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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soft-surface Bike Have bike sorted out & about 100 miles on her so time for review. I've converted to tubeless with Caffelatex FAT tubeless rim strips, 200ml of Caffelatex sealant, and Schwalbe Snakeskin Jumbo Jim 4" tires. Rolls better, holds air for weeks, and no flats since. I bought this bike to ride in soft, sandy desert conditions and it is superb. Light enough to roll along well and handles the softest sand I can find. I feared she'd be clumsy, but not a worry - easily moves along at 15 mph on any reasonable dirt surface and handles dune sand at 10. Bombing down sandy/gravelly descents at 25 feels planted. The 1x11 drive train was new to me, but I like the simplicity and it keeps the Q factor reasonable. Great bikepacking potential with the large space in the triangle, fork mounts for anything cages and rack compatible (I'm using the Salsa Alternator 190 rack). She's also easy to lift over a fence or a locked gate (don't ask). We wander with an overland truck for several months each summer and I wanted one bike that could handle everything. I plan to get a set of 29+ wheels built for her to use on harder surfaces or occasional pavement. I also added a Thudbuster seatpost to handle miles of washboards. I'd buy her again without a second thought.
