|I am looking at getting a fixed gear and some my decision rests on the headset as I really dislike threaded setups as I have always found them to be flexy compared to other options out there. But I don't know what the difference is between threaded and threadedless. I basically understand threadless and like that best, but what do the other mean? Thanks for your help.|

|You don't like threaded,and understand threadless,and there is no THREADEDLESS that I know of.That should take care of it.|

|They list the steamroller as being 1" threadEDless. I thought they were the same thing or that threadedless didn't exist, but I've seen it as spec a few places. Is it just a typo on Surly's site, or is there really a difference? I'm just asking a confused question, thanks for your help in setting me straight.|

|That Steamroller is awesome. One of the best I've seen. If I could set mine up that way, I would be 100% go on that frame. How did they switch the threaded to threadless? Thought if you switched you had to change the fork, but the fork is the same. I think that is the route to my Fixiephoria. Thanks SS-NYC.|

|I love this shop. They have already built 2 bikes for me. They cater to messengers and support the local track scene. The owner/manager/mechanic/track racer at the shop has even written a book about clasic bikes.
My bikes from them:
I am not sure if I am going to get a Surly Steamroller or Van Dessel Country Road Bob from them next since my Motobecane single-speed just got bent in half by a truck or car while it was locked up on the street.
Anyway, good luck!
