      The more I see of Salsa, the sadder I am that I don’t have the market to sell them. Great looking stuff. Again.

      No rack or fender mounts on the Colossal? WTF?

      The main justification for discs on road is better performance in the wet and carrying a load. If we can’t do that on this bike, what’s the point?

      Please tell me this isn’t the final product!

      I road this last night at the Carver Lake Salsa Demo. Yes the TI Mukluk was bombproof but for the dollar value this bike was my favorite of the evening. It handled like gem. Factory gearing etc. was just fine. Handle bars and seat of course are personal but if you can find one and are in the market for a S/S, I can’t say enough about it.
