    Salsa Caballero

    Anyone own or seen or tried one of Salsa's FS bikes? Looks good on paper. Anyone know where it's made? Is there an SPV or similar tech rear shock option? (Salsa's website lists only the SID rear shock) Thanks much! Steve

    Taiwan (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    I've had a frame in my hands, and the Caballero is well built and light!! I wound up with a very different rig, but if Salsa had produced an XL with a decent top tube on it, I'd have bought one. Same problem with their awesome scandium singlespeed...too short across the top for me.

    Awesome frame! QBP offers it with a 5th element air option, i would ask your LBS if they order from them. If you can get a 2003 model I would do it. It's the exact same frame, just different paint. That's what a Salsa rep told me at least. I was minutes away from buying this frame, but ended up getting a RockyMountain Element Sc TO.

    You'll be more than happy with the Caballero, and it's a helluva lot less $ than comparable frames.

    I was really tempted to get one of these earlier in the year, but the top tube was just too short, so make sure you check that out before buying.
