Surly Cross-Check scorcher style...

Finished this really sweet single-speed scorcher style Surly Cross-Check today. Turned out great. Funny thing about this bike is the new owner is an old friend from when I worked at Pacific Coast Cycles pre-1993. One day he called me out of the blue and we reconnected a mere 17 years later. Recently he got the bug for a single-speed run-about and the end result is this bitchen Cross-Check - scorcher style with flipped Nitto Albatross bars. Drove up all the way from Newport Beach to pick up this bad boy. Thanks, Jeff!

Very nice sir. I've always loved that style of set up. I've been contemplating a similar build for my self. What a nice way to get around town.

Sweet, holy roller that is a great set-up for take outs.. groceries, the mail or pkg runs. I'd trade my old Cherokee off, nice color!
