Salsa Warbird 105
Well cared for and tough as nails.

This has been my gravel bike, commuter, attempt at cyclocross and triathlon, and trying to keep up with my wife bike. It can do almost everything. Three water bottle mounts, famous wishbone seat stays for vibration reduction, carbon matching fork. Lots of upgrades and some customization options if you buy it. Thanks for looking!

2016 Salsa Warbird aluminum frame in Orange (the fastest color). I put the 105 on. Frame is in good shape with a couple of cosmetic exceptions which I've included pictures of.
58cm - I'm right at 6ft tall, about 31 in. inseam. You could be a bit shorter or a fair bit taller I think.

I just did a refresh on this bike a couple months ago, so lots of new, too.

- 105 5800 throughout, 2x11 speed - I'll put a brand new chain on for the buyer. I've been running Molten Speed Wax to keep it clean, but know not many people want to do that.
+ TRP Spyre disc brakes, 160mm front, 140mm rear. Brand new semi-metallic brake pads on both. Shimano rotors.
+ Jagwire Elite Link housing in blue (matches the blue stripes). Just refreshed the housing, link liners, and cables with the polished shift and brake cables. Inline barrel adjusters. Internal shift routing. Links make the brake lines compressionless, so no spongey housing.
+ Wheels Manufacturing thread together bottom bracket - maybe 2 months old
- small chain ring is very new, and I don’t use the big one much…
+ Whisky Parts #7 seatpost. Not cut, so lots of available length.
- New hoods and bar tape when I did the cables and housing
+ New version 105 front derailleur. I love this thing over the old ones, it just snaps into the big ring.

I currently have a Pioneer power meter on the left crank arm, if you want it, we can discuss price, but I'm planning on replacing it with a new arm and selling it separately.

- 15x100mm through axle front with DT Swiss RWS axle
- 12x142mm through axle rear with DT Swiss RWS axle
- Salsa hubs laced to WTB rims. I cleaned the bearings (well) and repacked them with Phil Wood grease. Gorilla tape rim tape
- 105 11-34 cassette - basically new

Tire options!
I'll put one of these one for you:
Clement/Donnelly X'Plor MSO gravel tires - new
Clement/Donnelly Crusade PDX cyclocross tires - I did one Wednesday night cross race on these
or Schwalbe Marathon commuter/road tires
Buyers choice

Drivetrain option!
+ If you're into gravel like the DK, Dairy Roubaix, things with climbing: I'll subsitute the 105 cassette/derailleur for an 11-40 cassette with a Shimano SLX Shadow+ derailleur and Wolf Tooth Tanpan (and a new cable). I can install it all for you, or just give it to you for your own tinkering time. The cassette is a bit older than the 105, so we'll call that the tradeoff for the cost of the Tanpan.

So this is $3,000+ worth of bike and upgrades, and I'd like to get $1,700 for it.

Let me know what questions you have! Thanks!
