I was going to try my luck this month, although that Salsa will make my entry look like a pile of scrap iron! It's bloody gorgeous.



al. :D

Have to agree, thats a very nice looking bike, has it got a thread?


Oh sorry forgot to answer this question.
no it hasn´t unfortunatly. I had a Bontrager Race, i swapped frames with. Most of the parts came from that Bonti. I only changed a few parts i thought got better with a Salsa. And that is what's the result.
thanks
cheers Kay

A high standard start, all 3 are worthy winners, undecided on my favourite as of yet.. leaning to the Yeti, but the brodie is lovely too... Will depend on my mood come voting time.. could be the Salsa! I was mulling over whether to enter a bike myself, definitely will be out of my depth with this bunch, so probably little point!
