Megan loves Salsa's, Sram Rival, and JB
Sleek lines of the Podio
Grazing in the field
Secret QBP bike stash house
So, first off let me say that I love Salsa Bicycles. There bikes are made with high quality materials including scandium aluminum, a variety of steels, and now titanium from Lynskey. My girlfriend Megan has wanted a road bike for a long time so I figured, hey I work at a bike shop, I can make that happen. So, I ordered her a Salsa Podio road warrior and surprised her yesterday. She loved the bike, fought back tears of joy, and gave me a great big hug and kiss. We set her up with a new helmet, some conti gatorskin tires for a little bit more puncture resistance, and some specialized bottle cages. Today we cruised 22 miles of chilly, windy, Illinois weather after fitting Megan on the Salsa. The ride was great and great to finally have my girlfriend accompanying me. We look forward to working up to some longer rides and spending more time on the saddle. Planning a longer ride on Sunday if the weather is not insanely windy like it has been, goal is 80 to 100 miles.
