Salsa Deadwood SUS - New 29+ Full Suspension Bike
« on: February 21, 2017, 10:24:53 AM »
29+, Full Suspension Carbon (front triangle), SRAM X01 Eagle, looks like a winner to me.  Although Salsa is asking a high-end price for the high-end build ($5999).  If they cut the price and added some carbon wheels, it would be a much more enticing.  Maybe check back this time next year and see if it goes on sale as a 2017 leftover.

 I still think the industry is (slowly) moving toward plus bikes, nice to see Salsa jump in with a nice offering.

You'd think they'd be able to route some of the cables through the frame....

I guess some frame designers believe that some riders don't like internal cable routing.  I prefer it myself, it's a much cleaner look.
