Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Secret Bike Project #1
Well, as promised, here are some pic's of my SBP #1. About 2.5 years ago I bought some Dura Ace high flange track hubs. I had nothing to use them for but thought they were cool and needed to have them. Well with the new Surly Steamroller color I knew what I had to do.
Here's a crank shot. Sugino Messenger crank with Surly SS Chainring.
Went with a lot of Nitto products with this bike. Nitto stem, seatpost, and sweet handlebar (38cm!). Also tossed the Paul E-brake lever on too.
Oh so pretty...and poser material.
More of the sweet bars.
The full thing. I built the hubs on some Velocity Deep V's (super shiny). Rivendell Ruffy Tuffy tires, made by Panasonic. I have 3 Brooks B-17 saddles but went with the racer Swift. We'll see how it goes.
Man I love bikes.
SBPs #2 and #3 will unfold as I know what they are!
