    Do you have gears on that 1X1? Is it a Nexus or Alfine hub? Could I do this to my SS on the cheap?

    Looks great - I love Surlys...

    It's a saint derailleur, mounts directly to the axle. You could most certainly do this on the $250 range with an Alfine (that will soon have 11 gears). You could also use DMR chain-tugs which have a built in derailleur hanger, so you can use your normal equipment.

    PM me if you have any questions on set up, I have some chainstay cable clamps left too if you don't want to run full length cable housing.

    My Pacer (up there ^^ with Zipps on it) would just fit 34mm Maxxis Raze tyres inside the Record brake calipers - there wasn't much room for mud but it was ridable. 28s were no problem at all. If you can deal with the weight of the Pacer it's a great frame and it rides really well.
    Thanks! I had it repainted after Virgin America dented the downtube, and I had to roll out the tube. It's just basic white with the basic white decals. I'll post a pic of how it's regularly built up as a townie soon.

    This is still a project in progress. My 650b "Rollercoaster".



    Steamroller with a Nexus8 coaster, dynamo front hub (though not running anything...yet).

    I've also owned a Pug.

    That Steamroller is amazing. Coaster brake is a great idea for the 650b conversion... no need to deal with silly-long brake calipers.

    What size 650b tires are you running? Any idea if you could fit 42's?

    Just wish the Steamrollers had better provisions for fenders...
    I'd sell a lot more of them!

    It is running the 38mm Col De La Vie Panaracers, but there's room for far wider. Unfortunately there's a big gap between the widest 650b road and 27.5 MTB tires for availability. I'd love to run an inverted tread 45mm, but just can't find one.

    The coaster is the one thing I regret. The front disc is plenty strong. Just wish I'd gone with the handbrake for the rear, which is in the works and made apparent by the dummy lever.

    This one will be getting handmade fenders. It'll take a bit of doing, but I knew what I was getting into. It will be integrated with the rear rack, as it should be.

    The Fatty Rumpkin is an inverted tread 42, and despite a little tread buzz I'd rather ride those than CdlV's. Pretty cheap for 650b's, too.

    My Surly Travelers Check. Fun bike, great as an all around and with the added bonus of being able to travel with it. Simple setup, single speed, surly hubs, delgado wheels, H-bars, brooks grips, and egg beaters.

    Yes, I've looked those over too. I have room for up to a 50mm tire, though that's pushing it. Schwalbe makes a true 45mm tire available at the Rivendell site. While very cheap, they're also very heavy. Once I'm done with the DdlV's I may go for the Rumpkins or Grand Bois on a wider 27.5er rim. Did I mention I'm a tall guy?

    First up is my "tuxedo blue" Surly Pacer. Frame is circa 2003, bought on closeout from Momovelo to replace a too-small Stowe with a cracked dropout.

    Originally built with mostly 8-speed 105-SC stuff. Switched over to Campy Ergo sometime in 2006. It now wears a hodge podge of 10 speed Campy parts with downtube levers and gutted Ergo's. It's always had red wheels... don't really know why. Velo Orange fenders will be installed sometime in the near future.

    This bike never fails to make me happy. It's my go-to for most road rides. Races pretty well, too.

    My other Surly is a "charcoal grey" Steamroller. Frame is circa 2005, bought from Campus Cyclery in Cincinnati to replace my 80's Trek 400 conversion with a cracked dropout (see a trend?)

    This bike is on its second steel fork, third wheelset, fourth pair of cranks, and ?th cockpit. Usually wears drop bars and 25's, but it's currently set up with flat bars, fenders, and 32mm T-Servs for winter commuting. Wheels are XT hubs with bolt-on cog and Delgado Cross rims. Beefy.

    While this bike is primarily used for year-round commuting, it's seen its share of long rides and a few races.
