First peek at my new cross bike. It’s my first non Salsa in many, many years. Honestly, feels weird. Not good. Not bad. Just different. Very weird in fact. For some specifics about the model, go here to the All-City blog. It appears I have 1 of 4 or 5 in existence. I’ll be honest, that fact is kind of cool. Not going to give you the full product detail post yet as I am still building some nice wheels for it.
It’s a dang nice bike though and I got out on a mostly pavement route on Saturday to break it in. Looking forward to many miles with the bike. I’m still going to use my Vaya Ti mostly for gravel and my Fargo Ti for all my mixed terrain dirt/gravel rides.
It was a great day out on the bike though. Good weather. Blue sky. Normal cycling shoes. No gloves. New bike. Hard to have a bad day really. Hopefully the good vibes carry into my week. Gonna be another hectic one, but with a hint of spring, dreams of long rides and a little new bike mojo should get me through.
