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.

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.
