SALSA WARBIRD 3
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.
