    Salsa Soft Tail Sizing Info

    For those of you out there wondering...

    I sent an e-mail a few days ago to Salsa's customer service, asking for sizing info and availability dates. Here is what they sent me earlier today...

    16" Frame - 21.7" C-to-C / 22.7" Horizontal
    18" Frame - 22.5" C-to-C / 23.5" Horizontal
    20" Frame - 23.5" C-to-C / 24.4" Horizontal
    22" Frame - 24.4" C-to-C / 25" Horizontal

    Although I asked, I did not get a response on availability dates. I'll ask again.

    Cheers,
    C-Hog

    Does anyone know where we're at on price? I fear it will be high....I suspect this due to thier pricing on their San Juan Single Speed, which they have at nearly $2000 and it's basically a baby wheeled version of the RIG, not even sure it has EBB....

    Let's have a guessing session:

    Hummm..I'm thinking $1400 for frame only.

    Does anyone know anything about Salsa Warrenty's?

    Do you think there will be a weight limit on the frames if they are Scandium?

    Is it just me, or does that sound awfully tall?

    My X-Large Supercal has a standover height of 31.5 inches. A Fisher 17.5" frame has a claimed standover of 28.7" What gives???

    May very well be measured at a different point on the frame. Plus, my number came off of a sheet that's been posted for ever and has some corrections penned in, so it may be wrong.

    I was wondering about that standover myself. The 18 inch size seems like a good fit for me except the standover is longer than my inseam, otherwise it is pretty close to my other bikes. Sort of a fit for those with super long legs and teensy tiny torsos. Let us know what the actual standover will be if you can, and when the bike will be brought to market.
    Thanks

    Salsa has tried to keep standovre height in check, as you can see by how low the toptube crosses the seat tube. Depending on the BB height, I don't think it will be as bad as the KM.

    How about rear stay clearance?

    What size tire is it designed to accept?

    What's this about a Salsa soft tail? No info about it anywhere I can find. Is this true?

    Suggested MSRP for the Salsa soft-tail will be 1100 for the frame w/proprietary shock. Check out the thread further down the 29er forum page for more info. Oh, and the bike rides sweet!
