There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check comes mighty close. It's a cyclocross bike by design, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it has only one purpose. This jack-of-all-trades will do just as well getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. At home on the road, on trails, and on gravel, the Cross-Check'll fit pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed, or a fixed-gear. The Cross-Check’s frame is engineered to supply a comfortable but lively ride. The tubing is CroMoly steel, high quality, custom-drawn, and built to our specifications. It's designed to work with components of popular sizes, meaning you can find both new and old parts to hang on this frame. It will accommodate a wide range of crank types and chainring sizes. It's got accommodations for racks and fenders (front and rear) and, because of its ample tire clearance, you can outfit it to suit where and how you will use it. There's a reason the Cross-Check has remained popular after all these years. The frame is comfy, tough as nails, and super versatile. Surly continues to hear from people for whom the Cross-Check has long been their go-to bike simply because it performs so astonishingly well on any surface.
650b what? In the old days when randonneuring bikes ruled on long rides over mixed surfaces, the 650b tire size was perfectly suited for moving fast under control. Surly took this concept and applied it to the Straggler, a disc brake-equipped any-road type of bike bred from their revered Cross Check. The slightly smaller wheels accommodate smaller frame sizes and plump tire widths, creating options where few exist in this realm of riding. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.
We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real stuff was back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.
So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that we added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked us to make a disc version of our highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though. The most obvious difference of course is that the Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check’s braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The Straggler’s geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere.

Surly's Travelers Check is all about versatility. It can be built up as a singlespeed or a geared bike on 700c wheels, has room for fenders and fat tires and has bosses for racks. And that's not even the best part! The entire bike breaks down to fit in a standard, airline-approved suitcase thanks to the S&S couplers! The 4130 chromoly tubing provides a smooth and stable ride and the comfy, stable geometry takes everything you can give it on the road or off the beaten path.

Take on the cyclocross scene and so much more with Ritchey’s venerable Swiss Cross Disc. With the same details that dominated the 'cross circuit and spurred envious glances at every start line, this timeless frameset is sure to supplant its progenitor in the annals of history. The classic details so coveted by pros and amateurs alike are all present: custom triple-butted steel, Ritchey dropouts, and the spot-on geometry that dials the ride to the perfect shade of refined stability and speed. To maximize those fine details, a lightweight head tube features Ritchey's integrated headset to shave weight and improve the steering response of the matching WCS carbon fork. With lots of room for shouldering and huge tire clearance, it's ready for the sloppiest race or ride. Yet it also has two bottle cage mounts in case you want to ride this piece of history every day. And, all-weather capable disc brakes provide sure-fire control and stopping power no matter what the conditions.
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

Pedal. Run. Push. Stumble. Fall. Get up and keep going. You love it and you hate it but you just can't stop. Whip through the turns. Sprint through the straightaways. Go flat out. Claw your way towards the finish line. And do it on the ultimate cyclocross weapon, Niner's BSB 9 RDO. You'll give BLOOD, you'll SWEAT, and you'll be rewarded with BEERS. Light enough to lift quickly and easily and formed using Niner's RDO Carbon Compaction system, the BSB rewards riders with a frame that boasts incredible power transfer and stiffness as well as updated technology like flat mount disc brakes that make installation and adjustment a breeze. Niner pairs this cyclocross-specific frame with their award-winning RDO cyclocross fork, which provides the off-road ride quality riders want. A 27.2mm seatpost gives just enough flex to take the edge off, while the steep headtube provides responsive handling. The frame's inner triangle keeps off-the-bike course sections in check with flat areas that increase shoulder comfort. Internal routing gets housing gets out of the way and provides convenient access windows for Di2 routing. The BSB 9 is a frame designed to endure the punishment of racing. But don't worry—this bike is built to withstand the rigors of cyclocross and is backed by Niner’s 5-year, C5 warranty.
Niner's people are big fans of the road less traveled. Making independent choices is how they were founded and it's how they approach the future. It is with this philosophy that they created the RLT 9. Is it a 29er? A monster-cross machine? A gravel grinder? The answer is yes. Whether you ride drop bars or flats, skinny tires or something a bit more rotund, the RLT 9 is meant for you. The RLT 9 Aluminum is constructed of hydroformed alloy, resulting in a frame that is light, efficient, and beautiful. This is paired with a custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork with rack mid mounts that seriously up its cargo carrying capacity. The frame features slightly longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker headtube angle. This creates the ideal geometry for a stable ride on the rockiest of roads, while still capable of winning a proper cross race. The RLT 9 utilizes modern standards—thru axles, flat-mount disc brakes, and a tapered headtube—that yield improved handling, speed control, and wheel stiffness. It's got internal shifter routings ports that are di2 ready, offers single-speed compatibility with a Biocentric bottom bracket, and has plenty of mounting points for fenders and a rear rack. With room for up to 1.75-inch tires, there are few adventures the RLT 9 isn't ready for.
While other frame materials fall in and out of favor, steel stands the test of time. Finely constructed steel frames, crafted and welded by the best builders, have continued to be the benchmark other materials measure themselves against. The RLT 9 is built with supple, trustworthy Reynolds 853 steel, producing a flawless synthesis of form and function in a frame that makes every ride open for adventure. When designing the RLT 9, Niner considered each detail with convenience and compatibility in mind. The frame utilizes thru-axle technology and flat-mount disc brakes for superior handling and speed control. It'll take a single, double, or triple chainring to conquer any and all terrain, and the PF30 bottom bracket allows the use of Niner's Biocentric bottom bracket for single-speed setups. There are 3 water bottle mounts on every size, as well as mounts for fenders and a rear rack. The bike features a buttery-smooth custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork, with mid-blade mounts for optional accessories. The Niner RLT9 is where performance, durability, and ride quality meet. From mounting panniers and racks for camping to traveling the gravel road that curves out of sight, the RLT 9 is more than capable for the open road.
