must admit the Salsa wasn't built to be "bling" or for special showing on this site .... it's been my bike since new - 1990 ish ... and the parts have kinda evolved ....there are a few purple bits if you look closely .... the skewers are the original red,gold and green Salsa ones .... the bars and stem are Salsa ...the seat is Ritchey as are the brake leavers .... the seatpost is Syncros gorilla series ...... the frame is original - never been resprayed as i think it would ruin it ...... as for the forks ....at the time Pace RC-35AB were almost as cool as you got with all that carbon fibre .... and they suited my riding style much more than Mag-21's which had more travel but much more flex ! I personally voted for the Boulder ....

I think this is the Broxa Forest Downhill Nat Champs (I recognise that netting cos I fell in it about 15 minutes after this pic!) - bike's too muddy and moving too fast to help I guess... 8) Ahhh - happy days! When one bike was all you needed...

Or to official knowledge that this is the only one to have ever entered the country.

Or that is is the actual frame from the bike featured in Cycling plus circa summer 1993 (winning best bike) and again in the december 1993 issue.


And the guys are voting for a Lava Dome???

Philistines.

Dont worry I voted Kona Hilts.

500 quid mass produced bike holding itself up against the boutique bikes.

Who would have thought :P
