2013 Salsa Vaya 2 Pic…

I can’t tell if it’s the one we’ve been seeing bits of…

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that this one is white, while the other one we saw was more cream colored.  This does look tasty, though.  Looks like Sram X9 in rear, possibly X7 in front with a ??? chainring?  Pic came from MTBR, but there’s no details yet.  Clement X’Plor MSO tires are new, but still sporting the DT Swiss X470 rims.  Also still looks like BB7 brakes.

EDIT:  Updated info on MTBR:

That updated spec is weird, as it clearly doesn’t match some of the kit shown in the picture…for example, the picture clearly shows an X-9 rear derailleur, and the spec shows SRAM Apex…

  1. Based on the graphics on this one, I think this is the “cream” one. If you watch the salsa saddle drive video and pause in on the matrix behind mike, it looks like this one is the second bike down, and an orange or red bike is the third one down. I totally sound like i have been studying the saddle drive movie like the zapruder film (because I have) because I am in the market for a vaya and have been going crazy ever since russ roca posted those pics on his flickr. example here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/russroca/7503403390/in/photostream

    • You may be right…I may be crazy.

      I don’t think you can go wrong either way. As noted above, the weirdness is that the just-released parts spec conflicts with the picture…
