    New Rustler?

    Listening to a Podcast this morning and heard mention of a New Rustler! taking away the Pony name. Wondering what changes are in store for their other suspension bikes. Go!

    Good riddance to the "pony rustler" name. I got one as a warranty replacement to my horsethief and I love the bike, but have always wanted to scratch that name off the frame. Isn't Rustler already taken as a name for a set of Salsa handlbars? They should have just made it Horsethief 29 and Horsethief 27.5+

    Looks like Salsa teased a pic of the new Rustler today on their Instagram. Look’s good, first reveal March 1st.

    I've seen two teasers:

    1. A pic that had a caption of something regarding a horse. Thought that was referring to a HORSEthief, but pony rustler would be a good guess too.

    2. A pic that had a caption mentioning something sharp, thinking that was either a SPEARfish or a buckSAW
    it's a challenge some of us are ultimately worthy of.

    I was informed that something like the bucksaw was not going to be in this next round. Im thinking rustler, spearfish, and redpoint.

    If I'm a betting man I think the new bikes are going to be an updated spearfish, Rustler, and Horsethief.

    Kinda thought a new info might pop up after FrostBike...

    Just the usual boring official teases on IG so far though.

    Ha--I missed the text. Got distracted by the photos of disc-brake coozies...

    Yawn. I've lost interest in these teased roll-outs. Get over yourselves, Salsa, and show the bike...
