Salsa Timberjack and Journeyman Bike Reviews

The Salsa Timberjack is an excellent hardtail trail bike with extra-wide tires and Rockshox Sektor suspension featuring impressive DebonAir technology. If you prefer a bike better suited for Austin’s city streets, the Salsa Journeyman is an all-road bike with 700c wheels that gives more speed and efficiency on roads. It boasts an aluminum frame, carbon Fantail Deluxe fork, and SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain. All of these components are designed to minimize weight, thus giving you more energy to get out and explore.

Salsa Timberjack SLX 27.5"

We stock the Timberjack SLX 27.5", perfect for Austin's rocky terrain. A mix of proprietary high-end aluminium tubes creates a light, durable frame and the geometry inspires confidence with a longer top tube, shorter stem, and the same offsets and angles across all frame sizes. So everyone on a Timberjack gets the same great ride feel. And 27.5" x 2.8" tires offer unparalleled traction and bump smoothing cushion, especially when paired with the 130mm of travel offered by the Tmberjack's Rockshox Recon RL fork. And if you're getting a little rowdy out there, the Timberjack comes equipped with a zero offset Trazx dropper post.

Timberjack's Aleternator dropuouts offer great versatility for those interested in running single speed. But the SLX model we stock runs Shimano's workhorse 1x SLX groupset for added capability. With multiple bottle cages for those going the distance, full length cable housing to keep contaminants out, and a rack-friendly rear end, the Timberjack is your go-to 26.5" MTB hardtail.

Regularly $1,599 the Timberjack SLX 27.5" is now $1,399.

Looking for a do it all road machine? Want to go further and see more? Both? The Salsa Journeyman is for you.

With 700c wheels and 38mm tires, the Journeyman is up for any road you throw out it. The larger wheel size is fast and efficient, and the wide tires can handle roads in any condition--from fast rolling fresh pavement on the way to work, to gravel farm roads outside of town. The Jouneyman's aluminum frame is light and strong. And the full aluminum frame with it's multiple bottle and rack mounts make the Journeyman a veritable Swiss army knife while keeping the price down.

The Journeyman is designed around the same stable and comfortable geometry found on the Warbird and Vaya Salsa models, with slight changes to accommodate the upright riding position offered by the flat bar found on the Shimano Claris equipped Journeyman that we stock here at the shop. Like many of the bikes in Salsa's line-up, the Journeyman runs full length housing, has mounts for multiple racks, and the Journeyman has mounts for a top tube bag as well as front and rear full fenders.

So load your Jouneyman up for a weekend adventure. Or strip it down and whip around town on a weekend afternoon. The Journeyman will help you find the ride you're looking for.

The Journeyman Flat Bar Claris is normally $949 and is now on sale for $799.
