Ever since it was announced April 10, 2014, I’ve been committed to making this my next mountain bike.
When the 2014 SaddleDrive event came around and Salsa started taking orders, I stepped up and told my local shop I was ready to order one. Unfortunately, my shop didn’t get its Salsa order ready for a little bit after that, so I couldn’t get a complete Bucksaw 2 (in yellow!) like I wanted. All that was left in my size on the preorder were some Bucksaw 1 frames. So that’s what I committed to. I hadn’t planned on building a complete bike, but I was roped into it so I started ordering parts.
