New Salsa Rustler in Aluminium, Plus New Range Colours

by 0

Salsa has revealed the new line up of colours and builds for the Salsa Horsethief, Spearfish and Rustler, plus a new Rustler frame in Aluminium. UK riders a can stand down however: due to import costs, you’ll only be getting the carbon frameset options here in the UK.

For our rest of world audience, here’s what you could be riding. There are no changes to the geometry – it’s all build kits and colours that have changed, including the addition of Fox suspension and carbon wheels on the top end models.

Salsa Spearfish

They say: 29” Progressive XC – built to crush stamina-testing terrain while thriving on technical climbs and descents.

  • Price: £3,000 frameset
What you UK lot can have

Salsa Horsethief

They say: 29” All-Around Trail – one bike for many trails.

  • Price: £3,000 frameset

Salsa Rustler

They say: 27.5” Playful Trail – rewards riders who want to throw some body language in the way they tackle trails.

  • Price: £3,000 frameset

If you want it rubbing in further about how much fun you could be having on a prettily coloured bike, if only you didn’t live in the UK, then there’s also these images:

Crisp leaves, dry rock slabs… if you can’t manage a trip to the USA to pick one up for yourself, check out UK distributor Lyon for the frameset options.

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
