Revised 8/06


Really enjoying your site.

I've included some updated photos of my Surly Cross Check (number 98). I'm loving this bike more and more. With the miles I put on this I had to upgrade my wheels, so I now have a set of Ultegra hubs with Open Pro rims. 105 front and rear derailleur with Dura-ace bar end shifters... seamless 9-speed. Smartest thing I ever did was put a 48 tooth chainring on to replace the 52... It's made the bike so much more versatile.

Continental 28c Gatorskins... I've yet to have a puncture on the nasty streets of Toronto and they roll like a set of 23's... and they are sticky, just fabulous! I highly recommend them.

I put close to 200 miles a week with panniers on this thing, and it just keeps on going and going and going and... well, you get the picture.

Stay well and keep up the good work.
