    Salsa three speed

    When I have to travel far or keep up with my fast friends I have my Salsa. I found a use for an eccentric bb and a der hanger.

    It takes a few seconds to change gears, I like to flip it over.

    A ride I did from Thurston to Dexter Hills and Back

    It's flat with a big hill at the end, too tuff for my little fixie. Most of the way from my house to the hills are relatively flat. I rode the fun way to Dexter, on back country paved roads.

    I shifted to my low gear for the four mile climb up the Eagle Rest rd to guzzle point. I rode the logging rds to Lookout pt and watched the sun set behind Bear mtn.

    I got back to Dexter by dusk and rode home to Thurston in the dark, on empty paved roads


    Monkey hill and the war houser rd.

    Flat empty backroad between Jasper and Dexter

    My three speed, stop and shift design. Issue free, finally.

    Three rings no frt der.

    Bear, Zion and Progress

    They have to have roads to haul the forest away, this pit was used for logging roads, and still is. Nice pit.

    A nice view from the top of the pit of Zion and Bear Mountain.

    Pit of Progress

    Sunset behind Bear Mountain, I still have to ride back to Thurston.

    Getting out of the hills before black dark
