    new surly/iro rig

    IRO is great, but the Angus geometry is a bit tight for me...

    So I built up a Steamroller with an IRO drivetrain and wheelset! Charcoal Pearl and black.

    I thought about getting the Steamroller "Complete" but was turned off by the maroon frame and Alex rims.

    Anyway, check it out: http://www.awry.ws/node/47

    damn, what's with all you haters??? i'm just pscyhed about my new rig... i wasn't really looking for your approval. bullhorns or drops, steamroller or angus... it's all personal choice. in my case, personal choice dicated by physical build (the angus top-tube is too short for me, and i also like the extra reach of the bullhorns).

    pretentious dick? i dunno where that's coming from... if you don't know me, you have no business judging me. and if you knew me, you'd know that i'm not pretentious at all. a bit of a dick at times... well that's another story. :-)

    I chalk it up to snobby little kids who think that they were *first* to ride a fixed gear cycle and others are taking away from their exclusiveness, like when rich womens' handbags go mainstream.

    Ignore 'em, they'll be doing the same thing in the 'burbs over BBQ grills in a few years....

    Haha, "pretentious dick" was said in your defense, awry (i.e. referring to isotopesope).
    At least I hope so...

    Yeah, we wouldn't want to fill up the sub-forum with useless threads.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I was racing velo on a fixed when I was 7 at the Balboa Park San Diego Velo and at the Encino one. Does that make me the coolest person here?

    Why? What's wrong with the angle? If I look like a jackass, at least tell me why. Though, I have to say that they're pretty comfortable for me there... so I'm not sure I care!

    Oh, I see... yeah, they're kinda vertical in those pics. That was before I tuned and adjusted everything... I'm not actually riding like that.

    +1 The pretenious dick comment was not aimed at the OP, just all the haters. The bike looks good man. Has a nice stealth feel to it.

    It's just their way of showing the love. Nice ride, btw.
