    One Salsa Casseroll, please!

    After getting my current bike measurements recorded and converted to the appropriate frame size, my LBS is ordering me a Salsa Casseroll Triple today. I'm really psyched and glad I spent a while doing research - this really is an ideal bike for the kind of riding I'll be doing.

    If things go smoothly I should have the bike by next weekend. I know the drill and will share plenty of photos when it arrives.

    I thought it was food too, i read a recipe today for bachelor (which is what I am) juevos rancheros which sounds similar to a salsa casseroll. cook some scrambled eggs, cook 2 microwave burritos, cut up the burritos, put the eggs on them, smother in salsa. I know, lots of fat, very unhealthy, but I thought I'd share anyway. honestly, it sounds pretty tasty to me.

    Maybe I'm the only one but I happen to think that painted stem is pretty ugly. Other than that it looks like a nice bike for commuting and similar uses.

    Congrats!!!!!!!!

    My casseroll is currently getting a set of honjo fenders and velo orange rack installed (not entirely an easy process). We can be casseroll amigos after that!

    PS: I would buy one of their painted stems in a heartbeat if they offered it separately. (sorry cooleric1234, you have no taste. )
