It's Alive

After two sessions in the basement, my new bike is alive. Mixing a new frame, fork, wheel set and brakes with old parts off of two other existing bikes my new single speed is now ready to ride. As the pictures show, the bike is a 2008 Salsa El Mariachi with 29" DT Swiss rims and 240 hubs, old Race Face Turbine cranks, Thomson stem and post, King headset, 160mm Avid BB7 mechanical brakes, Jagwire Ripcord cables, and XT levers on a Salsa pro moto 11 degree bar. For those or you who name your bikes and want know the name of my new steel steed; Sorry I don't name me bikes.

Looks good. I almost got one of those last year. If you want to ride SS in the mountains call me. The door is always open, well...most of time.
