    I've narrowed it down to 'earth'. Or 'Baltimore'.
    That is a sexy, sexy Soma

    Agreed... Although theres a fair bit of sexyness to a MTB Frame converted to road use as well...

    Thanks... can't beat the value of a Soma. That mixed with the 105 and Bontrager bits creates the perfect big guy/all day road bike.

    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...

    <sigh>

    *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...

    Ps: you are going to blow your rear derailleur/hanger if you keep running on the biggest cog and the biggest ring, besides is pretty useless gear and repeated already..

    PsII: I love the color of your Fargo specially on the second picture with all the snow..

    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 :huh

    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
    Sure it will, I just a thick piece of leather but you can use many other materials, cheap insurance again..
