The Steamroller came in yesterday afternoon. Hung out and watched it get built. Very sharp, white and black. Put a rear break on it, going to have to find some metal clips from an old bike for the rear cable. Zip ties are ok but clips would be nice. Took it for a test spin....What a blast. Was having planning issues the night before regarding handle bars. Was thinking a flat bar might be better than the Surly Open bar. Pumping up the hill behind the Faribault Library convinced me the open bar is the answer. Had to take it back to the shop, payday is on Friday. It looks nice hanging in the window though.
