OK...Here's a quick update on our virtual Salsa road bike. For those not following the blog in the last week or so, we are building a virtual road bike based around a new and undisclosed 2009 Salsa road frame set. This build isn't about picking parts for a production bike. It's about having fun and building a really nice road bike. So far we've chosen the following components to go with the Salsa frame and fork: 2009 SRAM Rival, compact crank, & a Chris King colored coordinated headset. Today, I'd like to move to the sensitive topic of saddles.
What saddle? I know asking this question may prove difficult because a saddle on a bicycle is a really personal choice. However, just maybe there will be a trend. I'm actually looking forward to seeing the answers to this question and I will actually give the saddle we pick here an extended try.
One note before you comment. Remember to play nice. I deleted two comments from the headset post. Nothing too harsh, but I could easily see the sparks. Remember, let's have fun and build a really nice road bike.
