07 Mar 2019 Salsa Horsethief Carbon NX Eagle
While we can’t fully endorse the “one-bike-to-rule-them-all” concept, the Horsethief is probably about as close as we can suggest. The “just right” amounts of 120mm rear and 140mm front suspension match up well with the 29er wheel setup (though you could always choose to run 27.5 wheels if you’d like). The NX Eagle drivetrain provides a massive gear range for the ups and downs of trail life, while RockShox takes care of the bump absorption duties on both ends. 35mm uppers on the Revelation RC 140 fork provide excellent stiffness for on-trail stability, with reduced friction for excellent small bump compliance and mid-stroke support. In the rear, 120mm of Split Pivot® travel is managed by the proven RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock, with Solo Air™ and Sag Gradients™ for foolproof setup. One-bike-to-rule-them-all? With Horsethief, maybe…just maybe.
