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

Journeyer Flat Bar Acolyte 650b is all about finding the easiest path to gravel riding. The aluminum frame and Fantail aluminum fork are designed with our all-around gravel geometry for a comfortable riding position. The flat handlebar grants more leverage and keeps you seated upright.

Our on-bike cargo features give you a place to store everything you might need on your rides, from bottle and accessory mounts to front and rear racks and Three-Pack fork mounts. 650b x 47 mm wheels and tires provide plenty of cushion and grip for a comfortable, confident ride. MicroSHIFT’s simple, reliable, and wide-range Acolyte 1 x 8 drivetrain rounds out this flat bar gravel bike build for a do-it-all machine that’s happy to check out new gravel routes or take you around town.
