La vie de vélo

Adventures in cycling and life

Big wheels be rollin’

So the Salsa Mamasita arrived yesterday! I unpacked it and set it up pretty quickly- The packing job was excellent which made life easier. The Bontranger tubeless tires were well seated so a hand pump was all I needed to inflate (as opposed to my previous tubeless experiences with Stans which pretty much required an air compressor). Threw on the egg beaters and we have lift off. Just about 24 lbs according to my bathroom scale.

The only thing I’m not thrilled about is the carbon bar – I’d like to have locking grips and bar ends, both of which have sketchy compatibility with Monkeylites. Anyways, it’s off to Elings Park for a test ride.
