    my new salsa

    hello i thought that i would post this new frame i built up. Here in chicago it is still way to nasty out for the brand new bike so i am sticking to my single speed for the winter but i do loose sleep almost every night thinking about riding this spring. well here is the pic. my question is how goofy will it look with one grey and one black both powdercoated crank arms? they are both Next race face arms.

    Cool bike, but where do you ride in Chicago? I have a cousin there and that place is FLAT!

    Oooo, I came so close to getting a Bandito last month. Great pic! Too bad I have short legs. I had standover height issues with the frame. I think it'd look fine with two different colored crank arms. It'd be unique .

    I ride mostly in Michigan. i am here in chicago for school. any rides with hills involved must be to the suburbs. i usually stick to me road bikes in the city however since the bike was so new i just had to bring it along to ride a few times.

    People, for the last time it's "Brake" not "Break". How is it we know so much about bike's and so little about spelling?

    Ok, I'm done. Nice ride!!

    I dunno, how is it so many people use apostrophes for the plural? (it's bikes, not bike's)

    That would be "bikes" and not "bike's."

    How is it we know so much about bikes and so little about punctuation?

    Pile on!

    While we're at it, it's "lose" sleep, not "loose".

    Gorgeous bike - but it's way too clean!

    i'll work on the dirt part, right now i am concerned about the salt here in chicago. here is the other ride i am using for the winter. as you can see it is still wet from the morning ride to work. where the windchill was -5.

    also if anyone here knows of midwest bike companies that are looking for mechanical engineering interns i am looking for summer work. i am 24 cr hours away from graduating.

    Deal for you

    I've got King wheelset with black hubs and spokes, but the rear Mavic 317 rim is gray, and the front 317 is black. They'll match your whacky cranks perfectly.

    nice bandito

    i was considering one myself, until my LBS cut me a good deal on the Caballero...my riding buddy built one up and he loves it! at first we had concerns about fitting his uber-dependable Z1 BAM on it- making the front end too high etc., but apparently it rides pretty well.

    will post pics of his ride soon...more Salsa bikes in the link in my signature
