    That Salsa looks sweet!

    two gorgeous bikes this week.

    Have to disagree. That Salsa is minging!
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder an’ all that.

    IBIS head badge is better than the Salsa one!

    Luv The Salsa anyone want to buy £2399.99 Kidney only one owner !

    Hello, I would like to exchange one of my kidneys – or both should you require then – for the Spearfish please.

    £240 for a jacket! Can you wear each layer of Gore-Tex separately? 6 in 1 trumps a Regatta 3 in 1.

    I have an envelope, a stanley knife and a plastic bag. I will raise the offer to one kidney, a toe and a tonsil.

    I picked up the last medium 2013 Salsa Spearfish that Salsa had in the UK this week. The ano orange looks awesome on the 2014, still my painted single pivot was half that price 🙂

    I’d have been happy with my copy of issue 88 turning up!

    Who have you contacted about your missing issue?

    Spoke with Sarah, following the comments on the issue 88 thread. Sarah said wait till Monday and if still no show then contact again!

    That salsa. In large. Pleeeeease

    I’m with Roger, that Salsa looks like a home made lash up. Not for me thanks.

    Tubing looks a bit mangled on the spearfish, IS a nice colour tho so if the tubes are form following function, getting 29″ wheels and full sus into a compact frame, then I like it.

    Salsa does look a bit agricultural for the dosh.
    My £2000 ti mariachi frame (which is nice…..but how much?!?) came with a plastic head badge… hmmmph,as the mother in law says!
    I still love me old lazer cut allen bolted on SIR though.
    Proper joaaabbb.

    Oh Yeah, going to have to spend £6.00 on a replacement mag after my darling beloved son honked all over it (I think he’d just read the rediculously biased & ill informed van review).
    Really STW vw transporter…NO…. can’t believe that!?!
    Open your wallet and say after me ” No I’ll pay for the half shafts even if it is in warranty”
    Oh yes the Sportline should, but doesn’t come with dental insurance & rubber gloves.
    Plenty of better vans out there for nearly half the price with better, comfort, equipment warranty & support.
    Wake up, it’s not a surfin T1
