Journeyman Flat Bar Sora 700

In our Salsa Journeyman review, we took three 650B builds on an epic trip through the wilds of Montana to see how this budget off-road drop-bar rig performs
Salsa is an iconic bike brand that's been doing off-road capable drop bar bikes longer than most. The Journeyman brings this expertise and experience to a lower price, and there’s a lot to like about this pink beauty. But its beauty is only skin deep. While the ride and handling are very good, and there are some good components, it’s under specced compared to rivals which make it hard to recommend.
