Salsa Vaya Vs Journeyman - Cycle Travel Overload
A Salsa gravel bike bike battle! Well which bike is best? We are going to compare these two iconic gravel bikes side by side and see what the difference is between each. One is made from steel the other alloy. When it comes to price the Journeyman is the best budget option coming in at $1,100 cheape...
Canondale Topstone Alloy 1 or Salsa Vaya GRX 600?
They are bombproof, comfortable, can carry anything, and perform very well. The tradeoff with weight is well worth it. I have an older Salsa Vaya and love it. It's a perfect commuter/ city bike that I take for long rides on the weekends.
Good commuter bike that's fast-ish
I commuted on a Salsa Vaya with a 105 groupset and a power meter before I upgraded to custom bike and it definitely falls into that fast and playful commuter bike category; what's funny though is that I upgraded to a Pinion belt-drive bike since I often commute in rain and snow. The Pinion and belt drive is a little slower than my Vaya was, but the added functionality and weather resistance make up for it; I suppose it depends on what kind of weather you ride in and how much you like continuously cleaning your drivetrain in bad weather. I might also suggest the Salsa Warbird if you're looking for a fast attack commuter.
