It's that time of year again. My Surly Cross-Check is morphing from Rain/commuter bike and going back to its roots as a CycloCross bike.

The King headset is over ten years old. It is truly an install and forget component. It was one three of four other bikes before this one.

Dura-Ace 9-Speed shifters and Paul brakes.

XTR rear der. and a road cassette??? :scared: All the 9-speed stuff is inter-changeable.

Since it is often my commuter bike, I have to let everyone know how I feel about cars.

Where do you order/buy custom decals like that?

The x-check is nice. I believe one of the mech's (tony i think) at bike-n-gear had a sweet beige colored one.

That sticker was courtesy of Bike Rag magazine. I snagged it at a bike festival. They don't offer them any more. They had to tone it down a notch when their sticker proclaiming, "Ride a Fvcking bike" started appearing on gas pumps and the like. :rolleyes:

I bet a Google search would turn up sources of custom stickers. :hmmm:

C'mon cross!

I have to get into the shop this week and put the final touches on for the weekend.

Sweet!! Cyclocrossing!!

Oh and for those who want stickers, Pearl Izumi is doing a bunch of "anti-car" stuff, including one that says "Signal to cars" and has a middle finger up, I had it on my bike but removed it because it's not the message we need to send...

I got this last year, it's built up with chorus 9sp. This year I may even get my lazy ass around to racing it!

This thing feels like a rocketship. Hope you do get out to some races this season, it'll be a hoot.

Actually, the way I ride, it feels more barge-like! But I get your drift. I've decided only to attend races that have a ready supply of beer.
