The Steamroller is the bicycle in its simplest form — the fixie. You may be thinking, “Fixies are so 2008” or “All the blogs I read say I should like something different now.” Well, the Steamroller is different. Built for the streets, it has a geometry that’s closer to that of a road bike than a true track bike. Couple that with its double-butted 4130 CroMoly steel construction and 38c tire clearance and you have yourself a lively and resilient ride that can handle potholes, grass shortcuts, urban trails, and back alleys like a champ.
When a simple bike is done right, every ride puts a smile on your face. Surly's Steamroller is one such bike. It started long ago with the idea of using a track bike as a quick-getaway machine in urban landscapes and has evolved into the slightly more road-oriented, steel-framed city skipper it is today. The Steamroller is built from 4130 chromoly for durability and pleasant ride qualities, and trades Surly's typical commuter-friendly touches for straightforward performance. You get a fixed/free rear hub and alloy crank with 45/18 gearing, Tektro road caliper brakes, a comfortable Dimension Arc swept-back handlebar, and 700 x 32 Continental Contact tires — everything you need for dodging potholes, taking impromptu shortcuts, and carving your way through the downtown hustle.
Giant's Omnium is built to produce as much speed as possible in the velodrome. This pure-bred track racing machine is made with stiff, aerodynamic and lightweight aluminum tubing. The OverDrive steerer tube and purpose-built aerodynamic fork offer incredible front-end stiffness and precision for out-of-the-saddle sprints. There are no brake bosses, no bottle mounts, no frills — just pure performance to beat the competition and the clock. - ALUXX SL-grade aero track frame with Giant Vector composite seatpost - Advanced-grade composite fork with alloy OverDrive steerer - Giant SL Aero wheelset with Giant P-SLR1 tires - SRAM Omnium track crank with 13, 14, 15, and 16-tooth cogs
