very nice how it came out. the new chainring fits well with the o7 campy crank. have you have any trouble with the campy ergos and discs? i have never seen that setup before.

No problem´s, ergos & discs. Work great...
Also hubs are AC with Shimano body, so casette is Ultegra 14-25, 10speed.
And it works also perfect with ergos!

are those the regular BB7s or the specific BB7road edition?
(anyhow, do you know whether ergopowers work with the regular BB7s?)

normal ones have a longer cable pull, for V-brake levers.

The chainring fits so well. Now we need Maaria's ride comments. Por favor.

I think it is a beautiful bike an I do not intend to spoil the fun but...

There is very little toe clearance right now. Would it not be al little risky to put on bigger tires with spikes? She would ruin her shoes if she hits the tire.

Well.. she would ruin much more, if falls down on icy road with out spikes.
Front tire will tuch shoe anyway with those tyres on now.

For what I know, Maaria rides with such a pace, that she doesn't turn the handlebar, she just leans on corners. :shock:

:thumbup:

The Salsa surely looks fast and seems to fit well too for her. You'll need to fuel yourself with porridge to stay behind her wheel. :roll:

Yup strange weather. + 7 C today, wonder if I have to bring back the summer clothes back from the attic :?:
