Positive rise is a big no no in the road bike forum, not here? J/K.
Small 16.5 I think but still has a 23" top tube.
thanks for the compliment

Don't like them. I like the 20mm TA a lot but the valving blows. The absolute adjustment is six clicks and three are lockout. There is no bottoming dampeners and the stroke has no progressiveness. So basically you can bottom the fork pretty easily and it dives. I have a Fox Talas on the other bike and it is hands down a better fork. The Manitou is very stiff and light though. 3.8pounds with the TA. I only paid $250 for it so I shouldn't complain too much.
Nice........did you know your stem is upside down?
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
The bike is optimized for a 80mm fork but I got a deal on a 100mm fork. When I was test riding it the front end felt a little high so I flipped the stem. The seat is about 5mm lower now too, so the geometry is slightly less wild looking.
Next time I will take the pictures with it normal and flip it afterward for my my comfort, to not offend.
nice looking salsa! is it around 21.4 pounds or thereabouts?
21.4 pounds FTW!!
