The New Ala Cat

Well, it is a new Ala Carte really...but check out the Ala Cat in the photo.

Nick Moroder sent in the photo of his cat giving his new Ala Carte frame a love nibble...or was it a jealous bite?

Good stuff.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

butcher,<BR><BR>This might sound confusing, but does “removable canti-studs” mean the square base stays there, but the post unscrews from the base?  Or does the whole thing come off of the fork similar to the VooDoo Dambala seatstay brake posts?

Anonymous:  Yes, the removable canti studs unscrew.  The base for the canti studs remain on the frame.

That’s too bad.<BR><BR>A disc-only 425mm Salsa fork would be perfect for my 96er project.

Anonymous - The disc specific Ala Cartes are being built this month.  This means the forks are too.  I expect to see them either later December or early January.  <BR><BR>Regarding the 425 axle to crown forks, they are not disc only.  They do have removable canti studs.

I’ve got an Ala Carte question:<BR><BR>When are the disc-only Ala Carte forks going to be available?  Will there be any 425mm axle-to-crown forks that are disc-specific or will the 445mm forks be the only ones without canti posts?

Meow! Don’t you think it’s a bit… er, Caty? :-) O.K., I couldn’t help it.

I have always wondered what a Salsa tastes like. I bet they are a little spicy….although I don’t see the cat’s eyes tearing up.
