Bill, a longtime road rider, decided it was time to toe the water in some dirt. (toe the dirt?)
Enter the Salsa Warbird. A purpose-built gravel grinding machine. The designers at Salsa have this model pretty much dialed in, with a comfortable ride, complementary drivetrain gearing, mechanical disc brakes, and sure footed geometry.
The bike comes stock with many component highlights that were just recently the sort of thing you’d only see on a well modified gravel grinder. Things like the No Tubes Iron Cross tubeless wheelset, and the more comfortable Enve fork.
Since getting his new bike, Bill has been blasting fire roads and forgotten corners of the countryside. He comes into the shop with an ear to ear grin, and a dusty bike… life is good.
