2013 Salsa Warbird Disc Brake Gravel Road Bike Spotted
The folks at XXCMag were on hand at Salsa Cycles’s dealer event inside QBP’s Saddle Drive and snapped these pics of the new Salsa Warbird.
We caught wind of this thing when we visited ENVE’s factory and spied the new disc brake road bike fork, but had to wait until now to see what it’d be mounted on.
That they’re using the road fork and not the cyclocross one hints at the bike’s geometry and intended use. UPDATE: Turns out this one is using the cyclocross fork and a new disc-specific road bike is coming. More on that soon, see comments from Salsa below.
Two versions appear to be making their way to dealers, the alloy model shown here and a titanium Warbird shown after the break. More details as we get them…
