Cobra Kai CroMoly Tubeset
Salsas next-generation, Salsa-designed, externally and internally butted 4130 tubeset, engineered from the ground up, provides a strong frame at an impressively low weight. Specifically designed for and found on select Salsa frames.
The Alternator dropout delivers incredible drivetrain versatility. Run singlespeed or geared, QR or thru-axle, freehub or Rohloff. Set the Alternator dropouts all the way forward for a shorter wheelbase that results in quick and nimble handling, or set back for more stability the power is yours.
Salsa Marrakesh Fork Included
Steel, straight 1-1/8" steerer, with stainless double eyelet dropouts, low-rider rack bosses and Three-Pack bosses.
Generous Tyre Capacity
Marrakesh is designed around a 700c/29 (622 ISO) disc brake wheel and is compatible with 700c x 40mm tyres with mudguards or up to 29 x 2.0" tyres without. Max. disc rotor size is 180mm.
Marrakesh features a low bottom bracket for stability and standover, an adjustable chainstay length to tune wheelbase and turning characteristic. The front end is designed with 62mm of mechanical trail (66mm ground trail) resulting in a stable feel that still allows easy turn initiation when loaded.
Drop Bar-Specific Sizing
Marrakesh Drop Bar comes in six sizes designed around drop bar setup and features a more upright and relaxed riding position on the tops or hoods for all-day comfort over varied road surfaces. The drop bar adds a third, more aerodynamic position for battling the wind. If flat bars are more your thing, check out the Marrakesh Flat Bar, which features an identical fit and hand position as the Marrakesh Drop Bar, but gets there using a flat handlebar.
Versatile Cable Routing
The frame features housing guides and stops to account for everything; 1x, 2x, 3x, and Rohloff, along with full-length rear brake hose/housing.
Downtube Shifter Compatible
Shifter bosses on the downtube allow the Marrakesh to be set up with indexed or friction shift levers directly, or adapted with housing stops to allow use of bar-end, trigger, or integrated brake/shift road levers on the bars. This versatility increases the odds of cobbling together a shifting drivetrain anywhere you might need to when the adventure really begins.
Multiple Bottle Cages
All frame sizes accept three bottle cages. Three-Pack mounts on the fork legs increase capacity to five bottles per frameset.
All framesets ship with Alternator swing plates that feature mudguard mount bosses and the front fork dropouts feature double eyelets.
Spare Spoke Mount
Located on the top of the left chainstay.
Because kickstands are highly functional and cool when touring, despite what roadies and mtbers might have you think.
Multiple Cargo Loading Options
All frames feature rear rack mounting via seatstay bosses up high and the upper pivot bolt of the Alternator dropout down low. Salsas Alternator 135 Low Deck rack is specifically designed to integrate seamlessly with the Marrakesh frame and keep the load as low and close to center as possible. Other racks can be fitted with the use of the Alternator Rack Hardware Kit or P-clamps. The Marrakesh fork comes loaded with both Three-Pack bosses and low rider bosses. This allows the use of either Anything Cages or low-rider racks if panniers are desired. Or consider the use of a frame bag within the front triangle.
The modern standard for steel frames, this headtube increases front-end strength and stiffness, and allows for the use of forks with either straight or tapered steerer tubes.
