ADVENTURE BY BIKE®
Fargo has long been one of our most popular bikes—our true, drop-bar, off-road adventure bike that’s developed a minor cult following. Here’s a crazy fact—at the Grand Departe of the 2013 Tour Divide, ten percent of the field was aboard a Fargo. It’s a fitting tribute, as the Tour Divide route was part of the Fargo’s original design inspiration, and also because Salsa sponsored rider Jay Petervary holds the Tour Divide record...a record he set on a Fargo Ti. It also speaks to the bike’s great versatility, whether tackling singletrack, doubletrack, gravel or pavement.
2015 Fargo Ti...
Since its introduction, the Fargo has seen several model updates…but for model year 2015 the frame does not change. Both the Titanium and Kung Fu CroMoly versions continue to use the versatile Alternator rear dropouts (also handy for creating a bailout gear when you are SOL and far from home) and the comfort enhancing, multiple hand position Woodchipper bars.
The Fargo Ti and most of our Fargo 2 models continue to use our Firestarter Carbon fork, while the Fargo 3 sticks with the Firestarter Steel fork. Both of these forks are equipped with our Three Pack bosses, allowing you to mount Anything Cages or waterbottle cages to your fork legs for expanded capacity.
2015 Fargo 2 Suspension...
But we’re excited to announce one new model spec: Fargo 2 Suspension.
The Fargo 2 Suspension features a RockShox Reba RL tapered steerer, thru-axle fork with 100mm of travel. This build really gets to the heart of the matter; the Fargo is a drop bar mountain bike, fully capable of taking on off-road singletrack. The Fargo 2 Suspension model will be available in Red Orange paint with an MSRP of $2499.

2015 Fargo 2 in Bomb Pop Blue...
We are also offering two color options of rigid Fargo 2; Gun Metal Gray or Bomb Pop Blue at MSRP $2299.
2015 Fargo 3 in Green Machine colorway...
2015 Fargo 3 in Mustard colorway...
And we are offering two colors of the rigid Fargo 3: Green Machine or Mustard at MSRP $1699.
Here at Salsa, the Fargo continues to hold a prominent place in our hearts. It’s the ‘jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none’ machine that winds up being the perfect choice for so much of the riding that we like to do. If you haven’t yet checked out a Fargo, we hope you will. It might just be the right bike for you too.

I have been passionate about bikes since I was old enough to skid the plastic tires on my Big Wheel. I purchased my first mountain bike when I was 13, and I never looked back. I have a healthy respect for all forms of cycling, but most of the time you will find me riding singletrack, often on my Fargo.
