ADVENTURE BY BIKE®

Sneak Peak Friday

Can you say S-E-L-M-A? It's SPF and you've come to expect a little something on these special days. Interbike is a week away. Take a look.

It was a great day for riding. Now, before you go and call me a 'tool' because it doesn't show much, there are some details in this photo. You just need to look AND think. Now, those of you readers that know the answer(s), I ask you to keep your mouths shut.

FYI: We won't be answering questions. You'll see it soon enough.

Enjoy your Friday. Selma is sweet!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jason Boucher

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.

My guess would be the same as Martini’s.  SS light race bike.  Sweet.  I heard someone mention they say an all carbon SS 29er on top of a car around here a while back that wasn’t a superfly….hmmmm..  :)  Can’t wait!

@ cyclists for a better something or other: too funny.<BR><BR>Jason: You’re a tease.<BR><BR>My guess? Mamasita is Hot. Selma Blair is hot. Combine the two and you get single speed hotness!<BR><BR>I mean really, you’re at Murhpy there, so it can’t be a road bike. Maybe a crosser - but Salsa already has good coverage there. So count that out.<BR><BR>That leaves a new light, race oriented SS. People have been clamoring for something like that for ages now. Salsa putting out a direct competitor for the Superfly SS kinda would make sense.<BR><BR>I dunno. I’m done. I got work to do.<BR><BR>M

Selma is also the name of an ice cream parlor in Afton, MN where salsa sponsors a 24 hour mtb race.  So, is Selma a new mtb model?  I guess we’ll soon find out.

Dear Selma,<BR><BR>Thank you for sending me your picture.  I can’t make out very much, but here’s what I’ve been able to come up with:<BR><BR>According to my research, your name is of Old German and Arabic origin.  In Old German, your name means “helmet of God”.  In Arabic, it means “safe”. In Portuguese, it means “the fair”.  It is the feminine short form of Anselma; variant of Salma. Actresses Selma Blair and Salma Hayek both have this name, and they are both hot.<BR><BR>During the Civil Rights Movement in the early 1960s, Selma, Alabama was a focal point for desegregation and voting rights campaigns.  Martin Luther King held a famous march in Selma.<BR><BR>In your picture, you appear in a field of summer flowers.  Women are known to love flowers.  Flowers might also mean you might prefer off road environments to road environments.  Pehaps we can go for a picnic together sometime?<BR><BR>Confusingly, however, the person with you on the picture looks like a male.  Perhaps a cross dresser?  Who knows.  I wonder if you are intended to be a companion for the female sex, or whether you are intended for both sexes (might be a bit too experimental for me, but hey, if you’re good looking enough…).<BR><BR>Next Sneak Peak Friday will be the 19th of Sep.  At such point, Interbike will only be 3 working days away.  Perhaps you will give me another, more revealing look at yourself next Friday.<BR><BR>If not, then I’ll have to wait until I meet you at Interbike, but I cannot promise that I’ll still intersted in you then, as I have begun to date another girl by the name of Podio, and she’s very, very hot.

Correction to the correction:<BR><BR>Salsa frames (note this is not complete bikes) that are not road strictly speaking (that is, they are either mtb or cross, or otherwise predominantly off-road oriented):<BR><BR>La Cruz<BR>Chili Con Crosso<BR>Fargo<BR>Ala Carte<BR>Mariachi<BR>Santo<BR>Kaboing<BR>Big Mama<BR>Moto Rapido<BR>Mamasita<BR>Dos Niner<BR><BR>Salsa frames that are road strictly speaking (that is, they might handle a bit of dirt or gravel, but are really meant mainly for pavement):<BR><BR>Casseroll<BR>Podio<BR>Pistola<BR><BR>By the criteria I used above, that gives us 3 road vs. 11 non-road.<BR><BR>I understand one could ride a Fargo on pavement for many hours and a Podio on dirt trails if one really wanted to, but I think you know what I mean.  <BR><BR>If Selma won’t be road, then please think a bit more about road for ‘10.<BR><BR>Thanks, and have a great weekend.
