Basically this is the same bike as my Campeon-- I swapped all the parts over, save the decidedly non-roadie long-reach brakes, Brooks saddle, fenders, 28cm tires, and Carradice Barley bag.

I loved that Campeon, I did. That mother could fly, but I just am not a roadie. Having that fancy a road bike that never got used because I was always out on its steel siblings seemed like a waste and a shame. I decided I'd hang its parts on a steel frame with more relaxed angles/longer stays/lower BB/lots and lots of braze-ons.

Now all three of my bikes 1. are steel, and 2. have Brooks B17s. AND THAT'S WHERE THE SIMILARITIES END-UH. Okay, wait... except for the full fenders. And the rear rack. Other than that stuff, TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

Love the pic of that dropout. Classy and yet the essence of cycling.

Long live Salsa, long live Steel.

Looks like you could still move on this one! The fenders/seat/bag/wheels are a nice mix of fast/function.

Really like it.
