2008 Salsa Ala Carte

Built this bike in 2010. Frame was a never used/left over purchased on Ebay from a bike shop. Wheels, brakes and LX drivechain were takeoffs from another bike I had. Most other Salsa bits were purchased from TreeFortBikes website. I use it to commute to work. Very comfortable geometry for a mountain bike.
