anybody familiar with Salsa bikes?

I'm having a little trouble finding detailed specs on Salsa, or even their website. In specific I am researching the Salsa Caballero. Any help or links appreciated...

Mike

a mate just recently bought one to replace his Mokomoko. He is pretty happy with it. XTR, Fox Terralogics and Crossmax wheels

I spent a long weekend riding a Salsa Caballero over very rocky terrain in Nevada. I loved the bike. It did everything well. It had a very balanced feel and put me in a comfortable position. I ride aggressive cross country and this bike was forgiving when I picked a bad line. It tracked well and climbed quickly. I never pushed the bike hard on the downhills because the rear end bounced around a bit. That may have due to the shock setup, but I never got it right. The new 04 paint job is killer.
