The Steamroller is the bicycle in its simplest form — the fixie. You may be thinking, “Fixies are so 2008” or “All the blogs I read say I should like something different now.” Well, the Steamroller is different. Built for the streets, it has a geometry that’s closer to that of a road bike than a true track bike. Couple that with its double-butted 4130 CroMoly steel construction and 38c tire clearance and you have yourself a lively and resilient ride that can handle potholes, grass shortcuts, urban trails, and back alleys like a champ.

I changed the 700 x 28 tires that came with the bike to 700 x 32C Panaracer Messengers. The fixie allows the rider to maintain a consistent pedal stroke. Good for the exercise.
