I am not certain, but I think I want to sell my Salsa La Cruz Mixed Surface Bike.

Stem: Deda Zero100 (90mm/110mm)
Drivetrain: Shimano 105 10spd. Group w/ Truvativ Crankarm and Octolink BB. Platform Pedals.

Wheel set 1: Salsa Delgado 29er Race w/ many different knobby tires.
Wheel set 2: DT Swiss RR 1.1/1.2 w/Chris King hubs. Continental 4000GP Tires
I have had this bike for a while, but I have hardly ridden it. It is just a little long for me to ride comfortably. I have ridden it about six or seven times. I did a one-off ride in 2011 and little commuting with it about five times last summer and the best was an off road ride this past New Year vacation. It was a marvelously fun bike to ride off road and rivaled many of the mountain bikes out there without the extra weight.
It makes a great commuter, light tourer, road and off road bike. Hard to find in Taiwan where the choice is usually between CF race bikes or heavy mountain bikes.
This is bike is also practically new.
I am not completely resigned to selling it, but if there is an offer I can live with, then I'd be happy to put this into someone's hands who'd give it the riding it deserves.
