Last week, images started surfacing of Salsa’s Warbird gravel racer. Now the 2013 collection has been announced.
Salsa made aesthetic and geometry changes to many bikes, but also have a few brand new rigs. To start off, Salsa is unveiling the aluminum Beargrease fatbike and a new ultralight Beargrease tapered aluminum fork to match. The frame is said to be super stable and comfortable at slow speed with great standover clearance for stop and go riding conditions. Both frame and fork are anodized to cut weight and buff durability. Complete, it gets Surly Holy Rolling Darryl rims, and a combination of 11-36T SRAM cassette with SRAM group and 22/36t e*thirteen crankset. For the frameset pricing is $999. Complete it’s $2,999. Geometry and images after the break.
On top of Beargrease, Salsa is dropping four more bikes – the Colossal disc brake road bike, the Vaya Travel stainless steel S&S coupled touring bike, the Warbird gravel racing bike and a limited edition single speed El Mariachi 29er. Also, they’ve incorporated alternator dropouts on their entire El Mariachi 29er line and Mukluk snowbikes to allow for an easy switch between gears and single speed.
