The new design of the Warbird in carbon

Something New: The bicycle industry has a way to entice us with new baubles every year. You think it cannot get any better, and then…….something comes along and it does. Obviously that is different for everyone, but for a lot of folks, the light, fluid forms of carbon fiber get knees wobbly and hearts racing. Salsa Cycles debuted a new Warbird, and it isn’t titanium, but carbon fiber. It certainly garnered a lot of attention at Frostbike 2015.

We’ll have more on this bike and its aluminum siblings real soon, but for now, we’ll leave you with this image and maybe, just maybe- it will motivate you to new heights for 2015. Or maybe it will solidify your love for metal framed bikes!

  1. Kudos to you Mark, did you notice Mr Ek was adoring his Warbird in the pic with a TI V9 tag? Simple race that makes a big difference in the world.
