« on: December 17, 2016, 01:09:06 pm »
Want to buy 2014 (blue) or 2015 (black) Salsa Fargo Titanium frame in Medium size.  I would prefer just a frame but if you have the whole bike will consider as well.  Please contact me through PM with details if you have one for sale.  Thanks! 

Yes.  No longer made.  These have been preserved in sealed bags.  I believe they were about $70 each when current if I remember correctly.  Excellent tires.

Gear Talk / Fork and Frame Choices
« on: October 11, 2011, 10:38:56 pm »

I am new to touring and setting up a steel 29er mountain frame.  I am interested in the effects of fork rake on stability and handling.  I currently am using a steel fork with a rake of 38mm.  The current fork is strong and comfortable and I have been happy with the handling of the bike unloaded.  But it has no braze ons for fenders or racks.  I was considering a Salsa Fargo fork with 50mm of rake as it has all the braze ons and fender mounts.  Although the top tube is longish and BB higher on my Fisher Ferrous, I did not think I would have to get a whole new frame (like the Fargo) for touring. Would I be better off with the current rake that I have or be ok with the Fargo fork?  I can get a new version of the fork I already have with full compliment of braze ons but would be pricier going this route. Right now I am not sure if I am going to do bike packing or fully loaded.  I believe I will be happier bike packing.  Any advice is appreciated.
