    Maybe, it was before paint. Jeff Lyon and I were over at Keith's place a while back to look at and critique bare frames. We all though Ross hadn't lost a thing in "retirement." I think there was another frame and a couple stems. It is too bad that you don't see more of his fillet-brazing work. He taught a friend of mine back in the 70s at Santana and was a master of that style of joining from what I've heard.

    Master he is. I got a crash course on brazing from him recently. I was left speechless watching him work!

    Just saw this at retrobike, figured it should go in here. 20 questions with Ross Shafer.

    Salsa

    I had a Salsa frame back in the early nineties, bought it of a friend and think he bought it used to, so I haven't a clue what year frame it was, probably 90-91...

    Anyway, it was a pearl-(metallic?)-white thing w/ handpainted fruits on it in red/green/yelloy, but as I remember it they were very small - the fruits that is, hehe... But seeing the first pic in this thread, I wonder if they were so small as I remember them... Anyone seen one w/ small fruits on it?

    Salsa signed by Employees

    I have been thinking about this for a while and haven't seen anything on it.

    In '92 or '93 I remember seeing a small pic in one of the mags about a Salsa that was signed by all of the members of the Salsa shop. I eventually saw one in a shop in Boulder that summer.

    Does anybody know what I am talking about? Am I right that about this being a Salsa? I looked on MOMBAT to see if there was any info and couldn't find any. I did read through this thread hoping to find something but did not see it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Still hoping to add an Ala Carte to my small collection one day.

    tanks Vlad, to top that off its airsprayed on

    the guy who sprayed it is very talented, does welding and everything. He offered to put a carbon back end in too but i did not have the budget at the time, perhaps in the future tho!

    Trying to date my Ala Carte. I figure it is 1997, but I am trying to narrow things down. The serial is SM2597, it doesn't have have a rear canti/HiteRite tab. The cables are all down tube-routed save the rear brake. Graphics look pretty much like the 97-98 bikes I've found, a la Joe Steel's first bike in post #49.

    1994 SM1343 (scooderdude)
    1994 SM1349 (kpomtb)
    1995 SM2015 (datasurfer)
    1996 SM2281 (kiwijohn)

    joe, jeff, pepperman, or anyone else, have you got your serial numbers handy?

    :edited/added below:

    Perusing the thread, it was interesting to see the same cable routing in '89 as there was in 1998, while in between they seem to have gone with top-tube routing. My frame has a 1 1/8th head tube and is sus corrected to 420mm.

    Pretty sure mine is a 96. I didn't get it until 98 though, still unbuilt.
    It does have a canti hanger, used for a Hite Rite now, and top tube cables.

    Is that based on the number or on the accoutrements? (1 1/8th, no hanger, downtube cables, etc)

    At the urging of ... er ... can't remember your name ... here's my La Raza. I *think* it's a 1992, although it could be a 1993. I'm the original owner, hence my fuzzy memory.

    I can't remember how they sized them, I usually ride a 53cm road bike, this one is 50cm?

    I was the "head mechanic/buyer for cool things", and my shop had sold a few dozen stems, a half dozen Jellybean'ed Alacartes, a truckload of bar ends, etc. This was before email, so Ross and I would talk on the phone from time to time. (SUPER nice guy, would love to have another margarita with him someday!) I was really excited by the (at the time very odd) idea of a sloping top tube road bike, but hated the idea of an aluminum fork. (I grew up on steel.) Ross agreed to build me a Reynold 531c fork, with a flat crown, and if I am not mistaken a rifled Columbus steerer. I had to agree to not tell any potential customers that this was the source of the fork. He really did not feel like building any forks at that point. (Hence the Bontrager/Ritchey choice on the MTB's?)

    The other odd bits about mine, was that Ross talked me into leaving the fender eyelets on the frame/fork. (Most steel dropouts come with them, and the builder files them off.) He said it's only a couple of grams, and I might be happy to have them when at some point down the line it became my beater bike. (Ha! ) There is also a 1/4 ball bearing brazed to the seat tube to function as a pump peg, which has mainly served to remind me to NEVER clamp the bike in a stand by the tube. Seriously - I've had nightmares about mashing that BB into the tube!

    They were a size specific mix of Columbus tube sets at this point I think.

    The parts were my eclectic mix. Superbe Pro, Dura Ace, Mavic SSC, White Ind, Syncros, Nitto, and a paychecks worth of SRP bolts.

    Here she is, still sitting pretty even without air in the tires:

    La Raza serial number SR1211-65. I bought it used around 2002, but I don't know when the frame was built. Anybody here have a guess?

