Salsa Journeyman Sora Flat Bar Carbon Fork
Journeyman with a flat bar, Sora group, carbon fork and 700 x 38 version if you plan on more pavement and occasional dirt. I think the price delta between Claris/aluminum fork and Sora/carbon fork is worth it! These were $1199 originally - this is the last one at the $949 price as we will not be able to buy at the reduced price again.
As of July 9th 9:39 AM, this bike is on hold.
Journeyman Flat Bar Sora 700 comes equipped with the tried-and-true Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs. The flat handlebar adds leverage and stability for rugged roads and the 700c x 38mm tires offer low rolling resistance to get you where you’re going quickly and efficiently.
