Just bought a used Salsa La Cruz a few weeks back and so far I really like the bike. My local bike shop guy tried to get me not to buy it because it was too big for me. I rode it around the block a few times and enjoyed the feel of the bike. The stand over height is a little tall, but it works for me. After several hundred miles on the bike now, I can say that it is a great ride. The problem is that it is about an inch too long compared to my other bikes and causes me some some bake pain on longer rides. Sell it or try to modify it? I decided to put Surly Open Bars on it as well as new shifters and break levers. I will upload a picture of the finished mods when I get them done.
