Salsa Cycles La Cruz

2008



Description 

La Cruz Complete is your ticket to the mixed bag world of pavement and dirt…dirt and pavement. A fine cyclocross steed: race it if you like, but ride it you must. There’s not much better than riding a skinny tire off-road!

The frameset is crafted of True Temper OX Platinum. Its disc brake only design is clean and elegant and balances form and function.

La Cruz Complete features a host of deserving components. Shimano 105 10-speed STI brake/shift levers, front and rear derailleurs, chain and cassette are driven by TruVativ’s Elita 39T/48T crankset. Avid BB-7 mechanical disc brakes providing generous stopping power. Panaracer CrossBlaster tires keep you hooked up while the WTB Rocket V Race saddle with Salsa embroidery provides comfort and style.

Sweet Salsa parts top it all off. The painted-to-match CroMoto stem and polished silver Moto Ace Bell Lap bar are as functional as they are good looking. Delgado 29’er Race rims (laced to Shimano XT hubs) are lightweight but durable.

Throw down at the weekend’s grassroots ‘cross race. Or hit that singletrack shortcut between sections of pavement on the morning commute. Spin a skinny tire'd signature in the dirt.

La Cruz Complete. The 700c version of a split personality.
