When a simple bike is done right, every ride puts a smile on your face. Surly's Steamroller is one such bike. It started long ago with the idea of using a track bike as a quick-getaway machine in urban landscapes and has evolved into the slightly more road-oriented, steel-framed city skipper it is today. The Steamroller is built from 4130 chromoly for durability and pleasant ride qualities, and trades Surly's typical commuter-friendly touches for straightforward performance. Dodge potholes, take impromptu shortcuts, and carve your way through the downtown hustle – it's full-on and flat-out when you're Steamrollin'.
