Ok, so Surly have finally relented and stuck discs on the Cross Check.
STI levers as well.
But they've added £600 to the bloody price.
Yup, £1600 for a cro-mo framed bike with a 105 groupset.
I suppose we've become used to comedy pricing over the last few years, but this really is taking the piss.
I believe this was the meeting finalising the price of the complete bike:
It's up there with the Genesis Grapil (that ended well, didn't it?) and anything from Orange in the 'these idiots will pay anything' stakes.
Could you really ever look at yourself in the mirror ever again after handing over full price for one of these?
Shame. Looks like a nice bike.
A free envelope of blancmange through the post for anyone who can find a worse example of stitch up pricing.
