A versatile touring machine with roadie influences is the brand new Salsa Casseroll, featuring long drop brake mounts and sliding dropouts. It's only available as a frameset (£375), so given the wide range of sizing on offer, we asked for it to be specced for women; it finally rolled in at about £875.
