I'm looking to purchase my first fixed-gear and the Steamroller seems to be at top of my list of entry level fixies.
LBS recommended it to me and I absolutely fell in love with the ride when i test rode it the other day.
I've sifted through the numerous threads on surly and fixed-gears and purchasing your first fixed-gear but i guess i really want reinforced opinions.
I plan on riding it daily...commuting at least 15 mi/day on the weekdays all year round in the MD/DC area...probably more.
What are your thoughts?
Any immediate upgrades necessary (esp. during wet/icy conditions in the winter)?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
