Alright rumor mill, any chance Salsa has a new steel hardtail in the works? I know the El Mar seems has long been replaced with the Timberjack, but I sure think Salsa is missing out on a big segment of the bikepacking/ultra/adventure scene without a non-drop bar steel hardtail in their lineup. I've owned a myriad of Salsas and Surlys, and I would be ecstatic to pick up a modern geometry steel HT that doesn't weigh the metric sh*t ton of the Surly KM. I know they both are under the parent QBP company, and I sure hope the latest marketing and branding moves haven't abandoned those steel roots forever. Anybody think it will happen? A boy can dream..
