Fargo is our original drop bar mountain bike. A bit of a cult classic, Fargo, it is designed for the rider that likes long days on smooth to rugged surfaces, while carrying everything needed to do it all again tomorrow. The comfort and real estate of a drop bar, singletrack capable geometry, and comfortable Cobra Kai tubing provide a ride that’s always able to fulfill the most imaginative endeavor. For 2017, Fargo has been updated with shorter chainstays and a split-able Alternator V. 1.5 dropouts for belt drive compatibility. New front end geometry to accommodate a 51mm offset fork, and clearance for 27.5+, 29”, or 29+ wheels and tires, eliminate any guesswork about just where into the wild unknown you and Fargo could go.
