Details

Fargo Apex 1 is Salsa's drop-bar off-road touring bike built to shatter limits. Ride it on singletrack, gravel, or other places where you wouldn't take your standard touring bike. A triple-butted steel frame and huge tire clearance provide cushion on rugged roads. Alternator dropouts allow for any drivetrain you can imagine, and cargo mounts let you carry enough to go days between resupplies. SRAM's Apex 1 drivetrain is a reliable workhorse with the range for many adventures.

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

- Firestarter 110 Fork
Light, tough, and ultra-versatile, this is our 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
A split-able version of our 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. See our Alternator Page for more info

- 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 27.5+, 29", and, on sizes small to x-large, 29+ making for a highly capable bike that's ready for just about any endeavor

- Rear Rack Friendly
Designed for use with the Salsa Alternator Plus Rack 135/142/148
