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.

Any possibility that the existing drive train would accommodate a wider range on the rear cassette such as a 40 ring in place of the listed 34? Thanks!

Asked by: DaveDaniels
The the 34T low gear is the largest size this drive train can currently support. Upgrading to a cassette with a lowest gear of 40T requires replacing the derailleur and crank set.

The standover height on the medium says 60.2 inches. This must be a typo. I think it should be 30.2.

Asked by: Pidgie
The Salsa Marrakesh does have a 30.2 inch standover height. Thank you for bringing this information to our attention. We will update the product listing on as soon as possible.
