Gear Talk / Re: Salsa Fargo - Lemon of the year!

There can be more than one right answer in any situation.

I own both the the SalsaFargo and the LHT. I use them both for loaded - fully loaded touring. Respectfully, I don't buy the idea that only custom built touring bikes are sturdy enough for touring.  The net is full of accounts of men that have went on long distance tours on super cheapo $400.00 bikes....and had fun! 

I'm up front and 100% honest  - I've not ever had the Fargo shimmy or wobble on me. I have had the LHT shimmy, I also have a Fuji that will shimmy as well. It's not fun.  The half dozen times the LHT has shimmied it was becuase I loaded the bike incorrectly.
My last tour on the Fargo was Vancouver BC to Alberta.  Fully loaded, the Fargo is the most comfortable touring bike of the four I now own. If we were neighbors I'd let you ride mine - so you could see that Your answer does not fit every equation.
