I am so jealous, I love the new Salsa disc bikes.
Thanks...I dig the bike very much. I'm loving the wheels as well...
Not hydraulic...Avid BB-7 Road cable actuated... Nevertheless, I love them, stop me on a dime and I'm 205# @ 5'10"...
The groupset is Ultegra 6700... CX70 46t/36t chainset, 12-30 cassette in the rear... I am pondering a wee bit lower gearing due to some short but steep climbs in my area... I have one hill .3 miles long that averages 13% and pitches to 24-29% at certain points, I caught some leaves on it my last climb, rear tire slipped and after my momentum was gone I was cooked...A few other short but nasty ones as well on trails that just happen to be on very convenient routes...
or I should just HTFU...lmao

Yeah. I agree. Nice looking bike.
Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
1997 GT Edge! Made in the USA
Polished Ti with DA7700, Cinelli Ti grammo stem, Campy Chorus Ti post, Ti rail Selle Italia saddle, with a 1" CK to finish it off...
This is my daily rider!
Talk about a blast from the past nice!
Resized.jpgTitanium Bianchi: Just picked it up today at a local swap meet. The picture is how it was purchased, probably going to put my Mavic Ksyrium SL's on it tomorrow.
This is my first post so I am sorry that the picture is so small.
My pride and joy.
Don't worry about old age; it doesn't last that long.
curious about weight.
with ultegra, what kind of weights are your bikes?
coasting, few quotes are worthy of him, and of those, even fewer printable in a family forum......quote 3alarmer
No @coasting, you should stay 100% as you are right now, don't change a thing....quote Heathpack
Mine is at 19.5 lbs. Of course my frame is larger than most and I have a triple.
My Merlin with Record 10 and Mavic Kysriym (sp) SL wheels at 60 cm is 17.6
I don't know what mine weighs but it's my favorite ride, and I have and have had some nice carbon ones...
1994 model updated with Shimano 5700 and ROL Volant wheels.
I have already shown this in a separate thread, but it seems like it belongs here too. My redecorated Everti Falcon:
