Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Steamrollers and Kryptonite: a very specific question.

Does anyone know if a Kryptonite Evolution Mini will reach around a Deep V to a Steamroller downtube? I want to know if I can lock the front wheel to the frame with this or if I need a longer lock. This question is kinda a longshot but I figured if anyone was going to know, he or she would be here.

I have a 53 Steamroller, and that same lock, with Mavics and the setup fits fine.

The best answer I can give until someone with more specific experience comes along:

It won't work. I have a mini, and a Pista (more trackish/tighter geometry than the 'roller?), and non-deep v wheels, and it's usually a PITA to lock the wheel and frame to a bike rack, stop sign, etc.

edit: beaten

also, I might have misread: are you talking about just locking the wheel to the frame, or locking both to a stationary object?

I'm just looking to lock my front wheel to the frame, a 56cm Steamroller. I have another lock for the rear that is big enough for stationary objects . The rims will be (poser caps on everyone?) Velocity Deep Vs, if you need specifics.

Are you running the Mavic CXP33s?

this will work for lockin your wheel to frame, and can even lock to other object, but its a pain in the ass.
