Salsa Fargo Titanium Mountain Bike - Large
with Niner Carbon rigid forks

House move force VERY reluctant sale of this amazing bike.

I never thought that I would sell this bike ... it is simply fantastic and I am sure that I will regret it ... but needs must.

The Salsa Fargo is the original dropped bar, adventure bike ... perfect for general MTB duties or long haul expeditions. This is the top of the range titanium version built by legendary frame builders Lynskey. It is a size large, for reference I am a whisker under 6 foot and it is a very good fit for me. It has the Niner carbon fork undoubtedly, the best carbon fork currently available.

I am the original owner, I bought it in late 2012 and apart from the cranks that I already had everything was purchased brand new. All in all the build cost was over £3,500 ... the frame on its own cost £1,650. The bike and all of the component are, as you can hopefully see from the photographs, in extremely good condition. The bike has mainly been used as a commuter and for the occasional long distance ride ... it has been lovingly maintained and serviced regularly ... everything is in perfect working order.

The only thing to point out is the side walls on the tyres are a little worn and the rear tyre has small rip that has been repaired but they've plenty of tread left.

The full build sec is as follows -

- Salsa Fargo Titanium Frame
- Niner Carbon Forks
- 3T Carbon Cyclocross Bars
- SRAM Force Gear/Brake Levers
- Cane Creek Crosstop Inline Brake Levers
- Chris King Head Set
- Chris King Bottom Bracket
- Thomson Road Stem
- Thomson Seat Post
- Fizik Gobi Saddle
- Shimano XTR 970 Cranks (Hand polished ... you won't see many of these around)
- Renthal 34T Chainring
- Paul Components chain keeper
- SRAM Rival 10 spd Rear mech
- ZTR Crest 29ers rims on Hope Pro hubs

I've also re-taped the bars with brand new grip that has never been used.

I'm looking for £1,950 posted
