    Regardless of any new models being launched, the current ones don't become obsolete overnight.

    Agree and if you want a certain model then get it. Resale value of bikes have never been an issue to me. I want what I want.

    Bzzzzt Wrong! But thanks for playing....

    Simply making a frame in titanium doesn't mean it will be major flexible or heavier. Titanium CAN be used to make a frame ride better, because it can safely flex near infinite times without fatigue failure being an issue if the load level is taken into account when designing it, unlike Aluminium where every time it flexes, is 1 step closer to failure, and all Al alloys suffer this problem, including scandium enhanced ones (this forum is full of former Dos Niner owners for example). As to heavier, again it comes down to the frame design, but there are a number of frames that have come out far lighter and more reliable in titanium than in aluminium.

    They are planning something... i got this exact wording from a large volume salsa dealer...

    "I know what they're planning but I can't tell you about it".

    Yep. Same here.

    My shop had to sign a non-disclosure. So yeah, nitropowered should probably shut his word-hole.

    Well, if they come out with a longer travel 650 FS bike, then I am glad I didn't pull the trigger on one of those 2012 HThief models from Universal. I can see me getting long travel 650b down the road. When I was in Prescott, AZ for the WOFR race, Salsa was there. I asked them point blank about a carbon Mamasita and carbon in general. They told me nope and sounded pretty serious. They said the only thing carbon will be the beargrease. Also, I asked if they can at least give me colors on the new Sita and they laughed with a "no".. I was able to score some salsa bike packing straps though.. I can't wait to see what colors they come out with for 2014.

    apart from the new DW suspension, how about the new cable routing and direct mount front derailleur.

    Looks pretty cool. Hopefully with them touting their Black Hills riding, they'll be back to support the Dakota 5-O. However, I'm more interested in frame only Mukluk options for 2014.

    So, there is a lot of news out on the FS models, how about the HT's?? Anyone have any new on Salsa's hard tail rigs? My guess is the Mamasita (if they still continue it for 2014) will get the anodized finish with the BB92 bottom bracket. I would imagine the 2014 El Mars will still keep the same frame style. Curious on the new colors though.

    I second that. I'm interested to find out more about the hardtails, whenever such info becomes available.

    There was a time when I would have written carbon fatbike as a joke, but they already have that in the works. So I would say nothing is too far out there for them right now.

    It would be great if they made the Fargo with Alternator dropouts. There are quite a few of us Fargonauts who wish it were easier to run singlespeed or an internally geared hub on the Fargo.

    Actually, on the component front, I wish for a carbon Woodchipper.
