Surly: Cross-Check

The Cross-Check is a versatile road bike from Surly that is tough-as-nails as it performs astonishingly well on any surface.


There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but Cross-Check comes pretty damn close. It's a dyed-in-the-wool commuter and utility rig. It was a "gravel crusher" long before "gravel bikes" existed. Some people have even raced cyclocross on it. Though, Surly doesn't necessarily condone that behavior.

Cross-Check was the first complete bike they ever offered. Since then, people have modified them hundreds of different ways to suit their riding styles and preferences. There’s a reason that nearly every person who has ever worked for Surly has owned one.

  • Semi-horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability
  • Gnot-Rite dropout spacing allows installation of 130 and 135mm hubs
  • Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders
  • Clearance for 700c x 42mm tires with or without fenders


Pavement Bikes

Today's steel road bikes are tricky little buggers. Surly values steel pavement bikes that can go well beyond fresh asphalt, have accoutrements for various accessories, and won't leave you fighting a sore back for weeks after your ride. They design their steel road bikes for versatility rather than race results and the only wind tunnels they use are the ones that are attached to them.
