I wish one of the shops around here would stock at least some of Salsa's product. Closest "dealer" is 100 miles away and they don't keep/order many. I have a weakness for orange, too.

Furley and Roper
 
If you like the Salsa Vaya you may like these as well.

4:11 on the bike today. Ugh am I tired.

Buddy of mine is in town from southern France where he's a Cat 1. What we did today was a little toodle by his standards, but a decent ride for the rest of us. :nod

I've got a front Chris King in 28h, but it is green. The matching rear is 135mm 32 h, unfortunately.

both those bikes, on the cross section photo on their page, it looks like there's something hanging between the handlebars that looks like one of those wretched sissybrake levers so common on late 70s mass market '10-speeds'

wtf?


edit: oh, I see, they are a 2nd set of Tekro brake levers for when you're riding on the top bars. huh. still kinda WTF.

They were the first things to go in the bin on my cx bike.

zippy 11-09-2011 05:18 AM

yeah not sure why they have those installed on some cx bikes.

I usually ride , with my hands, on the brake hoods any how.?

They were "in" for a while about 7-10 years ago.

Just got in from about an hour exactly of riding. Warmed up 15min, did a set of pyramid intervals 1on/off thru 4 on/off and back down, then cooled down.

Traded a buddy my Turbomatic 4 for his Romin. Romin's mo bettah. Who's got a black one they wanna trade out something for? :ear

The only problem with the saddle compared to the Turbomatic is that it isn't built the same. My measurements don't work. :bluduh Hafta 'feel' it. :baldy I *think* its a cm shorter front to back so I just moved it back on the seatpost about that much. We'll see tomorrow.

When I worked in prosthetics, I had the privilege once of fitting <a href="http://www.scottrigsby.com/">Scott Rigsby</a>, the first double amputee to finish an iron man.Yes, he had special leg attachments to allow him to clip in & out.
