It's A Sickness, I Tell Ya...
I think everyone has figured out, by now, that I really like my fat bike. But, I just can't get comfortable with the thought of using the long Fat Sand Bike frame on tight singletrack, with the switchback turns that the trails around here commonly feature. And, while I really like commuting on the big tires, I want to do some epic-ish off-road rides on the fat bike.
Tree Fort Bikes, who had last year's Salsa Mukluk framesets on clearance. After hemming and hawing for a while, I bit the bullet and ordered the frameset. It arrived, today.
I think it's pretty, even though it isn't orange.
I had planned on swapping parts from the FSB to the Salsa but, apparently, the Salsa frame is not compatible with internally-geared hubs. So, I have to get, at least, a new wheel, cogset, derailleur and shifter.
Things are never as simple as they seem, at first.
