It's beyond belief someone who actively rides a bicycle would suggest hitting/nudging/whatever them with their bumpers. I'm sure he's joking but really, it was in very poor taste.

Something felt a bit funny in the front end.....


I actually went bombing down a pot holed canyon rode with it like that.

Salsa said I was out of warranty but quietly replaced it anyway. I figured the 6 year old frame had about 15k miles on it.

Can't see the pics for some reason, but the link took me to your SmugMug.





Hopefully that works.

Yikes! Glad it held during your bomb run.

Came down laurel canyon (most screwed up road in LA) with it like that.

I'm thinking Ti with a carbon fork in the future

Salsa Casserolle

Ironic, they had a recall on the matching stem a few years ago.
Beautiful stem that they said may crack.

WOW on that fork. I know they built the casserolle fork to be road only but come on! It also doesn't look like you were trying to moto that thing either. I am not suprised they quietly took care of you but that shouldn't ever happen.

Saying that
I do like the Salsa guys and even work with the wife of one of them. It's cool seeing them 'testing' new stuff on the trails out my back door as I've seen some of the new stuff before it was anywhere near production.

I suggested nothing of the sort. Read the post(s) above mine: I was referring to the damage done to the bumper of a Prius in a link someone posted.

You're nuts. I'd never ride the hilly part of Laurel simply because the pavement is so bad, nevermind the traffic. Beverly Glen is on my usual commute and it's bad enough.

if you broke a steel fork, don't even THINK of carbon fiber. if you do, inspect it very closely every few weeks for microcracks.

I hate casseroles so much that I keep a second one as back up :wink

Looking at the Salsa Vaya ti for a custom build, maybe time for discs.
Hard to get a ti frame and yet still have a steel fork.

Maybe ill just stop kidding myself and get a seven expat...it IS my car. Atleast I can sell it to the wife that way!

heh. reading the 'new bike' packet that came with this floor model 2010 Specialized Globe Vienna 2 (a 700x35c hybrid, with an alloy frame, steel forks), and it says, 100kg maximum rider weight for most Specialized bikes.

I'm a nickle over that. what are really big guys supposed to do?

[this is purely rhetorical, I'm sure this bike will be fine, and I hope to use it to get under 100kg, target is 80kg.]

[Word up, the cracks that break that plastic fork will never be seen until you're looking at the pieces through a bloody face.
NDI, aka x-ray is the onyl way to see it before you experience it.

I don't know. Things happen. *shrug*

Salsa seem to be a good group of people, by their blog.
