Salsa Cycles Bicycle Frames And Components!

Salsa Cycles in stock here!We proudly carry Salsa Cycles and enjoy their fine selection of bicycle components and frames suited to every cycling need, on road and off, across town or across a mountain range. Even their smallest components like their popular Flip-Off quick-release skewers and seatpost collars are a joy to use and have become some of the most sought-after products out there. They are also masters of all materials, from chromoly forks, Scandium frames, carbon bars, aluminum rims to titanium stems.

Salsa's Chili Con Crosso!And, as you'd expect Salsa has a long storied history of innovation and excellence. It all started back in 1976, when Salsa founder Ross Shafer built his first road frame in his Santa Cruz, California basement. On rides, people starting asking about it, and soon enough Ross started building frames for his friends too. He then took a job with Santana building lugless tandem frames to hone his framebuilding skills, tandems being some of the most difficult types of frames to craft.

Singlespeed or 5-inch travel? You decide, Salsa delivers!In 1981, Shafer built his first mountain bike frame, and again friends relentlessly hounded him to build them one. He accepted and built five frames saying that these would be the only mountain frames he'd ever make. While building them up, he decided to try one and see what the fuss was about. He instantly became a mountain biker.

It was also that year that Ross left Santana and went out on his own under the name Salsa. He chose the catchy name for his love of the condiment. He often brought tortilla chips and picante salsa to the shop with him, actually.Salsa es caliente!

By the time 1983 rolled around, Salsa was in full swing, and recognizing that fit was a key part of enjoying cycling, started producing custom stems. They were an immediate hit. They made stems for the Gary Fisher Team, the first all-women's mountain bike team and even the Olympic Team Time Trail squad.

There's a lot of fun in every Salsa product too!

Fast forward to 1991, and Ross Shafer was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, Flip-Off quick-release skewers were born, and Salsa partnered with Merlin to produce titanium handlebars. It all marked Salsa officially becoming a major player in the bike world, a position they own even more than ever today.

The passion, quality and craftsmanship that made Salsa famous continues in every item bearing the name today. So when you're ready to spice up your ride, whatever it is, we've got all the Salsa ingredients. The only queston is: mild, medium or hot?
