Fishy Bunch

Ran across Steve McReynolds and this fishy bunch while out on a Sunday morning leisure ride with the ol lady. They were nice enough to stop and pose in front of this fish mural under the University Dr. bridge. Looked like they had they were having a great time cruising the Trinity Trail. For a free map of the Trinity Trail system just stop by the bike shop and ask.

Salsa Cycles Casseroll Single

We are now stocking the Salsa Casseroll single. There are two in stock and ready to go home with you. If you are not located locally then give us a call at (817) 924-1333 or (817) 924-2453 and we'll box one up and ship it to you. Sizing is a little tricky, it helps to reference the Salsa geometry chart and know your preferred horizontal top tube length. The bike is actually available in single speed form or geared with a triple crankset. Purchasing a frameset and adding your components is also an option. Check the last page of the gallery on our website to see a satisfied Casseroll triple customer.

Here is what Salsa has to say about the Casseroll Single:

Simple and to the point, Casseroll Single gets you where you want to go with singlespeed gearing. A singlespeed road bike you say? Yup. We’re talking one gear that you pedal fast or slow, up hills and down, and all around town.

Casseroll Single starts out with our extremely versatile Casseroll frameset. Crafted of Salsa Classico CroMoly, the frameset provides the resilient feel that steel is famous for. It feels good while you ride it!

Designed around long reach brakes, the frameset allows you to run nice large road tires: 700c x 37mm without fenders and 700c x 32mm with full fenders. Big tires may add some weight, but we feel the extra comfort is well worth it while riding on rough roads or well-worn paths.

Our partially polished, stainless steel, forward-entry horizontal dropouts make for easy chain tensioning. Interested in running fixed? Flip-flop the rear Surly New hub and add a track cog. Finishing touches include fender and rear rack mount braze-ons, and a pump peg.

Fine, functional parts like Surly New hubs laced to Salsa Delgado Cross rims, long-reach Tektro 521 AG brakes R20 brake levers, Sugino RD2 singlespeed crankset with 48T ring, and Continental Contact 37mm tires keep you rolling. The WTB Silverado Race saddle with Salsa embroidery, Salsa Moto Ace Short & Shallow bars, and painted-to-match Salsa CroMoto stem top it off.

Casseroll Single is all about riding while not fretting over what gear you’re in. Just roll up those pants cuffs, spin those pedals, and go somewhere. Enjoy the simple life, try riding single.

Casseroll Single. Getting the job done…simply.
