Description |

Fargo Apex 1 is Salsa's drop-bar off-road touring bike that knows no limits. A triple-butted steel frame, carbon fork, and massive tire clearance smooth things over when you find yourself on washboard or rooty singletrack. Alternator 1.5 dropouts let you experiment with drivetrain options (or single-speed your way home if needed), and a mind-boggling number of cargo mounts allows endless rack, bag, and bottle setups. SRAM’s Apex 1 x 11 drivetrain is a reliable workhorse with the gear range for speedy adventures or hilly slogs. Fargo: load it up and get lost.

Triple Butted Cromoly Tubeset
Salsa-designed, triple-butted, and frame size-specific seamless CroMoly tubing

Firestarter 110 Fork
Light, tough, and ultra-versatile, the Firestarter is Salsa's carbon fork for all-terrain riding. Two sets of Three-Pack mounts on each fork leg give you room for extra water or Anything Cages, and mid-blade mounts accommodate low rider racks. Firestarter fits a wide range of tire sizes, from 27.5 x 2.8–3.0" to 29 x 2.2–3.0"

Fargo Geometry
Designed as a drop bar mountain bike, optimized for fit with the Salsa Woodchipper or Cowchipper handlebars. Capable of handling everything from technical singletrack trails, two-track, gravel, and the occasional paved road. Predictable handling with or without a load. The bike to ride for multiple-surface excursions.

Alternator Dropouts V1.5
Split-able version of Salsa's renowned Alternator Dropout for ultimate drivetrain versatility. Run singlespeed or geared, QR or thru-axle, freehub or Rohloff, or Gates Belt Drive. Set Alternator Dropouts all the way forward for a shorter wheelbase that results in quick and nimble handling or set back for more stability.

Belt Drive Compatible
Tested and certified for belt drive use.

29 x 2.2" Wheel/Tire Spec
This wheel and tire size rolls fast, keeps weight down and offers excellent maneuverability.

Multiple Wheelsize Versatility
Fargo geometry and spacing can accommodate 275+, 29:, and, on sizes small to x-large, 29+ making for a highly capable bike that’s ready for just about any endeavor
