Overview

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

Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check’s braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages, and like the Cross-Check its ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie.

It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else.
