We took a little grief for our coverage of the new Horsethief at Eurobike, so we met up with Tim Krueger, brand manager for Salsa Cycles, at Interbike’s (windy) outdoor demo to get the facts straight. He also showed us the new titanium Mukluk, their new top model for snow bikes.

We weighed a few of the 29ers, too. See ’em on the scale after the break…

I feel like the prices on these bikes are being kept a secret. I’d love to hear prices on all the Spearfish models.

Must get Horsethief…that looks like a fun bike, and reasonably priced. No need for carbon for me. Is it me or does it look like they leaned the Mukluk’s rotor up against that rock? Ouch. I want a Mukluk too, or and a La Cruz disc too. Damn salsa – great products!

Why does the Spearfish 1 come with a QR seat collar? Maybe just for the demo, but it has it is the catalog pics as well, and the web site spec says a black Salsa lip lock. Maybe Tim could clarify what the consumer spec will be. (I hope its a red lip lock- the red looks sweet)

The crew at WV Cycling are interested in the Spearfish. Gerry Pflug, sponsored rider has told us about the series in a sentence or two, but I’d love to see one in person, and get more info on it.

Just bought the 2012 Spearfish 2, it’s my third Salsa purchase this year. The Spearfish comes in handy on those rides my Ti Fargo cant handle. Okay I cant handle without a little squish. Love the bikes and the price of these stellar machines.
Thanks salsa for your attention to us less financially backed riders
