FYI: Surly price increase
Just today we noticed that most Surly framesets and complete bikes have increased in price, which happens from time to time. For the most part, complete bikes have gone up $50-100. Even at the new price, we still believe that Surly bikes represent the best bang for the buck (usually the best bang, period, actually) for non-frivolous bicyclers of a rugged and adventurous disposition. At the moment, it seems remaining stock of most 2012 Surly bike models is still available at the lower price. In other words, if you've been contemplating the purchase of a Long Haul Trucker or Cross-check, now would be a good time. In the near future, it'll still be a good time to buy a Surly, but it'll cost more. The $100 you save now will go a long way toward a rack, fenders, fancier saddle, nice pedals, or a titanium bell.
