    Salsa and 'cross

    Is Salsa even offering up a true cross bike anymore (as opposed to a gravel grinder type)?

    Yeah it looks like the Warbird 2 or Warbird Ti is the closest you are going to get now that they dropped the Chili Con Crosso. What are you looking for?

    I was bummed when they got rid of the La Cruz Ti. That was such a sweet bike. It seems like their focus now, is on gravel and fatties. That Beargrease Carbon is sweet!

    The fact that QBP owns Salsa and Foundry could mean they didn't want overlap and Foundry has their Harrow carbon cross bike.

    Very good point! QBP might be compartmentalizing their brands with Surly, Salsa and Foundry. I wish the Ti Salsa's were still made by Lynskey though.

    Salsa doesn't seem to want the racing market. They purposely thumbed their nose at the racers when they put the Warbird cables under the toptube. They still have their fans amongst those that race so I'm mystified at that.
