Named after a mountain-biking mecca in North Dakota, Salsa's
Spearfish 3 is designed to thrive and sustain you through ultra-endurance, long-distance rides and races. Its light and responsive Salsa butted and shaped 6066-aluminum frame with Split Pivot rear suspension technology lets you push yourself further, faster, and focus less on how far it is to the next feed station. In fact, Salsa-sponsored Kurt Refsnider broke the course record for the Arizona Trail Race 300 on his Spearfish. Like Kurt, you'll love the dialed geometry and extremely short 437mm chainstays for super-agile singletrack performance at speed and confidence-inspiring handling. Adding to the fine ride is a Fox F29 100mm-travel CTD (Climb/Trail/Descend) Evolution fork and Fox's 3-position CTD lever letting you optimize the suspension to the conditions on the fly. And, you'll love steamrolling everything in your path on the big Shimano/Sun 29er wheels with the Schwalbe treads biting hard. You also get Shimano's tasty 2x10 XT/Deore components, a fine SRAM crank, Shimano hydraulic discs for serious speed control and a choice bar and stem from Salsa with a WTB seat for top comfort as you race for 24 hours. Spearfish. Think long. Now think longer.
