Salsa Fargo X9



Product Details

2016 Salsa Fargo X9

The Divide Trail is calling, and you can answer with Salsa's Fargo 2. Salsa's super-strong Kung Fu chromoly frame features a sloped top tube for plenty of stand-over clearance, all-day touring geometry to keep you in the saddle as long as you please, and a full host of braze-ons for front and rear racks, fenders and 5—yes, 5—bottles. This rig is primed to head off the pavement and into the woods, with grippy 29 x 2.25-inch Schwalbe tires mounted on world-touring-capable Salsa/Stan's NoTubes wheels. The 2 x 10-speed SRAM drivetrain powers up even the most daunting climbs and ensures you have the range to get you and your gear to the next campsite, while SRAM's BB7 disc brakes offer smooth control, even when you're fully loaded or in foul weather. Salsa's own stem and Woodchipper drop handlebars, a Thomson Elite seatpost, as well as a sleek, supportive WTB saddle, keep you covering the terrain in comfort and control.
