Salsa Titanium Update - Feb 2, 2011

We have been getting quite a few questions about or titanium frame & bike production. Things are moving along nicely now and we are in full production. Here is the production plan.   

New El Mariachi Ti - We shared all the details here on our blog last week, but we have a new El Mariachi Ti. The great news here is that we have already shipped new frames & bikes to some stocking dealers.  More complete bikes are in production as I write this. 

The new Fargo Ti is in finishing right now. These will be in stock soon. Almost all of this first production has been presold to through our stocking dealers so please contact one of them for ordering info.

The new Selma Ti frames are up next followed by Vaya Ti frames. I suspect we may see Selma's here later this month and Vaya Ti frames will be March. Those are both estimates right now.

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.

Ti bikes looking great.  Any updates on Casseroll?  Thanks!

Oh my, I have to admit that I just love these ti bikes!  Any of them would look really nice sitting next to my Spearfish…....

Thanks for the update. Any news/updates on the Ti La Cruz?

I hope the price of Ti continues to drop for a lot of Salsa folk would like to ride Ti but just can’t afford it. Prices are getting better but the material is still out of reach for most. I’m curious whether you all are partnered with Lynskey Performance? Can you say anything about where the frames are made?

How long must we wait for the Ti Mukluk?  My guess is that it is only a matter of time.

Awesome. Ti road bike coming?  Or a traditional-style steel road bike like the La Raza?

This might be a silly question, but how was the Selma Ti pictured above converted into a single speed? It’s hard to tell from the picture. Does it have a chain tensioner?

The Selma doesn’t have the frame tensioners like the El Mariachi?

Thanks.

Woops, I think the picture is referencing the Selma Ti which does have the alternator dropouts. I was getting confused with the Fargo Ti.

Thanks.

Does anyone know the frame weight on Miss Ti Selma?

I have a basement full of Salsas… Selma, Mamasita, Dos Niner, 2 Chili Con Crosso’s, Campeon, and a new Podio. This company has moved so far away from making beautiful race worthy bikes that I am now stuck with a basement full of has beens. The new Selma Ti looks like a fat hog compared to the beautiful blue scandium jewel I have.  Just wanted to let you know that I am going to have a garage sale. If you want to buy any of them back I would be happy to sell them cheap!

Hmmm Curious…
How can you say the selma, mamasita, and dos aren’t race worthy? sounds like the engine to me… Have both kicked arse and had my arse kicked by fine racers on them…
how much you want for them since they can’t be worth much too you-I could always use another!
