    Good job! Mas Salsa Por Favor (New Sherriff in Town)

    Big thanks to the uber sexy forum regulars that contributed to this build - you know who you are!

    Big Pu$$y (the hot pink Karate Monkey) has been displaced by the Green Masheen in my proper size (XL). Rest assured BP is in good hands that will savage her fiercely. Crappy B'Berry camera picture does not do the El Mariachi paint justice. My rico sauve Casseroll now has a Salsarific stablemate.

    The DT440FR hubs (20MM TA front/10MM bolt-on rear) received some love in the form of new bearings out front and the new dopple engagement pawls in the caboose. Mad props to DT - stunning customer service - they will be getting my bidness on my next wheelset.

    Shake down ride tomorrow AM. Pro ride report post Gnomefest.

    Watch out for your cornholes.

    As you were.

    Das build:

    Frame: XL Salsa El Mariachi
    Fork: 100mm Manipoo Minutia Thru Axle
    Wheels: Gordos + DT440FRs + 20toof Surly Kog
    Krankz: Surly Senor Whirly 185mm + 94 BCD spider + 33teef ring of fire
    Brakes: Hayes Stroker Trail, blanco, 7" front/6" back
    Post: El Padre Limited Edition Turdthruster Masterpiece - lighter and stronger than a rigid Thomson with 3" of glorious un-damped travel
    Bars: Whorishly crashed FSA DH K-Force CF bars...rolling the dice. Have great insurance. YMMV.
    Bits: Green CK HS y spacers, green Salsa seat clamp, green Rogue lock-ons
    Secret: I was Angelina Jolie's first.

    Weaksauce!

    Everybody knows you must have a 34 X 18T to ride manly Mid-West trails!

    That said- Nice sled doode! Wish I was going to be crushing gnome heads with you, but I have a "fishy date" in Yootaw so I can not commiserate wid ya.

    Some day we must cross treads with each other. Roll on!

    Hah! We actually have hills in MN in WI! Also, the gravitational pull of my fat ass helps with nothing other than traction and effort-free descents!

    Ride soon we shall. Gotta be back in Waterloo soon.

    The Thudbuster and wide ass saddle just don't suit that bike well IMHO.

    Good choice in pedals though.

    The only regrets in life, are the risks you didn't take.

    That Thudbuster is a monstrosity of epic proportions on that otherwise svelt build.

    I award you no points.

    One day, before you die and spend eternity somewhere...I want to buy you and build you bicycle. In spite of its indescribable beauty and performance and your incessant thirst for it's bounty, you'll only be able to enjoy it's pleasure temporarily... but perhaps that may be some scrap of comfort when you shuffle off this mortal coil. Probably not, but why not try?

    Please cease and desist on projecting your preference for a heavily chafed/callused taint onto others! Your second chamois and litre of Assos weigh more than the difference between a Thuddie and rigid post! Besides, when you're riding who can actually see the post?
