Salsa Unleashes the Bucksaw Carbon
Bucksaw_Carbon_forward

Last year, when Salsa introduced the Bucksaw full suspension fatbike, it caused quite a stir. It did, in fact, feature the then brand-new Rock Shox Bluto fork, which in itself was a catalyst for heated internet discussion.

Yesterday Salsa poured it on with the announcement of the Bucksaw Carbon. A full-suspension fatbike with a carbon front triangle, seat stay and an aluminum chainstay. This sheds 300 grams off the total frame weight.

If this is your kinda thing, and how can it not be, then head over to Salsa to see more!

State Bicycle Co’s Singlespeed Off-Road Division
ThunderGallery-17-Crop

First debuted at Interbike, State Bicycle Co’s new singlespeed off-road division is now available for pre-order with a mid-November delivery. Their affordable cross bikes are available with a Reynolds wheel upgrade – which is almost as much as the bike itself, or as frames to be built us to your specification. Blastin into the fat marketplace are two singlespeed fat bikes, one coming in under $500 with an admittedly fun coaster brake setup and another with disc brakes for under $700.

See the full State Bicycle Co Off-Road Division below.

The Tuscany Trail

This looks amazing! Count me in next year…

“What is Tuscany Trail? It’s an adventure, not a race, in other words an experience: an unusual, exciting and uncertain experience. A bikepacking experience. It’s unsupported: there’s a start and a GPS track, but nothing more. Everybody has to plan the course looking at their needs and attitudes or listening to what their body communicates. There’ll be who is challenging himself and who’s taking it easy, relishing the stunning view.

640 km (400 miles), with an elevation gain of 12000m (39000 feet), where half of them are on gravel roads and singletrack.

This is Tuscany Trail.”

Horse Cycles: 29’r Complete
Horse29r

It’s hard sometimes to visualize a bike’s potential from just a frame photo, which is probably why Thomas built up one of those 29’r framesets as a complete for a photo shoot. I still think this is one of the nicer 29’r production frames I’ve seen on the market and at that price, who can complain? Lovely. See more at the Horse Cycles Flickr and pricing at Horse Cycles.
