Yesterday at the shop, we took our giant chalkboard down off the wall to wipe it clean and write down the latest promos and upcoming cycling events. After erasing it, I thought the board would make for a nice backdrop for the titanium Salsa Colossal I just built up, and so I took a few pics. I think I like how they turned out, so expect to see more of this in the future.
The build is mainly a stock Ti Colossal, which is Salsa's new titanium disc-brake-equipped road bike, with a couple of custom touches. We added a black/red Fi'zi:k Tundra saddle and Lizard Skins duotone black/red bartape, to compliment the red accents of the build. I'm usually not a big fan of duotone tape, but I really like the way it looks on this bike. It's a tasteful build that is modern and flashy, yet subtle and not over-the-top. Come by the shop to see it in person and take it for a spin... Maybe even take it home with you.
