#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY- Kevin's Salsa Cycles Warbird Carbon
Kevin contacted us to build the bike of his dreams, after the initial phone conversation we figured out the right bike, spec for his usage and got to ordering. It's been nearly impossible for us to keep up with the demand for the Salsa Cycles Warbird, but by some miracle, we snagged one more in a 56 and away we went. Custom builds allow for some rather unique builds. Taking into account that this was going to get thrashed and ridden on everything we used Chris King hubs, HED Belgium Plus rims, SRAM Rival 1/x01 Mix. with a 10/42 cassette. 1x11 has even made its way to all road and gravel bikes. It just makes sense in most cases. The build didn't stop there, Thomson bits for the cockpit, Brooks Cambium saddle and a set of the new Terravail tires set up tubeless round off this build. Kevin swung by to finalize the fit and pick up his bike and is out there enjoying it now.
