#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY: Mike's Salsa Beargrease Carbon XX1


Knowing how to properly spec a bike Salsa spared no expense on this build kit, the XX1 derailleur, shifter and cranks are all color matched. I love hi-viz, and "nasty green" as one of my friends calls it.  This bike is super light and thats before going tubeless, I have even heard of people getting this bike down to 21.8 lbs with a crank swap and some other things.  Put me on the list for one of these next year please!  In designing this bike Salsa was able to make room for clearance of 4.8 tires while still not going to an unnecessary 190mm rear end which just gets rid of feet clearance.  This is one hell of a beautiful bike.
