Strengths:    aesthetics

Weaknesses:    frame

Bottom Line:   
My new Surly Steamroller frame bent after only four weeks of light use. The frame experienced to trauma to explain the failure. I lost a whole inch of wheelbase, the top and bottom tubes of the frame had bent significantly as well as the fork. The bike was brand new and I had put less than 100 miles on it.
I tried to take it back to both the shop and the manufacturer since it was clearly defective, but they refused to warranty it.
Now I'm stuck with a new bent frame; the pedals overlap the front wheel making for tricky riding.
Cheep steel! I would recommend staying away from all Surly products. Quality Bike Products should stick to distribution and leave production to the professionals.

Steamroller - Which carbon fork

I have been wanting to get a carbon fork for the Steamroller. Any suggestions? I'll be running 23-26 tires, so does not need to have the clearance the stock forks has (something with standard reach calipers, though). I do like the stock fork angle/rake, so something similar? Thanks.Read More »

Surly Steamroller fork

Hi there, Anyone have experience with this fork? I'm wondering if it's versatile enough to use with a 35c cross tire since the website says it has clearance for up to 38c tires... Thanks, HSRead More »
