I am putting up my beloved 2011 Surly 54cm Cross-Check (these Surlys run kinda big, I'm 5'11" fyi!). I realize it's a bit on the pricier end for it's age but it is in excellent, ready to ride condition, with some pretty extensive parts replaced from the stock set. The most noticeable signs of age are the scuffs and the long-disintegrated Surly Decals. I took it in to a reputable local bike shop for a yearly tune up earlier this month and had them check everything, wrap new bar tape, etc. so it's in great condition. Last summer I put on a brand new wheelset, chain, and cassette on it, and it's been ridden a lot less in the past year; I doubt it's had more than a few hundred miles put on it in a year. Some residue of pollen dusting this time of year.

'Specs' (aka all the parts I have replaced or upgraded! Idk what the spacers/bb bearings are, etc. and the front chainrings and shift cables are all probably mid-grade stuff the bikeshop had on hand)
- Tiagra 10sp integrated shifters, FD/RD, 4700 generation (or something close)
- Shimano 105 11-28t cassette, KMC chain
- Salsa Cowchipper bars, 42cm
- Tektro Mini-Vs
- Gravelking 700x35s (SKs? the knobby ones, a lil older and I'm unsure of mileage but tread looking pretty good)
- Mavic A719/Deore 619 36 spoke wheels

Lastly: saddle/pedals and the fender *situation* (see additional pictures)
- While pictured with Holdfast BMX/foot holster thing pedals; I am intending to replace these with a generic and unexciting Wellgo flat that would accept toe cages but am waiting on a new pedal wrench in the mail. Possibly open to throwing these in with the bike for $20 or something like that, idk, or just not being talked down in price or whatever.
- the pictured saddle is an extremely basic wtb saddle I got for $20 from the bike shop off a stock 2016 Surly a customer had just bought; I just like it fairly well and haven't gotten around to switching it off bc I've been fixing up a project bike; I was probably going to swap it with an equally unexciting basic Giant saddle.
- The Longboard fenders I had slowly disintegrated and broke, and the only reason I have not removed the final bit is it's still doing a pretty good job of preventing puddles from being thrown up in your lap, I can take it off for you but who knows maybe you'd just as soon keep it on in "this economy"?

Pick up only in Chapel Hill, NC; I can meet you up to an hour away though for serious buyers. $900 but open to offers somewhat. Cash or certified bank check preferred.
