This Surly Steamroller Frameset 2011 is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
A steamroller has the ability to flatten anything in it's path, which is exactly how you'll feel the first time you take our Surly Steamroller fixed-gear for a twirl.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
Designed to give you the ideal foundation for a pure and unadulterated fixed gear bicycle... you may think 'messenger', 'track', urban assault or coffee shop... or whatever... but make it your thing.
As we have said since we introduced the Steamroller frameset, we won't try to convince you that riding 'fixed' is better or special or why you should try it. You'll have to try that for yourself. But whether you're old school or new hat, you'd be hard pressed to find a better canvas to build your ideal street machine.
It's made from Surley 4130 CroMoly steel because steel is durable and responsive, things we like and we're pretty sure you do too. Its geometry is tight compared to road frames and relaxed compared to twitchy track frames. It takes big tyres because big tyres make sense - Tyre casings flex before the frame. It's got almost no 'features', no pump peg, no housing stops, no cell phone or GPS mount. Just a set of water bottle braze-ons. Well, it does have a nice brazed crown fork we think looks pretty snazzy. If you're like us, you may consider less tangible elements (such as ride quality) to be features and it's got these in spades. This is a frame meant for riding. Everyday.
It was designed by cyclists for cyclists. It's most at home on the street, but it's also track legal and does a pretty fair job on trails too. It's a fixed gear frame in the tradition of fixed gears, before there were freewheels or handbrakes (effective ones, anyway), harkening back to a time when big tyres weren't a design feature but a necessity, when a ride was an adventure.
But hey, don't let us convince you. Try one out, it may just become your favourite bike
Track frames are built for single speed use with a fixed gear. They have horizontal rear entry drop outs and a higher bottom bracket for clearance on the banking. Over recent years single speeds have seen a surge in popularity, no doubt due to the large amount of couriers using them, many people are adopting single speeds for commuting and training on through the winter months. The fixed gear nature of a single speed teaches you to spin the pedals smoothly on the flat and power over inclines, as there is no hiding on a single speed. You can even find people Time Trialling on them on some of the flatter courses. With a single speed you get a versatile bike suitable for training on through the winter, commuting all year round and then racing at the velodrome on.
