The Steamroller is the bicycle in its simplest form — the fixie. You may be thinking, “Fixies are so 2008” or “All the blogs I read say I should like something different now.” Well, the Steamroller is different. Built for the streets, it has a geometry that’s closer to that of a road bike than a true track bike. Couple that with its double-butted 4130 CroMoly steel construction and 38c tire clearance and you have yourself a lively and resilient ride that can handle potholes, grass shortcuts, urban trails, and back alleys like a champ.
Giant's Omnium is built to produce as much speed as possible in the velodrome. This pure-bred track racing machine is made with stiff, aerodynamic and lightweight aluminum tubing. The OverDrive steerer tube and purpose-built aerodynamic fork offer incredible front-end stiffness and precision for out-of-the-saddle sprints. There are no brake bosses, no bottle mounts, no frills — just pure performance to beat the competition and the clock. - ALUXX SL-grade aero track frame with Giant Vector composite seatpost - Advanced-grade composite fork with alloy OverDrive steerer - Giant SL Aero wheelset with Giant P-SLR1 tires - SRAM Omnium track crank with 13, 14, 15, and 16-tooth cogs
The lure of the oval is strong, and Masi's Speciale Sprint was purpose built to channel the thunder of the boards. A double-butted chromoly frame and lugged fork gives the nod to tradition but features the best that modern metallurgy can offer for a light, stiff, and sprint-worthy frame. Classically-laced Weinmann rims and super-supple Clement Strada tires are at their best when they're leaned hard into a turn. Decked out with Masi track components and a highly efficient two-piece aluminum crank, the Speciale Sprint is one bike that won't settle for second place.
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. You get a fixed/free rear hub and alloy crank with 45/18 gearing, Tektro road caliper brakes, a comfortable Dimension Arc swept-back handlebar, and 700 x 32 Continental Contact tires — everything you need for dodging potholes, taking impromptu shortcuts, and carving your way through the downtown hustle.
