We spend extra time and care building, testing and re-boxing your bike before it leaves. This takes approximately 4 business days to prepare the shippment. This extra step and time allows us to ensure that when your bike arrives to you it will be very easy to assemble for most anyone. Most bikes do not include pedals, so make sure to choose some for your new bike so we can ship them in the same box and you can get our riding quicker!Journeyer Claris 700c makes it easy to get into gravel. We designed its all-new aluminum frame and Fantail aluminum fork around comfortable geometry and versatile features. The fender, rack, accessory, and Three-Pack mounts let you outfit it just the way you want. Gravel riding on a hot day? Load up with extra water. Commuting? Add a rack and fenders and keep your eyes open for fun side roads and paths. Going bikepacking? Our Anything Cages hold your gear in under-utilized space for a minimal setup. The 700c x 38 mm wheel and tire package rolls quickly and smoothly on pavement, but with enough traction for loose dirt and gravel. Shimano's Claris 2 x 8-speed drivetrain grants you the gear range to take on uphill grinds or take advantage of tailwinds. All of these features come together in an affordable package that might make it the best beginner gravel bike out there.
Journeyer is Salsas workhorse road and gravel adventure machine. This versatile platform is a gateway to gravel riding. The confidence of its redesigned aluminum frame and carbon fork attracts mixed-surface riders, while its cargo capacity appeals to bikepackers. Journeyers fender mounts, rack mounts, wheel size compatibility, and handlebar options suit riders seeking a do-it-all bike.
