Allow me to say this right off the bat: I have no inside line. No insider information. No amount of prying has made me privy to any info. I’m not a bike shop employee, I’m not provided with any information that’s not available to the rest of the world.
That said, I’m a fervent observer of all things Salsa. So I’ve noticed things like this:
1. Salsa is having a sale on existing full-suspension bikes.
2. Carytown Bicycle Company is probably violating a non-disclosure agreement by posting that Salsa is releasing new FS bikes.
3. Salsa has a blank page reserved on their website about split-pivot full suspension bikes.
4. Some schmoe on MTBR is also promising updates to Salsa’s FS bikes.
I’m perhaps not the brightest person in the world, but I think I see a pattern here. What is a Split Pivot you ask? Wikipedia to the rescue.
Frankly, I love my Superfish, and don’t foresee any change in mountain bikes in my future. She’s perrrrrrrrfect. But I’ll be interested to see what Salsa comes out with.
