Looking for a Salsa Horsethief? Our lead mechanic & stunt model, Toby, has recently been custom building a few for our customers here in Tucson. He’s been recommending very solid, light builds, with fun splashes of color that do the job over the long haul.

Seeing how hard it is to find Salsa Horsethieves as complete builds these days, we decided to offer up a size run of them built to Toby’s bikepacking worthy specifications. We call it the Campfire Build. You can call it a non-stop blast on the trail when you make this bicycle yours.

Note: The frame of this bicycle in medium and extra large is available as frame only or can be custom built to your specification.

Looking for a Salsa Horsethief? Our lead mechanic & stunt model, Toby, has recently been custom building a few for our customers here in Tucson. He’s been recommending very solid, light builds, with fun splashes of color that do the job over the long haul.

And here is what Salsa has to say:

Horsethief is one bike for many trails. From mastering your local trails to discovering new destinations, Horsethief has your back. It’s capable of pushing through technical terrain, instills confidence while riding aggressively, and pairs well with beautiful vistas and a post-ride beverage.

Features

  • Carbon frame and seat stays featuring the Split Pivot suspension design with 120mm of efficient travel, remaining fully active under braking while supportive throughout its travel, paired with a 140mm suspension fork
  • A short stem paired with long top tube, combined with a 67-degree head tube angle provides descending confidence, yet balances overall wheelbase length and slow speed maneuverability
  • Two full-size bottle cage mounts fit inside the front triangle on all frame sizes. Pair with Anything Bracket and Rescue Roll for pack-free singletrack bliss
  • Super Boost 157 x 12mm rear hub spacing combined with a standard width bottom bracket results in a 432mm chainstay length that’s 5mm shorter than previous-generations
  • Rear Flip chip adjusts head tube angle and bottom bracket height for terrain, wheel size, and personal preference
  • Clearance for multiple wheel/tire combinations: 27.5 x 2.8 – 3.0″and 29 x 2.2 – 2.6’’
