Salsa bridges the gaps once again

Salsa Woodsmoke and Pony Rustler bikesThe Salsa Woodsmoke was created with versatility in mind. It is made with a full carbon frame that can be adapted for multiple wheel and tire sizes — it was designed to fit both 29+ or standard 29er tires with a 120mm fork, or the 27.5+ wheel/tire combination with a 130mm fork. This full carbon frame comes with internal cable routing, Boost 148 rear with Alternator 2 dropouts, long top-tube, a slack front-end, mounts for three water bottles, and plenty of frame space for packs & gear. Be ready for long days in the saddle...bikepacking, trail exploration...wherever you want to take your ride.

Pictured is the Salsa Woodsmoke complete bike (pictured top left, contact the shop for build kit & prices) and the Salsa Woodsmoke frame (pictured far right, size XL at the Tustin shop, MSRP is $1499).

 

The Salsa Pony Rustler is Salsa's 27.5+ full suspension bike. 130mm front and 120mm rear wheel travel via Dave Weagle's incredible Split Pivot rear suspension design. Built to ride aggressive terrain with stable 27.5 x 3.0″ tires so that you can tackle "any singletrack in the world."

Currently in stock at the Tustin shop is the 2018 Salsa Pony Rustler with NX1 build kit (pictured, lower left), size medium. MSRP is $2799.
