Description

If adventure is a creative endeavor, the Salsa Fargo is your muse. With a blend of touring comfort and off-road capability, Fargo lives outside the lines of categorization and urges you to take the scenic route and have fun along the way. On this Fargo Rival 1, you get traction-dripping 3-inch WTB tires on 50mm Sun Ringle Duroc rims, along with the ability to change to either 29er or 29+ as your needs change. The SRAM 1x11 drivetrain pairs a Rival rear derailleur with Apex shifter to provide ample gearing for loaded backcountry trips, while a pair of Apex hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding control and ruthless power, especially when you're in the flared drops of the Salsa Woodchipper handlebar. A rugged and smooth-cruising chromoly frame is eager to explore all types of surfaces, and the burly Firestarter carbon fork is strong, stable, and lightweight, slicing deftly through corners even with gear attached to the 3-pack mounts on its legs. Upholding the Fargo's touring cred is an abundance of mounting points everywhere, so you can pack as you please. In addition to the fork’s three-pack mounts, attachment points can be found for front and rear racks and fenders, along with three sets of bottle cage mounts on the front triangle. Adventure awaits, and the Fargo is ready to go far.
