Salsa's Fargo 2 is their off-road adventure bike and it has developed a cult status as an off-road touring and bikepacking machine that'll fuel your passion for long, fun days in the saddle at home and in distant lands. This disc-brake, 29-inch wheel adventurer boasts Salsa's super-strong Kung Fu chromoly tubing with a sloped top tube for plenty of stand-over clearance for those fully-loaded starts and stops. And up front there's Salsa's Firestarter carbon fork for pinpoint control and vibration damping. Plus, a full host of braze-ons lets you add front and rear racks, fenders and 6, yes 6, bottles. You've got gobs of tire clearance, too: there's plenty of room for the Salsa/Stan's NoTubes wheels with their 29 x 2.2 Schwalbe treads. And, you'll love SRAM's crisp-shifting 20-speed drivetrain for even the most daunting of climbs, and Avid's disc brakes to keep it under control on the way down. Speaking of control, there's also the impressive Thudbuster suspension seatpost to soak up the bumps, a fine Salsa drop bar and a choice seat from WTB. Fargo. Go Far.
