The first thing you'll notice is the fork. It's not upside down. Salsa decided to build their new carbon Spearfish with the Rock Shox RS-1, their latest offering and a bit of a wild look. However, it's proven stiff, light and very durable in some pre-Iceman training rides.
The rest of the bike is all Salsa, and specifically another great integration of their Split Pivot rear suspension design. It's Salsa's big foray into full suspension carbon, and so far it's been nothing but mind-blowing. The traditional Iceman Cometh recipe has been a hardtail, but we have a sneaking suspicious you'll see at least a few of these out there on November 8.
