SALSA WARBIRD 3

Urban Cyclist - - On Test -

The Warbird is a gravel racer, made for events like the famed 340-mile Trans Iowa. It has a long reach, short wheel­base and slack head an­gle. The hy­dro­formed alu­minium frame bleeds ver­sa­til­ity. It has clear­ance to run up to a 38c tyre for dirt and up to a 52t chain­ring if you set it up for speed. The han­dling is sta­ble but never dull. It smoth­ers bad roads yet still has a per­for­mance bias. It’s brilliant on dirt tracks.
