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.

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

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.
