handling is quck, bike is very nimble. what very limited single track i've hit up confirms my thoughts - that it rides light and stiff. pick your lines good and you'll fly - otherwise, that rock you forgot about will remind you when you hit it.

tire pressure would be very key - i have a tendency to run it high. with a full rigid, best bet would be to run it a little lower.

additionally, initial thoughts would be to possibly run something like a moots post to dampen up the hits a little. could go with the big suspension type of posts out there, but that would be too heavy.

Like my email stated, yes, please send me your info and I'll get the poster to you. I just need to know if you need a silver sharpie or not.

What sort of plans do you have for that Salsa? I know some of riders at the Cheq 40, Ore 2 Shore and Iceman have been running rigids. Like you stated, the rocks will let you know they are there.
