Salsa Cycles Selma Ti 29er Hardtail

5/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

The Selma Ti is our dedicated singlespeed mountain bike. Crafted from 3/2.5 seamless titanium, the frame combines the unmistakable performance of titanium with our Alternator dropouts.As a frame material, titanium offers a unique balance of strength, low weight, stiffness, vibration damping, and durability. Our Alternator dropouts are not only elegant, but are a quick, efficient, and reliable solution for singlespeed drivetrain tensioning. Ti tubing, Salsa geometry, big wheels, and the simplicity of a singlespeed drivetrain…sounds beautiful to us.

    Strengths:    multi-use : SS or geared. Excellent ride qualities. Value

    Weaknesses:    haven't found any yet

    Bottom Line:   
    My abilities on this bike far surpass any other ride I have had. The frame is responsive and geometry is dialed in. The Salsa Alternator dropout is an excellent design. (for $20 I picked up the dropout with the derailleur hanger for future bike-packing etc).

    I have a found a new joy in biking- abilities to climb longer, descend faster, and generally love biking on an entirely new level.

    How much of my new abilities are due to this frame? Honestly I can't tell as this is my first 29er, first tubeless wheelset, first carbon fork, and first single speed. Combined these features create a killer bike.

    If you want to build a 20lb do-it-all bike, this frame should be high on your list.

    Salsa is a great company. Titanium is dreamy. This bike will make you happy.

    Selma Ti headtube inserts creak/tick

    My 2012 Selma Ti singlespeed (lynskey made ) starts creaking between the frame and headtube inserts. I've had two shops remove them and grease/ti prep them and all is well for a few months. With a 12-hour and 50mile races coming up in the next few weeks, I dread the thought of having the bike creak ... Read More »

    Selma Ti limited

    So with the 2013 El Mariachi Ti going overseas and gaining an Alternator dropout, the USA made Selma Ti is not more (had only a 2012 run) Any idea on how many of these frames were made? Might it go down as one of the sweetest hard tails ever for SS use, or will the redesigned 2013 El Mariachi T ... Read More »
