    The rims are great! I noticed a huge difference in ride quality from the previous wheelset (some cheap Alex's) right off the bat. They track well, are stiff, and take some abuse. They started life...

    I got a pair of H+Son Archetypes laced to 105 hubs from them last fall. The rear wheel was way out of true, but a quick trip to the LBS had everything looking good. I had them take a look at the...

    another vote for mini-v's. i have tektro 926AL's on one bike and tektro RX6's on another. both sets work great. not as blingy as the TRP's, but I'd guess they stop just as good.

    You probably want a crankset with a 110bcd or 130bcd so you can use a narrow wide chainring. I haven't seen any made with the 144bcd (most track cranks). That, and the 144bcd would limit your...

    No idea how they're produced, but I would think at this point Surly has their production game down. The only thing that changes on their frames is the paint.

    Yes, inexpensive to purchase. ...

    Walgreen's, gas stations, etc... Usually under $10. Or if you're feeling fancy, go the Target route.

    I'd rather bomb around trails on my CX bike with 40's than my road bike with 25's. And yes, they've both seen time off road. Which brings up another point, tire clearance. Road bikes generally...

    As far as gearing goes, the Tread has a 54/30 with a 12-30 cassette. That's a pretty wide range. The other bike has the more CX common 46/36 with an 11-28. If it's a question of gearing for the...

    While there are some interesting points in here about cross bikes, I don't think they really need to be fretted over by the OP.

    The cable routing isn't going to be a major issue at all with...

    Mostly they're inexpensive and brand recognition. They also have a good, positive attitude (more than most if you ask me) about bikes and life in general. I'd also imagine a bit of luck on Surly's...

    You weren't asking me, but the tires are great. The extra volume is nice off road, and they grip well in most conditions you'll encounter. Very confidence inspiring. If you're bike can clear them,...

    I have a feeling the OP's new bike will see little to no mud anytime soon. There's not much rain these days in Southern California, assuming that's where his Irvine is.
