When you want to sell this Salsa let me know. I've been looking for this bike for years. Appears to be my size too!

Bought it new at Harris Cyclery, West Newton, MA, and it is our 20th year together. Used it for a club ride today AND bringing 50 pounds of groceries home, later on in the day. Amazing that it is so good at both. Re-painted orange sparkle in 2019 by Superior Powdercoating of Flint, MI. Almost ready for its winter outfit.
