  • Split Pivot Rear Suspension eliminates unwanted suspension movement during acceleration and braking for maximum traction and pedaling efficiency
  • XC/Trail Specific Suspension with 120mm of travel offers efficient pedaling with midstroke support for cornering and pumping terrain
  • Pony Rustler geometry gives you a low-slung stance for a playful feel and aggressive performance
  • BOOST-148 Technology features 148x12mm rear spacing paired with a standard width bottom bracket for more tire clearance and a stiffer, stronger rear wheel
  • Double- and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066-T6 aluminum tubeset is strategically shaped for added strength and stiffness in key areas
  • High-Modulus carbon seatstays increase rear end stiffness and reduce weight over aluminum stays
  • Front triangle is capable of fitting a full-size 28 fl. oz. water bottle
  • Aggressive 27.5 x 3 in. tires offer the float and traction of fat tires without sacrificing control or maneuverability of narrower mountain bike tires
  • PressFit 41x92mm bottom bracket is compatible with all 1x and 2x BOOST mountain cranks—both GXP and 24mm spindle types (not included)
  • Replaceable derailleur hanger

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.


We ship Salsa bikes purchased on to the REI store of your choice.

 To ensure proper assembly Salsa bikes cannot be shipped to your home or other address.

What is the return policy? So difficult to commit to a nice bike without being able to test ride because of lack of local inventory. 

Asked by: MTflygirl
