This post will be brief and supply you with just enough information to make you hate me... if you don't already. My husband bought me a 2016 Salsa Warbird for my 46th Birthday. He stored it in my brothers garage until the unveil on Friday night. I was completely surprised by this gift since we had decided that we would just tweak my magnificent Kona Jake the Snake '11 instead of purchasing a new bike. I did not need a new bike.
My maiden voyage was a quick hour, approximately 15 miles of mixed road and gravel on my Birthday. My daughter's 9th birthday party had been scheduled for that night and I had errands to run beforehand. In just that short hour I was hooked. Damn, this bike is going to be fun.

First Reaction: Holy Sheeit!! This bike wants to move, fast. I love the 34/50T gearing. I used every gear today and the shifting was superb. There are a few things I need to do to make it 'mine' and I will throw some more info your way.
I am one happy girl. Nice job Salsa, nice frickin' job!
Big thanks to Momentum Cycles for the speedy build and awesome customer service. I will be getting a bike fit at their shop also. New bike, different geometry I want to make sure I get the measurements correct.
Oooohhhhh, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Also... I have a Kona JTS for sale. Stay tuned for info on that.
