Description

Grab a buddy, Salsa's Powderkeg is ready to explode with adventure. This 29er tandem mountain bike has massive chromoly tubing and a super stout fork for precise tracking and real off-road chops. Combine your powers with the gear range of a full Shimano SLX drivetrain for incredible speed and smooth shifts. Quick-spinning Stan's Flow rims with Schwalbe tires guide you along for miles, while Avid's BB7 mechanical disc brakes with large 200mm rotors provide plenty of two-person stopping power. Don't ever slow your dreams for adventure, though, because with WTB saddles, Salsa bars and grips, a Zoom stem and seatpost, compatibility for racks, and room for nine (yes, nine!) water bottles, Salsa's Powderkeg is primed to roll at the slightest provocation.
