pretty sure this is golden gardens
some random pics from seattle’s 2012 bike swap on my flickr
Since my L’Esperance Track is my only track/fixed gear bike and i still NEED to ride fixed in the deep-dark-as-shit-winter that has been happening here in seattle (and riding brakeless fixed in seattle in the winter is SUCK) — i had garth make me a new fork with a disc mount. its the same fork, but one size bigger tubing for the fork legs for extra beaf (cuz of dick brake)
a quick nearing winter review of my salsa vaya 2 after 6+ months of ownership:
firstly, i’ve replaced alot of the stock parts:
campy record 10s shifters, red rear der, fizik saddle, fsa k-wing bars, few other things.
the vaya is such a versitle bike its kinda nuts. i’ve had it setup like an über commuter, an offroad, large-tired 29er, and now as a “fast” winter training/rando bike.
im pretty excited to get into next year and do some really long multi-day rides on it.
i would still recommend this bike to anyone.
