Yeah, that new salsa update is rad. That's a bike I'm considering for the future/this coming summer!

Anyone do triathlons? I just signed up for a sprint length one to take place next month. I'm a pretty shit swimmer, so that part will definitely be my week leg. I've always been drawn to the idea of being fit for pretty well any activity, training for triathlons seems like the best way to accomplish this, so here we are :lol:

I've been toying with the idea of picking up a Salsa Journeyman. My trail bike (Trek Stache) is a little overkill for the gravel trails and roads around here

i still have a bone chip in my right forearm from getting doored while riding to the 4th Street train station in San Francisco. it was fortunate that it was my arm, though, because it deflected the Econoline door edge that would otherwise have gone straight into my face.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat

The Stache is a beast and probably the best Plus bike you can buy off the shelf. I seriously regret buying the Fuse over the Stache (couple hundred bucks cheaper and came with a dropper so I thought it would be better in the long run but it's not).

Oh, I wouldn't get rid of the Stache and would still ride it all the time. Mine is a bit older (2014 I think) and was converted to a 1x9; I absolutely love it. I just want something a little more road oriented due to the lack of proper trails around my house

I've always been drawn to the idea of being fit for pretty well any activity, training for triathlons seems like the best way to accomplish this, so here we are :lol:


I did my first triathlon in August (Xterra - sprint distance MTB and trail run). I'm a strong rider an can knock out a 10k run relatively easy. But I am NOT a strong swimmer. I did a fair amount of training, swimming open water and working up to 3/4 mile.

I finished the race but it was ugly. I totally panicked in the swim leg and over exerted myself (first race, first time in a wetsuit, couldn't breathe etc). I honestly considered tapping out (or just dying). I pretty much just treaded water for 25 minutes and was totally exhausted 1/3 through the race. I pushed really hard on the bike leg to make up time, and by the time I started the run my legs were totally shot with the worst cramps I've ever had. My goal of sub 10 minute miles turned into almost 12. I cramped so hard about 150 yards from the finish I couldn't walk and got passed by a lady in her 60s. Pretty humbling. :lol:

The good: with all the training I'm in the best shape of my life. And I didn't finish last in my age group.

The bad: swimming sucks balls. Learn how to breathe properly. I also recommend doing some legit "brick" training to prepare your body for the transition to different activities (I didn't do this). Getting off the bike and attempting to run was a complete bitch.

Good luck and KICK ASS. :thumb:

Hey! Thanks for getting back to this. Sorry it took me so long to see it :facepalm:

I'm swimming 3x a week and trying to do some brick training. The breathing is really the worst part. I keep trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, getting a plan, getting back in the pool and it's still terribly hard. As far as brick training goes, the move from pool to bike isn't too bad in training, but the bike to run is terrible. And in the actual events, I imagine swim to the bike will be worse because of adrenalin and open water swimming is different from the pool. I'm always nervous that I'm going to fall off the treadmill lol.

I'm trying to find an Xterra one for this coming summer but I don't see any posted yet. Trying to plan out a fun mix of a couple running events, some triathlons, and a big bike event that my sister wants to do. Should be a fit summer :lol:
