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.
The Babboe Curve Mountain is based on the best-selling three wheeled "bakfiets" Curve but on steroids. Combining the awesome Yamaha 250w mid-drive electric assist motor and the step less Nuvinci 330 gear hub you can get up to speed no matter how much weight you are carrying and then stop on a dime with the powerful hydraulic disc brakes. The Curve is renowned in Holland for its sure-footed stability and comfortable ride and with the addition of the extra drive from the brilliant Yamaha motor moving cargo has never been easier. The cargo bin capacity is a whopping 100kg and comfortably sits four little ones and all that they travel with, so you can do a school and grocery run with ease! The frame itself can accommodate 100kg riders between the heights of 5’, 4” and 6’, 4” with a quick adjustment of the saddle height and even the handlebar adjusts so you get the perfect fit. The rest of the spec does not disappoint with a frame manufactured from tough galvanized Hi-Ten steel that has a chip-resistant powder-coated finish and a marine-grade curved beech plywood box with a battery compartment under the bench tucked away from curious hands. The Babboe Curve is designed for perpetual outdoor storage and is a true four-season workhorse.
Coming Soon. Call for timeline, or secure your new cargo bike with a deposit. The EP8 Bullitt takes the "acoustic" Bullit and gives you way, way more capability, whether that's longer rides or bigger hills. Bullitt's are legendary bikes and their light frame and high performance parts are the choice of bike messengers, weekend warriors and bike commuters across the world. If you want the best - and the most proven - this is it. Bullitts are designed for performance and this bike amplifies that performance seriously. Take one look at the drivetrain. The massive 11-42 XT 12-speed cassette provides a massive 418% gear range (and is a much lighter option than the internal gear hub options available). But the big news is Shimano's EP8 motor. It has a massive 85nm of torque (similiar to a small car!), 500W of peak power, and a huge 500W battery can push up to 180km on a single charge. Want a bike that reads your mind? While the motor constantly tunes torque and power to your needs, the electric shifting automatically finds your gear when you need it (there's a manual option too). Acceleration, hills, cornering, speed... load it up with cargo and punch a hole in gridlock. This bike is ready to make a massive difference in your life. Anybody who has ridden a Bullitt knows the feeling. Whereas most cargo bikes are heavy, sluggish and tend to 'bow' in corners, the Bullitt is light, fast and ultra-stiff. What you give it, it gives back. This performance is only advanced by a performance geometry that maximizes pedal-transfer and steering performance. It's a highly responsive machine... it reads your mind. This is even more the case with the EP8 motor constantly tuning power to your torque, cadence and wheel RPM. Add the automatic electric shifting (there's a manual option too), and this is pure mind-bike connection.
