    Up for sale is my custom Surly Steamroller. Purchased as a frameset at the start of this year I have built it up to be the perfect randonneuring bike for hassle free miles on back lanes. The bike has had very little use and due to work and other commitments I have decided that it's time to move on.

    Spec is as follows:
    Frame and fork - Surly Steamroller (59cm) in "Drink More Water" yellow
    Headset - Hope
    Wheels - Condor
    Tyres - Panaracer Pasela 32mm
    Cranks - Shimano 175mm
    BB - Shimano square taper
    Drivetrain - Dinglespeed: Surly Dingle sprocket (17-21) and Stronglight chainrings (38-42)
    Handlebars - Pro LT (44cm)
    Bar tape - Salsa Gel Cork tape
    Stem - Pro LT (100mm)
    Seatpost - Pro LT
    Saddle - Charge Spoon
    Brake calipers - Tektro R539
    Brake levers - Tektro
    Mudguards - SKS
    Bottle cage - King Cage stainless

    The bike is in very good condition overall with some scratches and paint chips around the dropouts from wheel removal and chain tensioning. The bike is located in Stirling, Scotland however I'm willing to deliver anywhere in Scotland if the right price is offered. I'm looking for around £450 O.N.O. If anyone would like to arrange a viewing or would like further pictures then please let me know either on here or by contacting me on 07866010023.

    Hi all, I'm after a set of bombproof fixed wheels (100 mm front, 120 mm rear) with rims suitable for slightly larger tyres (32 mm). I've given myself a budget of £150 but can go higher for the right set of wheels. Let me know what you've got!

    I've just purchased a Steamroller frameset and I wanted to see whether anyone had a decent wheel set they'd be looking to sell. Obviously as the Steamroller has track spacing I need 120mm rear, 100mm front hub spacing. For rims I'm looking for something bombproof that can be ridden off road and will take a 38mm tyre (Mavic a119/a319/a719 or similar). I feel like I'm asking for quite a lot but this is as good a place to ask as any! Hope you guys can help! Cheers!

    I'm sure it has been covered in this thread a few times but what size Steamroller would be appropriate for me at just over 6'2"? I'm thinking of going for a 59cm but how does everyone else feel with regards to sizing?
