I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

VAYA gearing looks good to me…yes it does make sense. I ride a LHT and could enjoy taking the VAYA for a spin. Why is the bike spec'd with BB5 brakes? BB7's would be maybe a $20.00 upgrade for Salsa. It would cost the customer around $100.00 to replace the lower grade brakes. Shouldn't a $1500 bike have the better disk brakes?

Why are there millimeters? Why can't there be inches?

I know the metric system is "cool" and so very Euro, but, I learned the US Standard system and it's frustrating to see mm everywhere. 

But I do acknowledge that you have inches on the actual pages.

Thank you for that.

Road bikes are always in metric.  it makes it easier to compare road bikes from all the brands. 
I 2nd the suggestion for BB7's.  Best mech discs out there by a mile (2.2km), so why not use them? 
I'm glad you're going with a compact crank.  I've got a triple on my LHT and it's just a bunch of redundant gears with a wide geared cassette (12-36 9spd is available from Shimano now - that's crazy wide!)
Glad to see the expansion of your road rides.  Peace.
