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)

CroMo SS with roadish geometry and low bottom bracket ?

Hi .
Looking for a new single speed.
Should be CroMo , roadish geometry , and lowish bottom bracket.
Thanks for your ideas.
Surly Steamroller is CroMo , has low bottom bracket , but would prefer more relaxed geometry.
Thas for your ideas.

out of curiosity, why are you looking for a bottom bracket that is on the lower side?

i almost wonder if a road conversion would fit those qualities perfectly.
