actually, according to their website, they still make 3; all fatbikes.

Salsa is seriously into chasing whatever they think the current fads are; almost the exact opposite what what Salsa used to be under Ross Shafer (before it got bought by QBP).

Overall dimensions of a fat bike is the same as a 29er. You could also say that some of their bikes are 700c. Also not a 29er. Or, Wait...

*outer* tire diameter might be similar to a tire on another size rim (depending greatly on the particular tires being used), but as long as they're using a 559 rim, the fatbikes listed are not "29'ers".

How do you like the bars. I think they are the " Woodchipper "
I've been thinking of buying a set and just wonder how they feel?

Thanks

Yes the woodchipper. They are fine. I don't ever use the bottoms of this style handlebar so I'm no specialist...
here is my other Fargo. I'm going to keep one and sell one. Decisions, Decisions...

PsIII: Maybe you can use something like this so your Barcon's don't ding the top tube.

PS: its on the top front gear because i had just put the bike together and it wasn't tuned up yet so this was the only position it wouldn't skip around. but thanks

PSII: Thanks

PSIII: The shifters hit the top tube. Not sure this would work for this set up...

As long as you know, I just see my share of bikes damage (some permanent) from such a silly mistake

A patch of leather, held on by some simple hemp twine, would look good. Same thing for the down tube if the bike will get parked at those bike racks where you throw the front over the top of the rail.
