The Salsa Cycles Deadwood comes to life

I know this bike is over a year old but I have changed my methodology for building new bikes. No more do I throw everything together as fast as I can with a hodgepodge of parts.  Instead I pain over every detail and build it when I have all the parts, or at least very close to all the parts.

This one took a while and will replace my old blue Fargo Titanium. It’s just right. I still have a second set of wheels to build as well as custom frame bags to get, but here’s the build.

Bar: Salsa Cowbell, 46cm

Stem: Zipp Service Course

Seatpost: Eriksen Ti setback with black caps

Saddle: Brooks B17 Carved
