Journeyer is Salsa’s 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. Journeyer’s fender mounts, rack mounts, wheel size compatibility, and handlebar options suit riders seeking a do-it-all bike.


Overview

Our inspiring review is coming soon for now, here is what Salsa has to say:

We set out to make Journeyer Advent 650b among the best gravel and adventure bikes for riders who want something versatile. Journeyer’s new aluminum frame and Fantail aluminum fork feature all-around gravel geometry for comfort and assurance on harsh roads and paths. Journeyer offers dozens of configuration options thanks to its rack and fender mounts, Three-Pack mounts on the fork, top tube and accessory mounts, and ample space for bottles.

Set it up for weekend gravel rides, bikepacking overnighters, or your everyday errands. The 650b x 47 mm wheel and tire setup accelerates quickly and offers a nice, wide contact patch for grip on every road surface. The finishing touch? MicroSHIFT’s Advent 1 x 9 drivetrain, with a wide gear range and high reliability factor. Hop on a Journeyer and see where it can take you.
