Salsa Ala'carte SS. Made of steel and in Ca. Kinda bling and fast as shit. If I rode it. Which I dont. But will soon. I prommise.
My old Intense Spyder (old school, mac strut/short travel) Converted to a 1 speed by me. In my head I thought that a 24 pound full suspension single speed would be bitchen. And it was. For a minute. Then I just started riding the Salsa again. Now I don't ride at all.
Ok, Things have changed. I'm riding again. A lot. It's bitchen. Both bikes are seing some good miles. The Salsa is just as fast as I remeber it, if not faster. The Intense is now an 8 spd. I'm gonna go cook some chicken now.
