    Dear Salsa: Please make a flat bar Cutthroat

    A Cutthroat frame with geo suitable for mtb handle bar is my dream bike right now, can't find anything like it. Please make it Salsa .

    There's 1000 xc frames out there but nothing like a cutthroat with the vibration damping and frame mounts etc etc. Would be so awesome. I've got bikes with dirt drops and have been using them for years, but personally prefer the width and control of flat bars in mtb situations. Would be so good to have the choice.

    You could always go up a size and put your own flat bar on it. Nothing in the rulebook about that, right?

    I ride an XL so unfortunatley that's not really an option, but yeah, would still be a compromise.

    They need a carbon frame in the Cutthroat style with the same features, and geometry suited for 100mm sus fork and flat bars. It's the missing link in their lineup.

    Am looking at the Timberjack too, but it's almost too far the other way. Same goes with the woodsmoke, way too much bike for extended touring. Want the Goldilocks bike in the middle which is juuust right.
