Gravel Grinder News: Salsa Cycles Announces New Colors, Spec On Warbird, Warroad, Cutthroat – by Guitar Ted
Salsa Cycles released information today on new colors and specifications for their Warbird, Warroad, and Cutthroat drop bar bikes. These represent the core of Salsa’s road, gravel, and bikepacking segments. There are no design changes nor any news on a new model in this category.
Following are some images with spec and pricing information. Comments will follow after the images.
Comments: There will be frame sets offered for Warroad, Cutthroat, and Warbird in a basic black livery. Those are going to cost $2299.00 for the Warroad and Warbird and $2599.00 for the Cutthroat.
Also, Salsa Cycles advises that the Cutthroat GRX 600, the Warbird GRX 810, and the Warroad Ultegra will not be available until Fall 2022. Furthermore, the Warroad Ultegra 12 Di2 will not be available until Winter 2022.
We’ve seen some commentary to the effect that some of you are looking for steel or titanium gravel/bikepacking drop bar bikes similar to what is being seen from other companies. However; that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon at Salsa Cycles.

Man. I ride a fair bit, devote a decent budget to the hobby, and make ok money, I think. But sheesh, bikes are getting expensive. I’m curious as to how many people drop $8k on a bike.
You should see the price of bikes in Australia its nuts
I love that yellow Cutthroat. I got a 2021 with a 2x GRX, I wouldn’t have been happy with the 1X. I get asked often “What kinda bike is that?” Here in Los Angeles. Most companies put their name and logo and whatever else in big bold lettering so everyone knows that it’s an “XYZ”. The only part that says “Salsa” is on the top of the downtube, I have. Full frame bag bolted inside that triangle so the “Salsa” disappears. The little chili pepper is all that’s left and the average jerkoff won’t know wtf that means. This is all good imo because a bike that has “TREK” in huge letters mind as well say “Steal Me”. My Ridley spent years completely covered up, I plan to start on the Cutthroat soon to make it not stick out. Anywhere.
