Surly reaches 4000 miles!
My Surly Cross Check has reached 4000 miles after just 4 years. This isn't bad considering that I use the bike primarily for commuting purposes and running errands. Of course, it has been my bike of choice on a few touring trips (RAGBRAI and GAP trail in PA). It actually probably has more like 4,200 miles, because I didn't buy the bike computer right away. To put this in perspective, it's 3,200 miles from US coast to coast (Augusta, Maine to Los Angeles, CA). Anyway, my trusty steel steed has done very well over the course of those many miles. Surly Nation!
