    No sir. I found them on Google a few years back for $20. They're really comfortable though I forget the brand as there's no logo.

    I ride a 54cm C-T frame currently and I'm looking into a steam roller. I have short legs, should I be looking at the 53cm or the 55cm

    You should read the stickies.

    Y'no, if I thought the Stickies were the best place to ask, I would've asked there.

    I'm concerned more with the bikes geometry, seems to be more rectangular than square, is that a fair assessment?

    Here's the geometry chart. Now go back to the sticky and follow the instructions. There is no point in helping you if you aren't going to help yourself.

    Now I don't have much mechanical experience, I just love to ride this bike and on the side of things I try to read up on bike stuff. So, last night I installed a new chainring for the first time and also switched out the stretched out stock chain. Earlier on I read that someone on here liked their chainring from Fyxo, so ordered one of those a couple of weeks back. From stock 44t to 50t I now feel much more "at home" with the bike, not spinning out as easily.

    Needless to say, I'm eager to ride to the gym later on today to get a good feel for it.
    Anyways, sorry for the novel - here's a crappy phone pic from the office this morning.

    Where'd you get the top tube break line holders? I've been searching everywhere for those exact ones, no luck.

    Someone said to post my Surly here so I will. Recent addition to my stable, only fifteen miles on it for fit critique, need to raise saddle a bit and slide forward. Also will take one spacer from under stem. Stock photo on top. Upgrade photo on bottom; upgrades are Brooks saddle, Cinelli stem, Salsa Cowbell 3 handlebar, Wabi stainless cable guides, and new brake levers. Also de-stickered except for headtube emblem. I am going single speed, not fixie, too old for that.
    An earlier bike on forum is steering me to change out stem, spacers and seatpost out to brushed aluminum.

    kinda busy with the flowers and veg, but I just added some brown h-bar tape to replace the neon green.

    What a great ride these bikes are.

    Apparently you are unaware that early versions of Steamroller were 1" threaded?

    May have even been easier to find than a Rumrunner if you had searched, but Rumrunner is a nice bike too...
