Strengths:    The frame is bombproof! It is very well constructed and handles like a dream. I work as a courier, and this bike takes everything I throw at it. Pavement, gravel, dirt, mud, snow, etc... it can take it all, smoothly and gracefully. There are some that may say that a sealed tubeset is better for the muck, but I think that only leads to internal rusting. Sooner or later, moisture gets into the tubesets, and if the tubes are not sealed, the moisture simply comes out. Those with sealed tubes often get a false sense of security that they won't rust.

Weaknesses:    Nothing I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
Sell you car, and get one of these. If you want a frame that will probably outlast a war, this is the frame for you. Buy it and build it up with some parts laying around, because I guarantee that the frame will outlive those components. This sucka's built to last.

Salsa La Cruz

A local bike shop has one Salsa La Cruz bike in my size left and at a discounted price of a $1000! I have a 2010 Kona Jake that I have been riding that is totally great but I'm really enamored by the Salsa. Especially with the disc brakes that would be great in snowy Brooklyn streets. The catch is t ... Read More »
