    Really lovely build!

    The amount of variation in the builds of the SS, as seen on this forum, never ceases to amaze me.

    New bike or just one we haven't seen berfore (or recently)?

    Good spot! A new, but secondhand, bike.

    I read this article last year, and again this year: https://www.bikeradar.com/features/ridinĀ­g-during-lockdown/ and was very taken with the Surly Steamroller, and the idea that I could do off-road detours while riding around town appealed to me a lot.

    Good luck getting a new Steamroller anytime soon, plus I love the mustardy yellow colour from around 2018 (I think), so I pounced when I saw this baby going 2nd hand.

    I love it. With fatter tyres and the steel frame, it's a smoother ride than (say) my Condor Lavoro. Plus I can off-road it whenever I want - e.g. the track that runs between Preston Park station and Withdean Stadium; also the woodland areas at the bottom of Coldean Lane.

    Plus I've taken it up the Downs Link, Cuckoo Trail, Pevensey Levels and more. It's got a bit muddy, but that's ok.

    Good old red-hubs Condor is on long-term loan to my friend Paul of Rule 5 Bikes so if you see that bombing around town, it ain't me!

    Bottom of Round hill Cresent

    I'm impressed by those two massive "Brighton and Hove" planters at the bottom of RHC. I can't recall seeing anything like them elsewhere in B & H.

    RHC is a classic and iconic location in Brighton, and I'm glad you featured the red phone box in your tag. I wanted to, but forgot.

    Apologies. I tagged the new location this morning, but a friend took the photo(s). Just waiting on him to send me a few samples so I can pick which one to post.

    OTOH, if you want a new tag right now, I can post up a photo I took 2 or 3 weeks ago.
