The Salsa Journeyman Apex 1 700 bike is an all-road bike with the chops to fulfill a wide variety of missions, whether you're wandering the backroads, bikepacking or racing gravel.

  • Features

    • Journeyman utilizes the same custom top tube and down tube Salsa developed for the Warbird aluminum, with new seatstays, chainstays, and dropouts in 6061-T6 aluminum to match
    • The entire frame is then heat treated to T6 alloy standards for extra strength and durability
    • 700c wheels with 37mm tires are fast rolling and efficient, and the best choice if speed is a high priority
    • Salsa Cowbell drop bar handlebar provides multiple hand positions, increasing comfort and efficiency on long rides, and an aerodynamic position when stiff headwinds arise
    • Feature-packed full-carbon fork with a tapered steerer and flat-mount brake
    • A crown light mount, fender eyelets, mid-blade mounts for low-rider racks and 3-pack mounts for the Anything cages (sold separately) or water bottles
    • Inspired by the Vaya and Warbird, the Journeyman geometry is comfortable and stable, whether it's your daily driver or you're entering your first gravel race
    • It's spirited when you want it to be, but relaxed enough to leave you with the energy for long rides
    • Full-length housing improves shifting performance in poor conditions and increases use time between maintenance intervals; internal routing creates a clean, uncluttered look
    • Integrated front and rear fender mounts help you achieve drier riding in inclement weather (fenders not included)
    • Low-rider rack capability on the fork with mid-blade mounts with integrated mounts for a rear rack
    • For optimal rear rack fit, the Salsa Wanderlust rack (not included) is recommended
    • Install the Salsa EXP Series top tube bag (sold separately) using Journeyman's integrated top tube mounts
    • Pedals sold separately; specs and images are subject to change
