My Comments

Surly Cross-Check
Correction: Pake has substantially similar geometry to the Cross Check, but slightly shorter effective top tube lengths and a sloping actual top tube. My other observations about the shorter rear dropouts still apply, and the top tubes aren't significantly shorter. I like what look like low rider rack bosses on the fork but the shorter rear dropout looks like it might compromise load carrying capability by forcing a more forward rear axle position.

Pake has basically the same geometry as the Cross Check, so if you had a fit issue with a given size you will still have it. Other than that the Pake has a shorter rear dropout, so less range of adjustment for wheel position. That means you'd be restricted to closer gears if doing a Dingle cog or two-sided hub as a single-speed.
