Seems like all the other bike companies have at least a one full carbon frame, so anything new coming from Salsa? A full carbon road or hardtail frame/bike? Any chance of a full carbon racing cross bike?

It'll just be one of the chinese made ones you can get off ebay for $300 like Sette has slapped their name onto... albeit with a fancy salsa paintjob and a big price hike.

How do you know that is the exact frame Sette Uses?

Let's see... identical geometry, tube shape/extrusion and frame weights. It wasn't rocket science to figure it out. 95% of the carbon fiber frames made now come from one of a handful of factories in china.

What are you talking about? Did Salsa say they have a new carbon hardtail for 2010? I was just asking them if there's any carbon bikes for 2010.

I will put this to rest for you all, Salsa will not be offering any full carbon bikes for 2010. Additionally, our 10 member Product Design (and engineering) team designs all of our new products in house, from the ground up.

Dear Bike Gods,

Please make Salsa keep a 26inch race platform as part of their quiver.

Your faithful singletrack worshipper,

Victor

How about an OX platinum framed 29er with the ritchey plexus style seatstays for that massive 1/4 inch of travel. (AND NO DAMNED SLIDING DROPOUTS like the 2010 El M or EBBs either).
