Are you still satisfied with this fork arrangement? I've seen both an LHT fork and a Straggler fork used in the same way. I love my Steamroller but want to do a similar upgrade. With the 26" LHT fork is there still Fender clearance when you throw a 700 on it?

I'm very satisfied with the fork, I don't use front fender, but I think that there's plenty of room for fender if you use ~32c tyres as me, you can see how my looks like in this album https://imgur.com/a/03s0G
The 26" LHT fork is 1mm longer then the original Steamroller fork, so it should work fine. The Straggler is 5mm longer if I remember correctly, so you're gonna feel a bit change of height in the cockpit imho, but also should work just fine.

How's it handle with the Disc Trucker fork? Considerable change in offset there. I'm interested, because I've thought about doing the same thing.

Well it's not a considerable at all, it's about 5mm difference in rake and 2mm in axle-to-crown IIRC, so the geometry kept almost as original. Anyway, I ride for quite some time with it and I love it!

What size BB do you use on your 2015
steamroller?

It's a standard GXP 68mm english thread BB, and it's a perfect chainline with my Miche Primato hub.

Hey, thank you! There's just enough clearance without spacers, approx. 5mm, but this is enough.
