surly cross check ultimate commuter…

What happens when no bike companies offer the bike you want? You have The Broken Spoke build up exactly what you’re looking for of course!

This is the ultimate commuter for a certain customer who rides year-round & sold his car a few years ago(well done, Jesse!). He wanted something that would require very little maintenance & would accommodate wide studded tyres for the Winter with fenders with no problems.

The rack & fenders, along with a few other things, will be transferred over from his other bike onto this one to complete the ultimate commuter package.

A sweet Sturmey-Archer five speed downtube shifter makes the power shifts happen! The rear wheel was hand-built by me & utilizes an internally geared hub for a minimal maintenance drivetrain.
