    Got one I'm building now to see if it'll satiate my desire to get another Surly Cross Check. Its a lot cheaper than buying a $440 frame but has a few drawbacks but should be about as versatile.

    Put the 700c wheelset on today and stripped down the frame. Stock crank came with a 36t and 47t ring so I'm set for any SS work I want to do

    That Univega is bad-a$$ - I love re-purposed old steel bikes with canti's.

    To add the retro aesthetic philosophy while enjoying the the go-anywhere freedom of a slightly wider tire, I added an Italian recently.

    A good hand-built lugged steel-framed bike adds a little individuality to the ride.1997 Simoncini Special Cyclocross is ready for the road or trail. Everyone needs a retro lugged Columbus steel CX bike.

    A bone-stock Vaya 2, but loving it nonetheless. Seen in front of Mono Lake, CA.

    I am quite happy that I got the silver wanderlust rack, however...

    Too much, and worth every penny. Wheels were 1k, bike - OEM wheels about 4k. So 5k right off the bat. My wife wants me to sell a kidney.

    I haven't settled on a saddle yet, right now I have an Italia Selle C2 gel Flo...I have a Fizik Aliante VSX coming in to try.. I just settled on pedals and shoes as well. I think I'm going to change the crank...I want a little more low end..

    More common mechanics to hide the big alloy nut on the other side of the rear brake , but suit yourself..

    That is certainly a rare classic! Be careful calling it "Special" with that "Roubaix" text on the bars, the other S may get litigious.

    Very very nice, why don't you use a Veloce rear?

    Wanted to be able to use a 32 or even 34t cassette if the situation called for it. Think I have a 32 on it right now. Plus it opened up a lot of options for wheels at the price point I wanted to spend.

    A few recent pics, still need to get the rear rack on it, wanted to make sure I had the rear brake dialed in first. I do think a new saddle may be in order for the spring.

    Yeah, I know...it sucks...lmao. I'll get some better pics once I have it completely settled in...I changed the saddle, I need to put my clipless on, I want to rotate the brifters down a little bit because I'm not confident about being able to grab the brakes when I'm in the drops...I'd like to be able to get the first knuckles of my pointer and middle fingers around them... I want white bar tape as well...
