No time for words as I need to sleep, lots of work and bike riding going on these days. How about you?

Hey BikeShopGirl,

Is that Spearfish2 your regular ride? How do you like it? I’m thinking about getting one but trying to decide between that and a Rocky Mountain Element 930.

If you have a minute I’d really like to hear what you think about the Spearfish specifically and Salsa bikes in general. It’s really hard to get a decent (unbiased) opinion out there when shop folks are trying to sell you what they have on their floor.

Hey Earl!

A short disclaimer – I sell Salsa Cycles.

In truth I have ridden Salsa for several years, long before I sold them and I was simply a bike shop employee that saved long and hard for her bikes.

I currently ride a Spearfish because for what I do, local mountain bike rides, 8 hour rides in Pisgah national forest, 24 hour solo mountain bike rides, and even riding on the road, it is PERFECT. 100mm in the front, 80mm in the rear.

The other part of Salsa I’ve been drawn to in the past 4 years is the culture around the brand. I live their mantra, their customer service and even their marketing.

Where and how do you ride?
