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. - Semi-horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Gnot-Rite dropout spacing allows installation of 130 or 135mm hubs - Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders - Clearance for 700 x 42mm tires with or without fenders
Elbow-to-elbow battles for position. Screaming spectators. Sprints for victory. This pro-level cyclocross bike has seen it all and has been on pro podiums at the highest level. With a lightweight composite frameset and integrated components, it’s a champ in all conditions. When you’re launching an attack, chasing the break or railing turns in sketchy cyclocross conditions, every advantage counts. Pros settle for nothing less than perfection, and this is the machine that meets their demands. The TCX Advanced Pro features a superlight Advanced-grade composite frame that’s handcrafted with race-proven geometry and asymmetrical chainstays for optimal power transfer. The innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost, first pioneered for this very bike, adds compliance without adding weight, so you can pedal smoothly no matter how rough the course. Other innovations include a lightweight composite WheelSystem and tubeless tires right out of the box, flat-mount disc brakes, and a 12mm front and rear thru-axle for total control cornering, sprinting or climbing in all conditions. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Light and agile - Advanced-grade composite frame offers a perfect balance of light weight for climbing and accelerating, plus stiffness for precise handling on rough cyclocross terrain. Total control - Integrated disc brake technology with flat mounts and thru-axle hubs, combined with tubeless ready Giant WheelSystem, delivers added control in variable conditions and all types of weather. Smooth ride quality - D-shaped composite seatpost reduces shocks and vibrations, minimizing fatigue so you can stay strong to the finish.
The Nature Cross Single Speed comes primed for racing, covering quick up-and-downs, and cutting through the gnarliest of courses. Now crafted from A.C.E tubing — All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing — the Nature Cross's expertly engineered butting profiles and wall diameters provide advantages that even the most excellent off-the-shelf tubing just can’t match. Stronger, lighter, quicker, and stiffer than ever, it’s simply unlike any other singlespeed in the world. Featuring modern race geometry and an ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over obstacles, we’ve increased the Nature Cross's mud clearance to eliminate unnecessary pit stops on the course. Built with an Eccentric Bottom Bracket to manage the chain tensioning, a shortened chainstay, and replaceable derailleur hanger, we’ve also outfitted the Nature Cross with a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires. With a fresh paint job, all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect star here too, including custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. For steel lovers starving for competition, these updates to the Nature Cross are destined to get you across the finish line faster than ever before. - A.C.E steel tubing: All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, extruded steel tubing, custom designed to be lighter and stronger for riding and racing - Contemporary race geometry, raised bottom bracket, shortened chainstay, and increased mud clearance - Ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over barriers - E.D. coated for durability and rust prevention - Built-in seat clamp and internal rear brake cable routing - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. Now the Swiss Cross is back, and better than ever. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Painted-to-match Ritchey WCS Cross fork and WCS integrated headset included - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Front Derailleur Clamp: 28.6mm (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Headset: WCS integrated drop-in 41.8 (included) - 130mm rear spacing - Weight: 1941g / 4.28lbs (55cm, frame only) - Sold as frameset only
