Hi Jim,

Here are a couple of pictures of my 55cm Salsa Casseroll that I built up as a single speed bike path commuter. Those beautiful rear dropouts even allow a 4-tooth difference in cogs. I may change the gearing and add a fixed gear option when my knee has fully recovered from surgery, but right now I'm enjoying it as-is. I'm usually pretty conservative, but I think that red headset and seat post collar (Many thanks to the guys at Harpers Bicycles here in Knoxville) look great with the red bar tape.

Other touches include: Mavic cranks with 36t ring and home made guard; Sakae LowFat pedals; 16 and 20 tooth Chris King cogs on shimano 105 hubs with MA3 rims; Nitto handlebar and post; Brooks B17 Champion saddle; and Avocet 700x28 (actual) tires. I'm contemplating switching the IRD calipers for some single pivots to allow room for 32mm Paselas and fenders.

Thanks for the site, it's consistently one of my favorites.
