Anyone in the Chicagoland area with a 54cm Surly Crosscheck I can briefly "try on"

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I was curious to know if I would be able to try your 54cm Surly Crosscheck on only for a brief moment. I can give you $5 for your time. I want to build up a Crosscheck this spring and I'm not sure about the sizing and don't want to spend money on a frame that doesn't fit quite right. Unfortunately you can't test ride a built up frame of this type in store.

I have a Cross-Check that I had built up at the local Performance shop a few years ago. I don't know what size the frame is but you can try it out if you like. I am in Aurora.

If somehow you can figure out the size of the frame I'd be grateful for a test ride if it's 54cm.

Is there supposed to be a stamping somewhere on the frame that indicates size?
As far as a review. I'm not a bike expert by any means.
"I like to ride my bike" is kind of like Sling Blade's "I like them French fried potatoes".

I like to ride my bike
