I actually built all of Jason's Salsa bikes at Denton Cycles in Newcastle. Jason would regularly walk in with a frame, forks, a bag of new bits and a bag of freshly broken bits. He was such a demanding person to build for but I really really enjoyed it.
Stunning bikes and pics
Did JMC ride smallish frames for his height ?, read somewhere he was over 6' tall, all his bikes look like 18" frames
Jason was about the same height as me, I'm 6ft and those salsa frames were perfect size, nice and long too.
Thanks for posting these pics originalshinkicker really good to see them
I had a shot at making a replica JMC Salsa:
Mine I based on a article in a MBUK Are those STI shifters that are on the last pic you posted? It looks like he changed the spec on his bikes a fair bit trying out new stuff.
I'd like a nice DD for mine but finding one at a time when I have money and one that looks ridable hasn't happened yet! Missed a good one the other day
Got any more pics?
