I'm pleased to see this switch to this set up. It mirrors what I use on my personal Fargo, and I love how it all works. The simple double up front with a wide range cassette in back easily covers all of the terrain I ride, and it functions very well. Blue is the highlight color on this year's ti bike. It's seen here in the blue brake rotors, skewers, nipples and XO trim.
This year's ti bike makes the switch to a 44mm headtube just like the steel models. The bike comes standard with an external cup lower. This means you can pick up a superlight Whisky carbon fork, or a tapered steertube suspension fork and drop it right in.
Another big upgrade this year is in the hubs. This year's bike comes stock with DT's excellent 350 star ratchet hubs. These are a huge step upwards compared to last year's Shimano XT's. These are lighter, they roll much better, and they are far more durable. They cost more, which is part of this bike's increased price. In my mind it's easily worth the difference. This bike is ready to go right from day one!
It's another great year for this gorgeous bike. Salsa's spec has made the already great bike bike even better. Stop in today to check these out, or give us a call if we can answer any questions about these for you. We're looking forward to hearing stories about where these bikes will take people!
