    Horsethief Carbon not in white?

    Anybody know if it's possible to buy a Horsethief Carbon frame-only in the black/purple color?

    It's not. I asked my LBS (who is a major Salsa dealer) if they could pull that off since they are probably in the upper tier of dealers in the country. They checked and word was Salsa was not willing to. I don't get why not. A frame sale is a frame sale, but I'm not a bike manufacturer. So what my LBS did was buy a complete purple haze and a frame only white/orange. Swapped the parts over to the white/orange for them to sell on their own, then started my custom build on the purple haze. Financially I did not get as good of a deal because of the extra work the LBS did, and the fact that they have a white carbon HT that they didn't have an immediate customer for, but I got the bike I wanted. Last I heard from the LBS they had a prospective buyer for the white/orange build so it looks like a win win situation.
