Start with the supple ride of Salsa's double-butted CroMoly frame set, add in some all-day frame geometry, generous tire clearance, and a set of drop handlebars; you get the Salsa Vaya. The Vaya is purpose-built for long days in the saddle across a variety of surfaces. It's got all the trappings of a touring bike, and handles a heavy load while maintaining a lively ride with ample road feel to make it a joy to ride daily. The stock Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour tires are renowned for their durability and puncture-resistance, and the Shimano 105 drivetrain gives you dependability and performance you can count on. Add in a set of Avid BB7S mechanical disc brakes, and you have an all-weather, all-road bike that will be a trusty companion for years of riding enjoyment. To top it off, Salsa made the Vaya Travel frame with S&S Stainless Steel couplers, which make traveling with your bike a breeze. The couplers allow you to pack the bike into a checked-baggage-sized case - eliminating the headaches of trying to check in a full-size bike box at the airport.
