Overview

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

Do you ever feel tempted by the rough-looking side roads and dirt detours you see while out riding? Journeyer Apex 1 650b is here to satisfy your curiosity. An all-new aluminum frame and our Waxwing carbon fork prioritize stability and comfort on all types of roads. We designed Journeyer with adventure-bike features, including fender, rack, and accessory mounts, plus Three-Pack mounts for extra supplies or camping gear. 650b wheels and high-volume 47 mm tires offer a large contact patch for great grip on loose surfaces.

SRAM’s Apex 1 drivetrain is a dependable ride partner with the gear range to take on hilly routes or downtown hustles. Journeyer has all the makings of an adventure bike — time to start planning your next getaway.
