sticking to my 1 new bike a year regime with the salsa fargo 2

should get me fit and take me to a few places.....longer rides and speedy rides is the main thing here.

saves wearing £200 sets of tires out on my fatbike :oops:

Registering interest with this.

Contemplating building one up from a frame/forks set.

I'm liking this very, very much. I love the idea of a 'do it all' bike, it's right up my alley, and the Salsa Fargo would be very high on my list of modern steeds to aquire :).

Love it, I built a CX bike for the purpose but I guess a Fargo would be much more versatile. Hate the pedals tho.

First ride today 8)

Took me a few miles to work out the gears and remember my brakes are not always where my hands are!

Anyways, decided to get away from all this snow and head up the coast, 3c and wet but no snow.......30miles to learn the bike.

So far so good.
