    Surly Steamroller or IRO Angus complete bike

    This question was posted almost exactly 1 years ago, and got a few responses.

    Surly Steamroller or IRO Angus Complete bikes

    I've seen more IROs on the road lately and thought there might be more/better opinions out there now.

    I'm considering both options. Thanks!

    I dont think that there is much difference between these bikes. The components on each are entry level, commuter components. They are each rather unimpressive looking (except that the IRO decals are not so ugly that you would have to remove them). The hubs on the IRO may be a better quality than the Surly, but that is certainly a debatable opinion.

    You do have more control over what you get on your IRO, and that's cool.

    OTOH, the Surly can take cross tires, if you need to ride in **** weather.
