  • It's designed with all the amenities and durability needed to cycle the globe
  • Salsa's Pete Koski, engineer for Marrakesh, says, "-A true touring bike should have a lower bottom bracket and longer chainstay/wheelbase than a similar sized road, gravel, commuting, or mountain bike
  • Marrakesh fits a disc rotor size up to 180mm for plenty of stopping power when riding big mountain passes fully loaded
  • 2016 Salsa Marrakesh Drop Bar Alaska to Chile, anyone? Portland Oregon to Portland Maine? Marrakesh is Salsa's new heavy-duty world-touring bike
  • The lower BB also lowers your saddle (without affecting saddle-to-pedal distance), and therefore lowers your body relative to the axles
  • For a traditional front pannier set up though, it also includes low rider bosses
  • Fender clearance: there's room for fenders with the 700c x 40mm Schwalbes that come with the bike, but that's about as wide as you can go
  • In the unlikely event that anything will happen to damage a fine steel frame like Marrakesh, finding someone that can weld it back to a rideable state, even in distant lands, is much more likely than finding someone that can weld titanium or aluminium, or repair a composite frame." Marrakesh comes stock with a dedicated Salsa Alternator 135 Low Deck Rack
  • The frame also features three water bottle mounts, and the fork includes Three-Pack mounts for Anything Cages or additional water bottles should you choose to use them
  • Without fenders, you can go up to 29 x 2.0" tires
  • Koski adds, "-Steel is tough and has a very long life span
  • Marrakesh also includes a spare spoke mount and a kickstand plate because as Koski says, "-Kickstands are highly functional and cool when touring, despite what roadies and MTB'ers might have you think." A great asset to have on a touring bike is a dynamo system that not only powers your lights but can also help keep your smart devices and external battery pack charged
  • Marrakesh is a world-touring bike, designed for fully loaded, rugged exploration
  • This all results in a centre of gravity that makes riding and steering a loaded bike easier and more predictable." Constructed with the next-generation, Salsa-designed Cobra Kai CroMoly tubing, the externally and internally butted tubeset is engineered to provide an impressively strong frame
  • Hit us up to discuss
  • We specialize in configuring complete dynamo systems using the best components
  • Intentionally designed whether riding drop or flat bar, Marrakesh's unique geometries that employ Chromoly steel and Cobra Kai tubing make for a durable and predictable ride even when heavily loaded
  • It comes with the excellent BB7 mechanical disc brakes with 160 mm rotors
  • Comes with Salsa Low-Deck Rear Alternator Rack, capable of safely carrying 60 lbs.
