Salsa's Horsethief 2 is their any-trail, anywhere-in-the-world bike. If you like to experience new trails, this is your bike. Extremely capable and confidence inspiring, it handles big-mountain aggressive terrain with ease with its 120mm-travel Salsa heat-treated, shaped 6066-aluminum frame with active Split Pivot rear suspension. Combine that with a longer top tube so you can run the go-fast combo of a short stem and wide bars, and you have a demon descender. Components include a tapered Fox F29 CTD Evolution fork and a Fox Float CTD soaking up the bumps in the back. SRAM's X7/X9 drivetrain ensures your shifting is spot on and Avid Elixir 7 Trail hydraulic disc brakes haul the speed down. Plus, Stan's 29er wheels with wide Schwalbe tires and a quality Salsa stem and bar with a fine Truvativ seatpost and WTB seat round out this ready ride.
