Like a lot of our stuff, the motivation for producing a frame suited for travel sprung from their own experiences and desires. Surly have travelled with their bikes plenty and wanted something easier to haul around in planes, trains, and automobiles. They dig the folders but wanted a normal bike, something ready for whatever terrain is beneath the wheels.
Surly chose their Cross-Check frame for this platform because of its proven versatility. Already well-known as an excellent do-all frame, friendly with skinny tyres or fat, derailleurs or singlespeed drive trains, the Cross-Check takes just about anything you throw at it and handles it like a champ, on-road or off.
One of the main reasons to buy a frame like this is that the resulting bike can be fit into a case small enough that airlines won't charge you the normal bicycle rate, which tends to be quite pricey. In some cases you may now be charged, so be sure to check with your travel provider.
But this brings some responsibilities on your part. In order to fit your bike in a case this size, you have to do a fair amount of disassembly. This is easy, but you have to fit it all in the case, and this can be somewhat of a puzzle -- especially the first time. And when you get to your destination you have to reassemble it, which is not as easy. You will need the basic tools and know-how to safely remove and reinstall your wheels, your handlebar or stem, your pedals, possibly your fork (especially on larger frames). What Surly are saying is that there is a minimum level of knowledge required to use a frame like this.
Be sure and visit S&S Machine's web site. Instructions for packing your bike in a case, their story, their recommendations for care of your S&S Couplers, and their own reasons for why a frame with S&S Couplers is good for you can all be found there.

At Triton Cycles we aim to provide a returns service that is simple and hassle-free.
Should you need to return anything to us, it is very important that you telephone us first to advise us of your intention and the reason why you wish to return the goods. If you're not completely satisfied with an item you may return it within 14 days of purchase, and as long as the item isn't fitted or used we're happy to receive it back for a refund or exchange. Return shipping costs in this instance are non-refundable.
If the item is being returned as a result of our error i.e. damaged, defective, wrong item sent etc, we will refund Royal Mail First Class or Standard Parcel postage costs. If this is the case please include a copy of your purchase receipt when you return the goods for inspection. Please DO NOT sign for goods if you think that they are damaged, or the packaging has been tampered with. Instead, refuse to accept the delivery and contact us immediately(within 3 working days) so that we can take the matter up with our courier. Replacements will be sent to you as soon as possible. Signing for goods later found to be unacceptably damaged in transit complicates negotiations with the courier in dealing with your complaint. However, if a minor component is missing or broken(e.g. a reflector) please DO NOT return the whole bike. Simply contact us and we will replace the part as soon as possible. Please DO NOT discard any original packaging until you are fully satisfied with your purchase. Should you need to return a bicycle, couriers will not transport a machine not in the original or suitable packaging.

If you think your item is faulty and would like to make a warranty claim then please phone/email us before returning any goods - we may be able to solve your problem without you incurring any postage costs.
