    Guessing new Spearfish and Horsethief models since they didn’t have ‘18 model year units. Curious to see if they bump travel up on these models like everyone else is doing to their XC/trail bikes or if they hold to the ‘Adventure by Bike’ mantra where 4-5” of travel is just fine.

    I bet Spearfish goes to 100mm rear 120mm front. That seems to be the new sweet spot for the XC endurance squish. Hopefully it will have room for 2 bottle cages in the triangle like the new canyon and orbea. Also hope it will fit bigger tires, at least a 2.4, but 2.6 would be cool.

    I also wonder if the Horsethief (or whatever they might call a longer travel squish, as they may not make it anymore given apparent fascination with plus) will go superboost rear.

    i'm hoping for a cutthroat with alternator plates, threaded bottom bracket, and clearance for 29 plus tires. in other words, a carbon fargo.

    Salsa sent out an email a while back teasing a new Warbird v4. The frame and fork (to be available separately) look very interesting, but there's been nothing since that first email. I'd really like to see the geometry ASAP!!!
