I ride the Salsa Fargo. It’s a bit of an unusual bike- It has a 29er wheel set on a road bike frame. It’s designed for touring on places where there are no roads.
You updated it recently with some new bars I heard? Yeah I put on drop bars with bar end shifters. It cut a solid 10 minutes off my commute.
What do you like about your Salsa? Probably the best part about it is its versatility. I mean I ride it every day about 15 miles for my commute and this past weekend I went mountain biking with it.
Looks like you could fit really fat tires on it. Yeah I have 2.1s on it now but they definitely could be bigger. Actually in the front I have the enabler fork that is spaced at 135mm to fit in a rear wheel with a gigantic fat bike tire.
Now most people here at the shop ride skinny tire bikes, how come you ride a bike with relatively fat tires on your commute? It’s way more comfortable!
