I've reading about frame geometry and ride stability. Concerning the Surly cross-check, I'm assuming its somewhat agressive geometry will be a trade off when loaded for touring, but what about the chainstay legth? It's 16.7 inches....that's 1.4 inches shorter then the Long Haul Trucker. Is the 16.7 inches long enough or will the back of my feet be hitting the paniers as I pedal? Has anyone used the cross-check for loaded touring?
