    dude I've been having this build in my mind for days for a side project over my pacer!
    I even named it "Stealthroller" too
    although in my mind spokes and crankset were black too
    great bike celt

    I guess I'll do something anti-stealth now

    Nice build. But you forgot a brake and a hangy down thing in the rear.

    Seriously, sweet rig.

    Apart from the missing rear brake: nice ride.

    You could remove the rim stickers for even more stealthyness.
    Ride more!

    Is that a White Industries Eno in back? Very nice item to have on there.

    Very nice, your build looks very close to one I had some last summer (bullhorns, dos-eno, Thompson stem and post, mks pedals, etc). My steamroller also is my only road bike, alas it doesnt get as much seat time as it deserves. Ive since changed it up with touring tires, more upright bars (fsa metropolis) instead of bullhorns in an attempt to make it more comfortable and casual. I thought I'd ride it more since modding, I love looking at it but still barely ride it... Sigh.

    Btw, love ur floors! slate?

    Expensive, but worth the investment. I have one on my Surly 1x1 when running in single speed mountain mode (32x20) for the single track and fire roads. Seems pretty freakiní bulletproof so far, and seemingly impervious to mud/water/muck contamination.

    Put a rear brake on it so people will think you actually ride your bike.

    Don't need a rear brake.

    "Surly" is the name of the forum, shouldn't be the attitude of it's contributors.

    Well, enjoy not riding your bike. It'll look great in front of the coffee shop.

    LOL, you guys are harsh. At least he’s got the smarts to put a rather high-end $90 freewheel (White Industries Eno, perhaps the highest end one out there) on it—an important piece of equipment yet not as crucial as a rear brake. Yeah, I, too, would recommend a rear brake, but (generally) these fixed/single dudes seem to use those high-wear rear tires made for doing long skids in order to slow down their bikes. To each their own. I just hope there’s no faggy chick pants being worn, or Bustin Jieber haircuts and pubestaches.

    I build all my bikes to look great in front of coffee shops. You mean...you can RIDE these things?

    And a rear brake too!

    I recently flopped over to free- from fixed- and it's real eye-opener how much more I use that rear brake (I told myself I wasn't really braking w/ my legs/chain but I guess even w/o epic skidddzzzz I was doing a lot of speed modulation)

    Thanks,

    Don't ride it much, as I have trouble crashing into people. Usually sits in front of my favorite coffee shop.

    Nice bike, though not sure how Surly, Thomson, Cane Creek, Deda, White Industries, Chris King, Crank Brothers = 'it isn't much'
