We have Salsa Mukluks available for a while anyway – what makes them good?
Aluminium frame, 170mm rear axle spacing, 135 front, room for 4.8″ Big Fat Larry’s (which we have arriving next week) and they’re sparkly blue. Ace!

You build one, then another comes along. Similar to the Vaya below, here’s a Singular Peregrine, with 105, Avid brakes and super sturdy Hope/Halo wheelset.

Here’s an odd one…

A long standing customer finally decided that he really should have two bikes for his commute, one workhorse and one special bike. Here’s the special one.
It’s a Salsa Vaya, with super sturdy wheels, 105 running gear, Ultegra flat bar shifters, Avid BB7 brakes and I reckon it looks superb. Hope he’s happy with it!

Spend your time wisely

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

A man who I’m proud to consider a friend died unexpectedly on Sunday 9/10/11.
Chris Mearns was the very definition of a gentleman and a scholar, always up for a ride, ready to discuss any topic with a breadth of knowledge that was frankly staggering, the kind of bloke who spent his days with a twinkle in his eye and a pair of Blundstone’s on his feet.

He died of a heart attack, riding his bike with pals.

Spend your time wisely people, there’s not enough of it to go around.

RIP Chris, you will be long remembered.
