Jamie's Surly Cross Check

20 April 2023

Jamie contacted us enquiring directly about the Cross Check. These bikes are a bit of a cult hit with their adaptability and comfort. As with most Cross Checks, Jamie is not expecting this to be the only iteration of this bike, with many changes possible over the horizon.  

The build turned out quite beautiful. The Velo Orange tall stack stem and MKS Bear Traps add a nice finishing touch, while the Advent X groupset allows this bike to have some capable hill climbing gears.
