Highly Versatile Steel Commuter Bike
$899 USD / $1299 CAD
Cross-Check is a tough-as-nails, super-versatile road bike that 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, we don't necessarily condone that behavior.
Cross-Check was the first complete bike we 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.
NOTE: You can ride your bike wherever the hell you want, but this is what we think this bike is best at.

 Different tire and rim combinations will result in different clearances.
 Depending on drivetrain configuration, tire clearance may be limited by the chain and not frame.
 Listed chainring clearance is worst case scenario. Clearances vary widely depending on components and configurations.
