Salsa no longer makes these frames and they're increasingly rare. This bike packs into an airline compliant travel case (see pictures). The components are optimized to pack fast and securely. Loosen the brake and shifter mounts and slide them off the handlebars. Decouple the frame SS wrench included!
Take off the handle bars. No cable splitting, no rewiring, no readjustments needed!
The handlebar shape is ideal for packing this into a travel case due to the flat shape, while still offering lots of hand positions for long touring rides. Once you get the hang of it, disassembly and assembly take under 25 minutes each.
The components on this bike are of varying ages. The DT Swiss wheelset is as old as the frame.
The Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires are like new. The cabling is recent and shifting is smooth. All components show signs of wear, but are fully functional. The wheels are still true. DT Swiss Wheels with Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires.
