2015 Editors choice – Salsa Vaya

One of our brands, Salsa Cycles, received a top pick from Bicycling magazines editor.  The 2015 Salsa Vaya 2 is a great touring bike, not the lightest, but its design and components give you a great ride.

The Salsa Vaya has been in our line up for some time now, and has been a favorite to many.  Salsa has been gaining some traction in the adventure bike world with the introduction of its fat bikes, the favorite Fargo, and its full suspension line up.  The Vaya 2 offers a 105 build, CroMoly tubing frame and fork, for a solid build.  Salsas cowbell bars add comfort for the long rides, and if you are cruising around town, or cruising between towns you will for sure enjoy the ride.

We currently have a Salsa Vaya 3, and Salsa Vaya 2 on clearance in store!  Come down and hop on this amazing bike before they are gone!!

Strava Art!

A new form of ‘Street Art’

Without any paint or altering any property, cyclists have taken to the streets and created some great art. From dinosaurs taking over the city to marriage proposals, Strava riders have mapped out certain streets and avenues using metropolitan areas as their own Etch-A-Sketch.  Most of these designs have been created in areas with compacted small streets, but I think there are some San Diegan cyclists that could step up and create some really great art.

Volvo Life Paint – New Reflective spray paint


Check out some cool engineering work that Volvo has helped produced.  It is a spray on paint that sticks to almost any surface and turns the object into a bright reflector.  If you drive at night in high traffic areas it might be a good idea.  Currently Volvo is only selling the item at 3 bike shops in Europe. If it takes off they do plan to mass market this.

What do you think? Would you wear this?
