Have a spooky and fun filled Halloween from Pedal Revolution!
Nice work San Francisco Giants!!
Great timing for the arrival of the 2015 Surly Cross Check in a new color scheme. Surly calls it “Dream Tangerine” but here at Pedal Rev we just refer to it as the “Giants Model”.
Surly has improved upon the awesome Cross Check for 2015. by adding V Brakes, Outboard bearing bottom bracket/crank, 10 Speed cassette!!, and the excellent Surly 700 x 41 Knard tire. Despite it’s huge appearance, the Knard has low center knobs and rolls much better on pavement than you’d expect and it absolutes shines on dirt or fire roads. The Cross Check has been a favorite bike of Pedal Revolution for the better part of a decade and this new version makes it even better.
Giants Win!! Celebrate with the 2014 Surly Cross Check World Series Version!!!@ Pedal Revolution
Well, this bike isn’t quite what you’d call a baby blue, but it still brings to mind the excellent song by Badfinger. Of course, the four English lads were at the peak of their recording efforts a good decade or so before this fine bicycle frame was made, by Trek, here in the United States of America. The connection may be fleeting, and based solely in color and not in time and space, but still it had to be made….
Whatever you’d like to call the color, it sure is a beauty. I believe it is a Trek 510 frame, made with the Reynolds 501 tubing, and is definitely from the early-to-mid 80’s. There are some cool information on some of these vintage Treks available here. A nice dose of old-school descriptive advertising for you.
In some of the pictures here you’ll see the unique textured effect, nicely done by the folks down at Champion Powder Coating. When it came back to us, we decided to modernize the whole setup by outfitting it with 10-speed Shimano Ultegra-level shifters, an 11/30 10-speed cassette, a compact double crankset with outboard bearings, and a Soma cockpit featuring the Sutro stem and the very comfortable and ergonomic Highway One handlebar.
Plenty of clearance for wider tires and even some fenders, if desired.
Nearly everything is new on this bike, and in frame build quality and component choice it compares very favorably to new machines such as the Surly Pacer, but has the clean lines of a classic rig. The seat tube measures 61cm and the top tube 58 cm (both center-to-center measurements), so if you’re in the 6’0″ to 6’3″ range and want a versatile road bike with a loads of style and functionality, come check it out sometime.
This one just went on the sales floor today and will likely go quick. A lugged steel Giant RS930 (Road Sport 930?) frameset converted in Pedal Rev style to a comfy and practical city bike. Brand new Sun M13 wheelset, Panaracer Pasela tires, Wald tourist handlebar, Tange headset, Oury grips, Shimano brake pads, new chain and 5 speed freewheel. An excellent daily rider.
55cm Seat Tube x 55cm Top Tube. Great for a rider 5’6″ -5’9″.
