There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check does a good job of most things people use bikes for. It’s a cyclocross bike by design but it does a good job getting you across the country or across town too. It’s at home on the road and on trails, on gravel, and just about whatever else you might run into. It’ll take pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed or a fixed-gear.
The frame is designed to supply a comfortable but lively ride. The tubing is high quality drawn CroMoly steel, built to our specifications. It’s built to work with components of popular sizes, meaning you can find options in tons of new and old parts. It will accommodate a wide range of crank types and chainring sizes. It’s got accommodations for racks and fenders, front and rear. Because it takes those big tires, you can outfit it to suit where and how you’ll use it.
We offer the Cross-Check as a frameset and also in complete bike form. We’ve got two versions of the Cross-Check complete. This one is a 2x9, with drop bars, cantilever brakes and traditional bar-end shifters. It’s a tried-and-true set up that has delivered many a cyclist to wherever they’re headed.
