Salsa's Horsethief is their any-trail, anywhere-in-the-world frame. If you like to experience new trails, this is the machine for you. Extremely capable and confidence inspiring, it handles big-mountain aggressive terrain with ease with its 120mm-travel Salsa heat-treated, shaped 6066-aluminum chassis 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. Plus, you get the speed of a 29er and the plush ride of 120mm travel with slack angles and a low stance so you'll absolutely devour challenging terrain. To get the most out its downhill capabilities, the Horsethief is laterally stiff thanks to its 142 x 12mm rear axle and lack of pivots. It also features ISCG-05 chainguide tabs and a tapered head tube. For all-day riding in rugged terrain, steal a ride on the Horsethief!
