A bit disappointing that the only 26ers Salsa do now are fatbikes.

Maybe I should buy this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Salsa-Ala-Car ... 43ac70ed19

Or maybe not, as I'm not loaded or completely batshit mental.

that is a tad overpriced Taz :)

I quite liked the name horsethief as there is a song I liked called "you stole my wife you horsethief" I know it is unrelated to Salsa though other than a loose "Western/Mexican/cowboy" reference. Salsa as a brand are really just that now, the heritage with them (and most other old brands) has gone, they make good bikes as do loads of companies now, hanging up over a name when the original name was sold on anyway seems daft. I think Ross wouldn't care so much, the name made him some money and let him do his own thing, and although I'm not sure he owns it, soulcraft is a much cooler name.

I just used that size calculator and even the small horse thief has too big a standover for me.

Salsa Horsethief (fingers crossed) ordered from Triton cycles who allegedly have a habit of not keeping on top of their stock levels.

Should look something like this.

I quite like the name anaw, has naebody herd of a Horsethief?

Gazz this will fill the burlier bike shoes, Pugsley for fun and bikepacking, Scandal for most things and a bit of racing and this for big days oot, like doing the Munro's and Torridon for instance, also for the Italy trip and a few other things I've in mind for the future.

That'll pretty much make up my modern 'stable' :oops: Everyting else is up for the chop, Fire eye, Azonic, Kona King, Kuwahara, and probably a load more I cannae remember. Retro keepers are the two FATs, Ritchey and Ibis. The Vicious is somewhere inbetween but its staying, need at least one singlespeed!!
