The Salsa is nearly complete. Yesterday, Chris Jones (the Hayz design engineer) and I began cobbling together a set of prototype mechanical disc brakes, but it turned out looking like a very heavy kluge. So, out came the cantis. Someday, we’ll return to the ‘cross brake project, but the resources just aren’t there right now. In the meantime, going with cantis allows me to use my existing ‘cross wheels – once I convert them to 135mm spacing. What you see here is a 130mm rear wheel jammed into the rear triangle – exclusively for your viewing pleasure.
