Salsa El Santo In Da Casa!
Came home for lunch today and was lucky enough to be here when the UPs dude brought my new Salsa El Santo.
I couldn't wait to see it and was not dissapointed. It's freaking SWEET looking!!
The color is soooo sweet. Salsa needs to do a new photo shoot for the web site. The red is so much more vibrant. The lower top tube should be sweet too. Save my boyz from taking any knocks. If the Dos Niner frame is HALF as sweet I'll be freaking geeked.
Here's run down of the parts that will be on the El Santo:
06 El Santo Frame (20" frame with Manitou Swinger 3-Way shock 4")
05 Fox 100 RLT Fork (100mm)
Mavic 717/Shimano XT Wheels
Shimano XT Crank (175mm)
Shimano XT Rear Derailleur (Rapid Rise, long cage)
Shimano XT Front Derailleur
Shimano XT 9 Speed Trigger Shifters
Shimano XT 9 Speed Chain
130mm Ritchey Pro Stem
RaceFace Deus Headset
Dimension Stubs Bar Ends
Hope Mono Mini Disc Brakes and Rotors
Salsa Pro Moto Bar (Flat of course, I don't dig risers.)
Salsa Shaft Post
WTB Rocket V Race Saddle (this one might have to go. Cushy but numbs my nuts. Might go Fizik Nisene if I can get Al to track one down)
Panaracer tires of some sort. Probably Fire Pro 2.1s to start with.
Some cheap ass 26er tubes.
Cat Eye Micro Wireless Computer (I guess I'm part of Kerkove's plan for CatEye world domination)
Sent Big Al my build for the Dos Niner today. I'll be wating on fork for a while The Reba 29er is back ordered at QBP as are my Delgado Rims.
Went to the gym tonight. 1 hour on the SM followed by my weights, for a total of 2 hours. All bike the rest of the week. (Yesssss).
That's it. Later.
