A SHORT RIDE + TOAST TO THE MOST

AVERAGING BIKE EVER DESIGNED:

THE Surly CROSS CHECK, 2000-2023

The SURLY Cross Check frame was first offered in 1999, followed by a complete bike in 2000.

It was a sleeper hit from the start. At Trophy Bikes, we called the Cross Check, “The FENDER TELECASTER of bikes.” It wasn’t the best/most of anything, but a Cross Check was pretty good at practically everything.

Parent company QBP said CCs were still selling OK, but the push to make every bike use disc brakes to stop, and the success of SURLY’S Straggler (pretty much a disc Cross Check) led to the CROSS CHECK being discontinued in 2023, the longest run of any SURLY.

This ride is Party-Paced, ends close to the start, in plenty of time to make your Saturday Night festivities.

PLEEZ:

Ride your CROSS CHECK if you got one (look at Craigslist!), or ride your SURLY of any type.

Or jeez just ride a steel bike. Carbon fiber bikes may be subject to keying.

AND ALSO:

Helmet and lights, duh. BRING 4 quarters or a dollar bill for the prize pot!
