NEW BIKE DAY

Here's a blurry pic of my CrossCheck I picked up today. It's one of the completes that Surly sells. Bike shop upgraded the rear rim at no charge, as the original was damaged in shipment. I ordered a honey Brooks B-17 and some M-424 pedals. The bike fits pretty good. I may need the bars a little higher if I don't get used to them. I just haven't ridden drops in a while, so I'm giving them a chance before I raise them up any. I brought it home and swapped out the tires for my IRC Mythos slick 700 x 40's. Put on some fenders, computer, light, saddle bag, and bottle cages. One side of my right pedal sticks open when I click out of them. Anybody ever had that? I love the color and I love the bars. The bars are wide and flare out a little a the drops.

Sweet ride! Those Cross Check's are very, very nice. Is this your Trans Iowa ride then?

Hey Paul,
Yes, this is the Trans Iowa bike and will get used for pretty much everything. My only other bike is my old fixie that I bomb around on. I sold my track frame and my Xtracycle to finance the Surly. I'll be adding a Jandd rear rack and some small panniers for bike camping and RAGBRAI.
