Product Details

2016 Salsa Pony Rustler GX 2 x 10

The “big” little brother of Salsa's 29er Horsethief, Pony Rustler features the same “any singletrack trail in the world” capability, but takes a more aggressive approach with the ground-clawing, inspirational stability of 27.5 x 3.0" tires. Mix this footprint with 148 x 12mm axle spacing, short and agile chainstays, and BOOST crankset specifications, and you’re dressed to impress while you bust new moves on the high mountain dance floor.

    Best Uses


      Bikes seemed to be designed around ultra thin people. I'm heavy for a cyclist at around 200 lbs. The consequence is that little 2.3 inch tire don't grip enough for me. The 3.0 inch tires on this have plenty of grip and are compliant around small rocks and roots. On most dirt surfaces they roll better than 29er wheels and I am faster on this bike than I am on the 29er Horsetheif. Because plus bikes are new there are something that you need to be aware of. First, it comes with the light version of the brigder 3.0. I would replace them with the tough version. The stiffer sidewalls eliminate any vagueness the bike has. Second, you need to know you tire pressure with .25 psi precision. A change that small can be felt, A .5 psi drop could start the bike bobbing, get a low pressure tire gauge. Third, you need to set tire pressure before you do suspension setup. Get the pressure as low as possible but not so low that the bike is bobbing with suspension locked out. Then set up suspension. I found I went with a slightly higher suspension pressure and had to adjust the damping quite a bit to get suspension working correctly. The plus tires interact with the suspension, when setup well you can damp-out all the bad behavior people complain about. If not, the bike will bob and squirm like a prize fighter.
