Yes it is very frustrating! Thanks for sharing your Steamroller life, very jealous.
Custom disc fork is the only way to go to preserve the handling.
Thanks, I will try the brakepads first.
I have a 23mm rim with surly hub and crap wheel in front. I want to use the front wheel as well.
I bought a trek crockett and use it 3 times. Even on the singletrack with the steamroller.
1x10 outdoes the 6spd wheel that fits mine :)
Wanky pic alert
So good though!
This is a long shot, but I'm looking for an old 56cm Steamroller frame that has a 1" head tube for a threaded fork. Thanks
here's one with a rear drum plus disc front- straggler fork
Yours? how does it ride?
Not mine, I wouldn’t mind it though
Feels good to be back on a 'roller.
Very nice, 35c?
Indeed. Nice and comfy!
Think maybe it needs a silver (titanium?) seatpost but otherwise happy for now!
Actually looking to build something timilar to this.
Black wheels and rim breaks, I guess the they will go metal/silver with time or is there any wizardry to avoid it?
No wizardry. Just new! The front is already starting to wear a bit (50 miles in). As @Heldring says, carbon rims are pretty much your only option to avoid it.
Bit of wabisabi is fine with me though.
Fatties Fit Fine.
48x19 fixed with Challenge grifo pro.
Racing in the woods like a MTB.
Before the decals came back on.
I planned 1000 km in 1 ride but came back after 230 km because the goal was gone and then it's mental impossible.
