Fargo is Salsa's original drop bar mountain bike. A bit of a cult classic, it’s designed for mixed surface riders and bikepackers who want the versatility to take any route and the capability to carry everything needed when they’re out for days on end. That’s why Fargo has a triple-butted Cobra Kai steel frame that is as forgiving as it is reliable on weeks-long expeditions. Its carbon Firestarter fork pairs nicely with the frame and offers bosses and mount points for anything you’d want to attach to a bicycle fork. The Fargo Apex 1 is built up with SRAM’s trustworthy 1x11-speed Apex drivetrain with the range to get you and your gear anywhere and the simplicity to purify your riding experience. That’s paired up with hydraulic Apex brakes that won’t shy away from any descent, so you needn’t, either. You're welcome to roll over nearly anything, thanks to the 29 x 2.6-inch Maxxis Ikons that deliver low rolling resistance, traction-on-demand, and a smooth ride. And, wide-angle Salsa Woodchipper bars offer the hand positions of a drop bar with the wide stance control of a mountain bar so you can keep fresh hauling yourself and your gear all day long and still get rad when conditions call for it.
