Blackborow is Salsa’s "dream big" cargo fat bike, best paired with an unlimited imagination. The extended wheelbase and rear stays offer huge carrying capacity via abundant frame and fork braze-ons, supporting room for four full-sized panniers on the beautifully engineered rear rack. Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066-T6 aluminum tubing is used throughout the frame. Additionally, the tubing is strategically shaped and formed for additional stiffness and strength optimization in key stress areas. The front end is compatible with all our rigid fat bike forks and also fat-specific suspension forks. When Blackborow is sensibly loaded, the bike still feels well balanced and is a pleasure to ride on winding trails compared to other long-tail cargo bikes. Featuring carbon construction with an aluminum steerer, the Kingpin Fork is lightweight and durable, and features an amazing array of accessory bosses to maximize its capabilities: dual sets of Three-Pack bosses on each leg accept bottle cages or our Anything Cage accessories, lowrider mounts work with our Down Under front rack for a traditional touring setup, and internal dynamo hub wire routing keeps the front end clean for those upgrading to dyno hubs. Blackborow is compatible with 26 x 3.8–4.33" tires on up to 100mm rim, 27.5 x 3.25–4.0", or 29 x 2.3–3.0". The ability to run multiple wheel and tire sizes allows you to customize the experience and fine-tune the ride height as needed. A removable direct-mount front derailleur bracket allows for a clean 1x build, but it’s also compatible with 2x drivetrain setups. Plus, it’s got internal routing for a dropper post. Blackborow is all about new possibilities, and owners will find themselves able to merge an array of other interests into their two-wheeled adventures. Salsa's Blackborow GX includes an array of high-quality components to support the remotest excursions. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain features strong and lightweight components as well as a wide-range 12-speed cassette for tackling quickly varying terrain. A set of SUN Ringle Mulefut rims have a plenty-wide 80mm footing, perfect for floating the 45NRTH Dillinger 27.5 x 3.8" tires. A suite of tried-and-true Salsa cockpit components and a WTB Volt saddle round out the build.
