    2017 Salsa bikes

    Any word yet on next years Salsa's?

    My wish list is a 29+ Spearfish.

    (Whatever edit done )

    Hmmm...I started to type something out, but honestly, the things on my '2017 wishlist' for Salsa already have, or are about to be released, by Advocate - the Hayduke already is what the El Mar should have become a year or two ago (and probably will), a boosted version of a Fargo-esque bike (soon to be released) and a gravel bike made with a good steel frame/carbon fork (the Lorax). And a couple other things...

    Well, hopefully not a boosted Cutty with a threaded BB. I have just bought the 2016 one

    My LBS hinted at a short travel 29+. Guess we'll see soon enough.

    Woodsmoke a replacement for the Deadwood? Looking at possibly picking up a Deadwood but might wait and see what else is coming.

    I think all of the Deadwoods are sold out, including frames. If they're going to make another 29+ bike, it probably won't be a rigid drop bar bike.

    On another note, how does anybody know anything? Where are these names coming from? Both Woodsmoke and Timberjack sounds like Salsa names, but I can't tell if this is a joke or they have some insider information...

    Those names are real.

    There is also a new Alternator dropout that will allow for changes in wheel size without screwing up bb height.

    I've seen rumors that the Vaya is going away. I'd really like a 57cm frame, but frames and completes appear all sold out. Any word on the future of the Vaya?

    Vaya is not going away. Not this year, anyway. No idea on sizing.

    I hope that whatever they come out with will actually be available to buy.

    If this thread's staying on the first page can we get a mod to delete that apostrophe?
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.
