    Salsa Infierno

    Mike did a great job installing a shorter BB spindle while preserving the original grease-guard bearings. Thanks Mike!

    Thanks to Sky at VeloCult for making this one available, and especially to Ross (aka Scoboni) for building such terrific bikes back in the day...

    More pics of the bike here.

    It's not a fashion accessory. It works by saving your wrists from punishment. It transforms your position on the bike..
    again: it's not about looks. It's about function.

    I understand, which is why I said drop bars look wrong, in my opinion. As much as we may value function in our bikes, you can't deny that the looks of our bikes play a role in getting us psyched to ride.

    I believe technically they're called "off-road drops (or dropbars)".

    Done wrong I'll agree they can look pretty silly on an mtb. Done right...nothing is more perfect.

    Fantastic bike B! Don't know how I missed your repost of this.

    So...is it a touch too big for you? Also, do you prefer to run your brakes that far up the bars?

    Again, beautiful bike.

    This bike actually fits better than any of my other bikes...climbing out of the saddle feels less cramped than my dropbar Ibis (despite the fact that one was custom built for me).

    The bike is a tad shorter and steeper than the Ibis but the difference in handling is quite apparent - so light and quick on the front end. Between the weight-weenie wheel build and the tight geometry, the bike is just an absolute pleasure to ride.

    Not sure if the hoods are higher than normal, or maybe the bar is just canted pretty high so that the drops point at the rear axle. 90% of my climbing is on the hoods and that position feels dialed in.

    Another serial number question. I just bought an old Salsa CX bike.....serial number SM 2350. Where can I get info on this bike?

    It's been modified at some point by Chris Kelly for disc brakes and re-powdercoated lime green. Also has a Kelly fork for the disc brakes. Great bike and in great shape, but I'm just curious on the tubing and date made.

    Also, would this be called a La Cruz because it doesn't have a name on it.

    Pics to come!

    La Cruz

    Your bike would be a La Cruz. The only info I have seen would be on mombat and this thread. As for the year it is a 97 or 98.

    Built in July of 1997 (info courtesy of Sean at Soulcraft.....thanks!)

    Modified by Chris Kelly's shop at some point and it's his fork. 1" threadless and daylights of tire clearance. I was able to fit a knobby 650b tire front and back on this thing. I'm still messing with the set-up so I don't have the bar tape on yet. Great ride so far! Love it!! Goes great with my "newer" orange La Cruz.

    I Know It's a...

    road bike...



    But she IS a Salsa La Raza, and she DOES have a Rock Shox product on her along with an XT front derailleur, so that counts, right?

    1994 48cm La Raza with a Rock Shox Paris Roubaix Ti SL fork
    MIxture of Shimano components with Campy (!) rims

    I've ridden her all over the State, on long road rides out of Moab, and all over Denver. She never fails to get a stare or two because of the PR Ti.

    How do you like that fork? Does it work well enough to justify the geometry-fvckery and weight?

    Vlad,

    I've had the fork for almost twenty years, and with the exception of changing the oil and airing the fork up it has been hassle free. Weight wise, it added a pound to the overall weight of the bike; she's definitely not light like today's road bikes but everything today's bike lacks this one has in spades. The fork makes the bike very stable on surfaces like chipseal and irregular road, but when I use the lockout and get out of the pedals she accelerates without skipping a beat. I have to force her a bit into hard corners, but once she's in she stays right there without any tendency to flop.

    BTW I got the fork in the first place as a way to ride while recuperating from a broken clavicle. I wanted to do road as opposed to MTB rides, plus Tchmil had just won Paris Roubaix on the same fork the year before so I said go for it. Ain't been disappointed.

    I just acquired a small (13.5 inch) Ala Carte from Craigslist. I watched the asking price decline over the span of a couple of weeks. I got it for a pretty good price. My wife is short enough to ride it I think. (On the way over to look at it, I could just hear her voice in my head: "But I don't NEED a new bike!")

    It's in pretty decent shape - no rust and no chips in the paint. A mid-level mostly LX build. Columbus Cromor that uses a 26.6 seatpost. Serial number is SM522. I thought that judging from the fork, the bike is a 1995, but then I noticed that it has a roller stem which makes me think it came with a rigid fork originally. The Judy XC's elastomers had crumbled completely and one of the stanchions is severely oxidized, so I'm thinking about replacing it with a rigid fork. What length would be best? About 400mm a-c or so?

    ^ Great score. Frame is probably earlier (91?). Would be right at home with a Bontrager rigid fork up front.

    At 5'4", I ride the same size salsa frame, if that helps...if it doesn't fit, PM me

    Too bad I sold my 1" McMahon titanium fork a few years ago. I went ahead and ordered some aftermarket springs for the Judy. The suspension fork'll do until something better comes along.

    2006 Salsa el Santo

    Got it off Craigslist this summer. Couple moving out of town, went to 29ers.

    Reba front fork
    Manitou swinger rear shock
    SRAM derailers
    Avid mech discs

    Did a tune up, added combo pedals, bash guard and ergon grips.
    This bike is SOOO Much better than I am...

    Old school Ala Carte decals

    Hello fellow Salsa owners. Ben from Salsa referred me to this thread. I'm looking for a set of decals for my Ala Carte (Jelly Bean) and he mentioned that someone on this forum would have a contact for reproduction decals for that era.
    In addition, if you have any Suntour xc pro components to trade or sale for 3 NOS decals. 2 are headtube decals with the chili pepper riding away from the sun on a mtb with yellow tires and thumbies and the "if it ain't moto it's worthless!" motto. The 3rd is a top tube (maybe) decal with Salsa in white font with a Jelly Bean paint rainbow background.

    Picked up an El Kaboing last night. From the various posts I've seen, there were 50-75 of these built?

    Risse shock on it too. Nice. Supposedly not that many were made, but I've seen quite a few other the years, so it feels like more to me.

    Yours looks very clean!

    thanks, ridden by a little old lady on sundays The components are in equally good condition other than a gooey mess inside the fork.

    Serial number is SM1908 - would that make it a '96?

    Short list for me. So cool.

    Beautiful project done so nice. I think the late 80's just look perfect and that Salsa is right on!

    Just two s/n newer than my bike (SM 285)! That might be one of the earliest tig'd Ala Cartes.

    Nice job with paint matching the P10 stem for the dirt drop conversion you showed in the other thread. The bike looks great either way (flat bars or drops).

    Did I read earlier that this frame/fork got repainted?

    At one time I had SM 369 with the same side gussets on the headtube, and it was originally a camo paint job.

    Are those sculpted SunTour arms? Just today I was thinking about what it would take to convert a set to linkage.

    Does Jill still have that bike? Several of us donated parts for that one in a rush to get it done for KV (or was it a Sea Otter ride?).

    I thought it went back to BMC and then back to the original owner.

    The Kite bike was built while Joe shared space in Ross' shop. The brake arms were probably made from the same DiaCompe parts that Ross got from Japan.

    Nice! They're great as drop bar bikes. I just got done rebuilding mine actually. It's ready for another vintage ride.
