The ends of the Earth are calling. Answer on Salsa's stainless steel Vaya Travel. The quadruple-butted stainless steel tubing offers an incredible ride whether you're heading down to the store, or on a cross-country trek. S&S Couplers make it easy to pack this bike for your journey. The frame is designed around a heads-up, all-day-comfortable touring geometry, has clearance for 42mm tires, and is dressed up with mounting points for front and rear racks, fenders, and a bevy of water bottles (all sold separately). A pair of ultra-durable Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour tires speed you on your way, and the XT/DT Swiss wheelset is built for the long haul. The Shimano Ultegra drivetrain with a mountain-climbing triple crank is a great road companion on casual rides and fully loaded tours, with quick, smooth shifts and a cross-country-capable gear range. All-conditions stopping power is key when you're on the road, and a pair of Avid BB7S mechanical disc brakes ensure that you have total control at hand. A Salsa handlebar and Svelte WTB saddle ramp up rider comfort and Thomson's incredible stem and seatpost provide rock solid performance and a bit of eye candy for your bike.
