My employer bought one with the intention of having me build it up for her. I'll be building it up this week and will try to take a bunch of pictures.

Surly Cross-Check
I just bought some Panaracer Fire Cross 45c tires to make my Cross Check into a monster cross bike. I love this thing, it does anything you want it to do. Hopefully I get my act together and add some pictures with the fatty knobby tires on it.

Climbhoser: The Pake has very similar geometry. What about your current ride is bothering you? Neither one will be "racy" like a road bike, but I think they handle great. I built up the Pake for my wife and was comfortable pulling wheelies on it's first test ride. It felt very stable and predictable to me. Paint quality seems to be ok thus far. The frame was not too heavy, probably really close to my Surly if the size was the same. The ride is super smooth, which I think is the real point of riding a steel bike.

Build pictures finally uploaded. I would take some with the rack installed, but it is easy to just imagine it. They install in about 2 minutes with no clearance issues.

My wife is loving her Pake! We just rode 186 miles in three days for the Trek Across Maine ride and everybody was commenting how they liked her bike. Women in particular liked the color. The fenders were awesome when it rained the last day. She has commuted to work with a rack and a pannier with no issues and the Bontrager Hard Case 32c tires have had no flats at all. She really likes the upright position because I didn't cut much off the steerer tube. No back, neck or wrist pain even after our long ride. If I didn't already have a Surly Cross Check I'd be getting one for myself.

4.20.08 Built up the Pake frame. The build went well, the frame was very easy to prep and complete. Currently running 32c tires with Planet Bike Cascadia "hybrid size" fenders and there is still plenty of room left. The color looks better in person and really works with the black and silver parts. I tried to upload some pictures but it did not seem to work... My wife loves the bike and it was very comfortable to ride when I did the post build test ride. A great value.

Dirt Rag did a review a few issues ago. They seemed to like it. It has all the accessories that a newbie commuter would have to buy. Those by themselves are probably worth $400ish.

I will be purchasing one of these for my wife in the next month. I will try to update this with info when it is built.
