I know I've written about this before, but why do some brands speak to us? What is it about some brands that evoke deeply emotional and possibly irrational responses? I see this on how some approach Apple devices and BME vehicles. I think I'm the same about salsa bikes. There is something about them that calls to me. Maybe it is how they are all about adventure and long distances. Or perhaps it is that so many people who ride the Tour Divide do it on a Salsa. Whatever it is, I think I'm going to buy a Salsa Journeyman. If it is as good as it appears on could even be what I use for the Tour Aoteatoa. Right now, I'm even thinking I'll create a video about it!
