We took a little grief for our coverage of the new Horsethief at Eurobike, so we met up with Tim Krueger, brand manager for Salsa Cycles, at Interbike’s (windy) outdoor demo to get the facts straight. He also showed us the new titanium Mukluk, their new top model for snow bikes.
We weighed a few of the 29ers, too. See ’em on the scale after the break…
The Spearfish 2 with X9 group and Stan’s NoTubes Arch rims on Formula hubs comes in at 27lbs 2oz (Large).
The top of the line Spearfish 1 comes in at 26lbs 13oz (XL) with an X0/X9 mix, Fox fork and Stan’s NoTubes Arch rims on DT Swiss hubs.
The Horsethief with X9 build, Fox fork and NoTubes Flow wheels comes in at 29lbs 14oz.