    I bought my La Raza new in 95. It's serial # is SR1580, no additional numbers or dashes. It shipped from the factory on 3/10/95.

    Still my only road bike. Just finished a nice little spin on it this morning, and rode it on an MS150 last weekend. It may be the only bike I don't have any pictures of. I'll have to snap a few later.

    To the best of my knowledge, Salsa really didn't number their bikes with the intent of one being able to identify year or month of manufacture. All I know is the S is for Salsa, and the R, in your case, is for Road.

    I was considering a repaint of my La Raza, and was exchanging emails with someone over at "New Salsa". It just kind of petered out, no decals, no joy. It seemed as though they might have some decals around, but .... eh ... who knows?

    You might have better luck than I did.

    I'd really like some new stem decals, and thought I had some packed away. Turns out I don't.

    You've got the frame though, that's the hard part!

    I might have a headtube decal left. These would be the original from 1982. not sure if there was a change in the design.

    When this thread was first started I walked away from the possible purchase of this bike. Since then I've acquired the bike.

    The story is it was built for a close friend of Ross' as a wedding present. It's one of the fabled first 6. My guess is #6 as it's the smallest and has a different seat tube clamp to accommodate the shorter size. It was repainted by Ross several years ago with original decals and the original parts were used for the build.

    I'd not seen one of these around, so I decided to scan mine.

    Sorry for the coffee stains, I had to read through the manual a couple of times to get the proper technique down.

    Does anyone know the seatpost size that a middle-ish 90's AlaCarte would use?

    My foggy old brain can't remember between the two likely diameters. (One of which is wrong, so I'll just bite my tongue.) Thx!

    Salsa Moto SL #52. Took a couple shots of it on a ride yesterday. Note the real early Wolber Super Champion rims rolled down by Keith and the famous fillets by Ross.

    link from mombat

    3rd paragraph or above the helmet panties info mentions the brake design.
    I assume the brakes never made it out of the prototype phase.
    Anybody?

    So I've looked thru this thread trying to get a conclusive idea on "correct" decal layout for my generation Salsa and was wondering if anyone here can tell me the for-sure's. I picked up what I was told was a 93 Salsa but the serial number seems lower than the other one's I've seen listed (SM668). Anyway, the seller also provided me with replacement frame decals, a black set & a white set as well as a few others, and I just wanted to know which were correct to use for that time period. There were some Ala Carte top-tube decals in the envelope but I haven't seen those on any of the older frames, and there were no good pics of the little American flag decal for the non-drive chain stay either. Can anyone tell me when they started using those decals and if they'll be correct for my Salsa? Frame has some decent patina but also has a few rough spots and since I have the decals a respray may be the call.

    Salsa

    I have SM688. This should clear anything up. I believe it is a 90 or 91 most likely a 90. I am going to get it powder coated sometime this year. 6 decals total. No ala carte decal. Crappy pics below.
    Down Tube Decal

    Head Tube Decal

    Flag Decal top of seat tube

    Tubing decal by BB on Seat Tube

    Made in USA decal on non drive side chainstay


    My Salsa came with a Bianchi Tange fork. Found a NOS Switchblade, waiting for a P10. Very rough paint.

    Was this the one that was on KSL? Cool pick-up. Looked nice, but it was too small for me.

    That's the one. I was in pretty decent shape, just needs a complete overhaul (esp the fork that was on it).

    My vintage Salsa stuff.

    1996 La Raza. The UC Berkeley Cycling team was sponsored by Salsa so I got the frame at a big discount. Took so long to get that I only got to ride it in one race. I don't ride it much anymore. I might strip it down and use the parts to build a 'cross bike. Then put the frame up on the wall as art. Serial number is 2049. Size is 45 (50).


    I don't think many of the new Salsa frames have one of these stickers anymore


    I'm not a beer drinker but I couldn't pass this up when I saw it.


    One of these has already been posted. I don't use it anymore. If anyone wants it, make me an offer.
    I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

    I would love to see a picture of that bike. I like what BG has done for bicycling and wish he got more recognition today for his efforts. I find it annoying that Vanilla has a huge waiting list and somebody like Bruce could use a few more orders. I'm looking forward to getting some tires from him though. Thank you, Bruce Gordon!

    I love the orange La Raza. Get me a an orange B17 and raise those bars a couple of inches above the seat....not too dorky.

    I heard that Salsa made a flask/holder. Any pics? Where can I buy one?

    I need to have access to hard liquor on my rides.

    That bike is silly cool. Belongs to a forum member and can't wait for him to post it up himself although he's kinda shy about these things.
