Vaya Travel is our ultimate travel and touring bike.
Based on our Vaya road touring model, all aspects of the Vaya Travel are designed to make traveling with a bike better. Whether you are flying to Scotland for a multi-week tour, or headed to San Francisco for a long weekend, or just want the ultimate touring machine, Vaya Travel is your essential traveling partner.
We've chosen stainless steel for its fine ride quality, but also because scuffs and scratches are easily buffed out. The paint-free finish is intentionally understated, hopefully making your bike a bit less attention getting when traveling.
Replaceable Salsa decals allow you to change up your style, replace damaged decals, or go stealth mode to attract less attention on the road.
The frame incorporates S&S couplers allowing you to split your frame, break your bike down, and travel more easily. The bike fits into a standard S&S hard or soft case, which should eliminate oversized airline fees.
Alternator dropouts add significant versatility to the Vaya Travel. Run fully geared, or consider a singlespeed setup for some of your trips. Singlespeeds are simple, and easier to breakdown, pack, and re-assemble. If you would happen to damage your drivetrain while off the beaten path, the Alternator's will also help you fashion a temporary fix to keep yourself moving.
Of course, front low rider and rear rack mounts allow you to run full or partial pannier setups as needed for the tour or adventure at hand.
