    Damn those are rad. What can I say, I'm easily impressed. Fat tires and a few odds/ends looks like the perfect winter bike or backroads cruiser.

    RichPugh, your steamroller is awesome.

    I'm pretty excited to post pictures of my creamroller build soon.

    Uh oh! I'm about to bust out a new thread for the crosscheck owners now since Surly allows some great builds to be built! :<D

    I used a metal paint scraper to get the decals off. The powdercoat is tough as nails ! No chips, no marks.. nothing.

    Anybody have one of those older threaded fork Steamrollers? When did they switch to threadless? They look awesome. Just saw this one on craigslist:

    I'm seriously considering the following, tell me if I'm crazy:

    Cross-check with rear disc hub. Theoretically, with one wheel (and two chains), I could run 1x9, 1x1 with a SS spacer kit, and put a bolt-on cog on the disc mount to run it fixed.

    Thoughts? Am I missing something here? Would the chainline be all effed up?

    Xcheck has no rear disk mount. You can do a karate monkey like that though

    No, I was planning on using cantis and using the disc mount on the HUB for something like this:

    I think the spacing/offset of the wheel wouldn't be the same from side to side. Thus you wouldnt be able to flip it from fixed to freewheel sides.

    Through a lengthy series of trades my Steamroller evolved into a Crosscheck.

    I do miss it a ton though. Ignore the handsome devil on it:

    Shouldn't be a problem. I use a bolt-on cog and the chainline is darn near perfect with the middle ring of a mountain crank. If you used a 3/32'' cog and a chain with two master links, you wouldn't need two chains and the switch would be a five minute job.
