For the past couple months I have been riding the 2011 Salsa Casseroll on the road, on side streets, commuting, off the beaten path and really it has been the bike strapped to the roof of my car while traveling all over NC, SC and TN. I will be sad when I have to send this bike back as it truly is the Cadillac of road bikes (minus the drivetrain.) You can read the preview over yonder before you dive into my full review.
We recently received the Cateye TL-LD570 Reflex Auto Light and it quickly was installed on the rear of my Salsa Casseroll. Our initial spin around the block gave the impression that this rectangle of a light is bright, and the reflector works wonderfully. Something I didn’t realize I was missing in a light.
In late August I took delivery of a Salsa Casseroll in the single speed variety. Since then the bike has been my (almost) daily ride. It has caused me to get rid of my car and be a true car-free commuter and cyclist. There have been transformations of the bike which have been documented well.
