Dude, you have to stop linking pictures from your email, we can't see it.

Try to upload it to Photobucket, Imageshack etc etc.

Love this thread! Anybody ever mount a rear rack? I know it doesn't have the braze-ons but I know Nitto makes these bad boys, was sure if they'd work.

Black is the new bling...

Hi guys, I just wanted to show you my Roller. It rolls the streets of Norway...

It used to be a '09 cream colored Steamroller. I have powdercoated it black and mounted a set of all black Weinmann wheels, new Selle Italia seat, a carbon seatpost, a carbon fork and a cut MTB carbon riser bar.


At first I had some 700x32 hybrid/cross tires on and a red stripe on the rims. I kinda liked that look...



Then I changed the tires for more racing ones from Continental and I removed the red stripe on the rims for that "all black - bad ass" look...


And sometimes I ride it with a drop bar for speed...

I want to do something else for head badge. I since changed calipers and handlebars. Calipers didn't quite fit and handle bars were switched out to something more comfortable for long rides. I need to post additional pics of setup.

The downtube looks so thin. What stem is that?

Are your joking?

Thats called a riser. Most likely a 25.4, but could be a 31.8. Pretty much any company that makes handlebars should have something similar.
