2017 Marrakesh Flatbar Deore world-touring bike. Size XL (62cm) triple-butted chromoly frame and fork. Flatbar specific geometry. Less than 500 neighborhood cruising miles on it and lots of upgrades, though it does have some minor heel rub on the chain stays.
The Marrakesh is Salsa's world-touring bike, designed for fully loaded, rugged exploration. It also could be the ultimate cruising machine, an overachieving commuter or very capable gravel grinder. Triple-butted chromoly frame and fork. Tons of braze-ons and lots of tire clearance. The Alternator dropout delivers incredible drivetrain versatility. Run singlespeed or geared, QR or thru-axle, freehub or Rohloff. Set the Alternator dropouts all the way forward for a shorter wheelbase that results in quick and nimble handling, or set back for more stability. Lots of upgrades.

• 700c x 40mm tire clearance with mud guards
• 29 x 2.0" tires without.

Wheels:
• Wtb i19 tubeless ready wheels with Deore hubs
• Panaracer Pasela tires
Cockpit
• Zoom seatpost
• Surly Moloko bars (leverage and control benefits of the flat bar with more hand positions than drop bars plus it has lots of room for accessories)
• Brooks microfiber bar tape padded with strips of rubber tubing at all the contact areas.
• Ergon cork grips.
• Chromag pedals
• Mirrycle mirror
• kickstand
• Brooks B190 with Brooks all-weather cover

Original specs available at https://www.salsacycles.com/bikes/marrakesh_flatbar_deore.

The new ones go for over $2k with a mix of Alivio/Acera kit and no Brooks. They also no longer offer the flatbar geometry.
Asking $1995 or best reasonable offer.

Open to full/partial trades for steel-framed bikes of similar value.

I can make this available in Grand Blanc or Taylor with sufficient notice.

Will ship at buyer’s expense (probably around $250 via Bike Flights) but I’d prefer to sell locally.
