Salsa Vaya Frame & Forks Reluctantly up for sale is my beautiful Salsa Vaya frameset...... The frame is a 2013 Salsa Vaya 3. The forks are genuine Salsa Vaya steel forks from a 2012 model (I think) but the axle to crown measurement and rake are exactly the same. The frame is in very good shape.... Bar a few bits of light cable rub and some very minor chain slap (protection added after it was noticed) it is in excellent condition, no dings or dents.The forks have done a little more work but are still in great shape, just a few more scratches but again no dings or dents. Also included is a Salsa seatclamp, a brand new seatpost, Ritchey ten headset, 3t 70mm stem and On One Midge flared drop bars. If I get the asking price I will also throw in some brand new bar tape in black, an SRAM rival 10 speed rear mech and some bottle cages. I may have some other bits I can chuck in for free to help with the build... I also have a Truvativ/SRAM x9 chain set with 28/42t rings that has a good road/gravel riding ratio for this frame..... Will be listed shortly The frame is a 58cm....
I'm 6 foot with long arms and I found it very comfortable with a 70mm stem and the On One Midge flared drops. The riding position is fairly upright compared to a full on drop bar road bike and I found it easy to ride all day.
The steel frame and fork are also very forgiving and paired with nice fat rubber the ride is smooth. Geometry can be found on the Salsa website page for the 2013 Salsa Vaya 3. This builds into one of the best touring road bikes on earth..... These frames have been everywhere and, along with the Surly Long Haul Trucker, are the go to epic tour choice.
With big tyres they can handle a surprising amount of off tarmac riding, and comfortably. Unlike the LHT, they ride well loaded or unloaded (I found the LHT a little'nervous' unloaded, couldn't put my finger on it). Plenty of braze ons and mounts for any configuration of racks and bottle cages.... Both on the frame and the fork. The frame and parts will be well packaged and sent recorded and insured.Any questions at all please just ask. If you would like any further images, again, just let me know.
