    Looks like some details of most of the rest of the line up is out:

    Salsa Cycles

    Notice the Vaya isn't there (have a '14 Vaya) but am thinking of adding a El Mariachi to the stable... would guess the Vaya will be up shortly.

    No Vaya and no Warbird. Wonder if they get S*** canned? If so that's a shame I love my Vaya

    No Vaya is a real surprise. I always thought that the Vaya was one of their real core models. Warbird I can understand a little bit more because so many brands are coming out with that type of bike and for the price the Warbird just isn't as impressive on paper as these newer models. Salsa probably can only handle so many bikes which means they need to make room for the new fatbikes by getting rid of others.

    2015 Vayas have the same frame sets as last year. Pretty lame IMO. Was hoping ti would be reintroduced. The stainless frame, minus the couplers, would have been a nice alternative. I just hate the thought of paying a premium price for those couplers.

    I'm very happy that I have a 2013 Colossal with an Enve fork. I don't really care about racks and would much rather have the Enve than the in house fork.

    No changes for the Vaya is disappointing but at least it's still in the lineup. Weird how they didn't include it or the Warbird with the the other blog entries.

    Those couplers are keeping me from buying. I don't have any use for them and would not buy a bike with them.

    I also don't need another Vaya so maybe it's a good thing they aren't coming out

    I talked with Salsa today. The Vaya lineup is unchanged for 2015. Same frames, colors, specs and components. They said dealers are happy with the Vaya models they way they are.

    Alternator dropouts on the Vaya would be nice

    Agreed, Alternators on a Vaya might finally push me to get a road bike. Other than the travel version, that is.

    Me too. It would be a little nice to have the ability to run 30mm tires, but whatever. I think the ti version is ugly, but I do dig that orange in the steel version. But I still like my bomb pop blue the best!

    My Vaya Travel (SST, couplers) has alternator dropouts. Not a fan really - singlespeed can eat a d!ck, mine have creaked badly from day 1, and the threads are soft and very easy to crossthread

    That is a shame. I really want to make one into a Rohloff world touring rig but those dropouts just worry me. I wish they had something like the Ogre/Troll/ECR. That would be perfect for me.

    I tried to impress upon my Salsa Rep that I would love to order a new Vaya titanium. He laughed and said demand was so low he doubted it would ever make a come back.

    Sad panda.

    I guess the Vaya Ti will always be one of those bikes I wished I had bought. Oh well I love my Vaya.

    Anyone longing for a Vaya Ti should take a good look at Kona's Ti Rove as a very capable alternative.
