Just Released: Salsa Deadwood 29+

Just Released: Salsa Deadwood 29+

Deadwood SUS is our 29+ full-suspension short-travel trail bike. The rolling prowess of 29 x 3.0” tires with true-tracking, sure footed Split Pivot suspension gives “rubber adhesive” a whole new meaning. Frame geometry tailored specifically to the 29+ wheel diameter paired with 100mm front and 91mm rear travel yields a momentum-holding, flat corner-crushing ride whether racing or connecting widely-spaced points on unfamiliar maps.

Take a look at the full line up on the official Salsa Bicycles website and learn more on this Salsa blog post.... looks like a fun bike!
