The Salsa Casseroll is another offering of a do-all Road, tour, commute, single, fixed bike option. Versatility is key with this frame. Compare it to more affordable Rivendell or a higher-end Surly. Here is a description from Salsa’s website on the Casseroll…..
“The frameset is crafted of double-butted Salsa Classico CroMoly tubing for both frame and fork. The steel tubing provides a wonderful balance between comfort and efficiency. Ask around and you won’t find many folks that don’t enjoy the feel of a steel bicycle.
We’ve designed the Casseroll to use long-reach brakes so it accepts very large road tires, up to 700c x 32mm with fenders, and 700c x 37mm without. Large tires add a heap of comfort on rough roads and paths.
Our partially polished, stainless steel, forward-entry horizontal dropouts let you switch up your bike as you like. Run fully geared, singlespeed, or fixed if you like. Finishing touches include fender and rear rack mount braze-ons, and a pump peg.”
Pedal Rev is a fan of these multi-use bike options. Many cyclists need one bicycle that will serve a variety of needs and riding styles. This is a consideration for us in choosing which bikes we want to sell. The Salsa Casseroll can be sold as a frameset or a complete bike built to your specifications. Here are a couple examples of two different builds that we have in the shop currently. Stop by to take a look at these or if you have a dream-build up in mind we will be happy to discuss options and pricing with you.
