Fargo, Go Far. Ti.

Ok, So I started seriously thinking about buying the Trek Sawyer.  But then got to thinking that my bike stable is getting a little outta hand.  And really the Sawyer wasn’t filling any bike needs that I didn’t already have a bike for.  So this got me thinking. Why am I again spending money on a bike that isn’t exactly what I want.

And so what is it that I want exactly? I want a 29er that can tour on and off road. I want it in titanium.  (After getting a Moots, ti is saweeet)  I want a hardtail.  I no longer want to tour with big heavy racks and big panniers.

The answer came to me.  I’ve always admired Salsa bikes.  The Fargo was always an interesting bike.  Now they have created a Ti version of the Fargo with updated geometry.

“OMG!” I thought. That’s it.  Ti adventure touring bike.  After touring down south on the LHT, I realized that panniers just let you pack too much.  I’m all for bike packing.  Light as possible, minimum.  And if I need to tour with lots of stuff, I have the Big Dummy.

So, this is the plan. Sell the LHT with racks, panniers, and all.  Sell the Beasely 650B SS. Work some overtime.  Order me up a Ti Fargo frameset.  Start building a Ti 29er adventure bike from the ground up!

Ti Fargo

Just sick

Hey I like hot sauce. So Salsa is fitting isn't it?
