2006 - 54cm Surly Crosscheck
Bought frame and fork in August 2006 and built up with mix of new and old stuff. The ultimate tinkerer's frame because it has so much clearance for tires - up to 700x45c, lots of braze-ons, and seems to handle whatever you decide to throw at it. Currently used as my primary commuter and everyday bike with fenders, rack, and lights.
