Last fall leading up to Eurobike and Intebike, we did Sneak Peak Friday. It sure was fun. Well, today we thought we’d review some more of the Salsa Claus wishes. Today, we’d like to talk about good ideas.
Some people and brands only think good ideas can come from within a group, a person or a specific part of an organization. We don’t think that here at Salsa. While we are all parts and bike geeks and do talk about product a lot, lots of good ideas come from outside our work group. Good ideas are just that, good ideas. Please don’t mistake or interpret our acknowledgement of these good ideas as this is what we are doing or that you will see some of these projects come to fruition soon. Sometimes good ideas take some nurturing. Some times good ideas just don’t fit Salsa or where we want the brand to go. So with that, let’s explore some of those good and interesting ideas.
Blogger Andrew said…“Short travel XC race full suspension 29er” and Blogger Solo Goat said “....more travel than the Dos Niner & less travel than the Big Mama.” Well, we think this is a good idea and something we’d like to ride.
Blogger Velodelphia started something with…“Salsa scandium complete single speed. For those of us that love the Casseroll…”. Blogger Chris added to this as well. Hmmm? We think with some exploration of this idea, there might be something there.
Blogger Sam said….“Salsa Dirt Drop - Bar end compatible; Bring back the classic wool jersey; Wool Logo Cap”. All good ideas. Riding in today, I thought about long sleeve Classico wool jerseys again. In fact, I could I have used all three this morning.
Several Bloggers mentioned Ala Carte with EBB options. We love the Ala Carte & it’s special place and we think this is a good idea too.
Velodelphia talked about doing more with Clif Bar. We think this relationship is just starting. There is something there for sure. You’ll will see more about that soon.
Man we love talking about product and ideas. We need to do more of this. Stay tuned next week as we explore the other suggestions. The next post will be about stems, seat post, bars and forks. Lot’s of interest, good ideas and possibilities in these areas!
Have a good one. Ride your bike.

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
