    SS Salsa Al Carte back in the dirt after almost 20 years!

    I don't know much about this bike. But I was told from my friend that I got it from 17 years ago, not to get rid of it.
    So after countless moves and kids. I decided to get it ride-able again. I added some Carver forks single brake lever, and some platform petal to keep it simple. She sits at just under 22lbs.

    this is the closest thing I could find on this bike. Mine is #sm2595

    Somebody on here posted some of their older pics of one, I think it was green. I concur with your friend, it's a keeper.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
