We spend extra time and care building, testing and re-boxing your bike before it leaves. This takes approximately 5 business days beyond the ship date shown on this page. 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!Timberjack is Salsa's aggressive trail hardtail.

I didn't know what to expect from Salsa, but I'm not disappointed in the slightest. Boasting the latest SLX 1x12 drivetrain (microspline, no less), a DROPPER post, 27.5 tires, and mounting points galore, this bike is ready for nearly any adventure. You can even experiment with chainstay length via the Alternator dropouts. This bike feels designed to be easily adaptable to a rider's uses.
