suggestions on what parts would be the most rugged without really high$$$$?

    The standard Cross Check build is fine for touring.
    May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
    May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. -Edward Abbey

    don't know why you'd want risers for touring, but I'm sure you've gotten that already.
