Surly Steamroller-Fixed Gear!

by RL Policar

I know there are a brave bunch of commuters that use a Fixed Gear bike to ride everyday to work. I know I am not one of them. For those of you that do, AMEN to that!

Surly Bikes makes a really sweet fixie called the Steamroller. Here’s a little sample on how they describe the bike:

“A steamroller has the ability to flatten anything in its path, which is exactly how you’ll feel the first time you take our Surly™ Steamroller fixed-gear for a twirl. Unstoppable. Euphoric. Happy. If you haven’t ridden fixed before you might even feel a little bit scared.”

You can check out Surly’s Steamroller HERE and once you’re done, read the Surly interview conducted by the boys at BlueCollar MTB HERE.
