Just Roll With It

Yesterday was quite a day. We shared some info with our dealers about some fun and exciting new products. One of the images got leaked. Our plan took a new turn. We decided to have some fun and just roll with it.

I'm guessing if you saw the first images, that the speculation has already begun. We know we won't and can't please all. That's OK. We can't be everything to everyone. That is what other BIG brands do. We also know that these products will resonate with certain folks. Based on emails and comments, they already have.

Now about the picture that was leaked yesterday. Here is another picture so you don't have to go looking for images. This is a our new titanium geared specific El Mariachi.

We've been riding ti prototypes for a year. In fact, Joe Meiser won Trans Iowa last year on a titanium prototype. And for those still longing for a new steel El Mariachi and Ala Carte, we are still working on those too. Tooling for our proprietary steel tubes is almost complete.

Last but not least, for all my single speeding friends that panicked and emailed me yesterday because the one leaked picture they saw wasn't single speed compatible, we haven't forgotten about single speeding. Please find peace knowing we are working on it and please remember that we like to ride single speed too. The first ones won't be ti, but after that who knows?

For pricing, finish, graphics, spec, availability, ordering, details, etc, you will have to just wait until we can properly release the information. Monday or Tuesday of next week, we'll share pricing and ordering details.

Over the next week and building up to an official dealer viewing at Frostbike (February), we will be sharing bits of information and sneak peeks here on the blog. Who knows, if you are in the right place at the right time you just might see some of it out being ridden and tested....In fact I bet you already have.

Until then, we are going to keep working on all these projects. Thanks for all your time today and I hope you enjoyed the post. I know I did!

Ride & Smile!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jason Boucher

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.

Awesome… I can finally talk about it!  I'm very, very excited about this new frame and can't wait to be one of the first outside Salsa's hallowed walls to sit astride one.

Thanks for taking the leap.  I'm sure it's going to be an awesome bike.

Cheers,
MG

Looks great! I can't wait to see what the SS offerings will be!

Very nice. Great job Salsa.

Can a Ti Ala Carte be far behind?  Oh, and perhaps also a revived Primero, now with manipulated Ti tubing for greater stiffness?  Nice thoughts for me to go to bed with tonight!

With all the speculation of Ti offerings, I can only hope/dream of a Ti La Cruz or CCC…

I'd like to see disc tabs on the Ti La Cruz…. then a Ti tradional geometry roadie. Is that asking too much?
