2009 Salsa Casseroll (718C_060)

Full Image Gallery

This project is a fixed-gear build using a 2009 Salsa Casseroll frame

The wheels are TI Grey Velocity Fusions.  Velocity was having a dealer sale this month where it was actually cheaper for me to have the wheels assembled by them as opposed to buying the components separately and building myself. On this frame, the rear wheel spacing is 130mm, instead of the 120mm I generally see on older road frames.  This increased width helps the frame accommodate larger tires and fenders.

Just received the frame, here is an initial mockup

It was a cold one today, so we built inside
