Another Project – Salsa Pistola

September 16, 2008

I’m working on this tonight. Pretty fun. I’ve ridden this bike a bit and now I’m tearing this down tonight and rebuilding it with some specific component specifications. This is the before shot.

Can’t wait to feature the finished bike because this build is sweet. I did install the swanky Handspun custom wheel set.

I’m taking this bike to Colorado later this week on my way to Interbike, the annual bike industry trade show. More on that later.

Back to the work shop.

    man I love how “clean” the lines on a steel bike look. Sweet color too!

    GNAT, what size is that Pistola and how tall are you? I’m thinking a 51cm would fit me (6′ w/33″ inseam)? I usually ride a 57cm – 58cm traditional roadie…

    James, I’m just a hair shorter with you with just under a 31 inseam. You should ride the 51 which has a 58 effective TT.

    Yo Jason- When’s this bike being released, and what do you expect MSRP to be? On a side note, I just picked up a new La Cruz and am loving it (recently sent you a PM to your Salsa Cycles handle on MTBR about it).
