Salsa Fargo Apex
Bikepacking/Gravel Adventure Touring Bike (+/- $2,000)
Specifications, Geometry, and everything you need to know

Salsa attacks frontally the bikepacking market with its 2020 version of the classic Fargo. Far from the traditional geometries that characterized the Salsa Fargo in the past, the Fargo 2020 meets all the recent market trends for off-road touring: wide tyres (up to 2.2″), small chainrings (36/26t) and big grannies in the back (10 speed 11-34), an aggressive geometry, and a carbon fork.

The new Salsa Fargo gives the rider a well-balanced mix of rollover, traction, and bump absorption. The Firestarter 110 carbon fork, has a dual set of Three-Pack mounts on each fork leg, low rider rack mounts, and internal dynamo hub wire routing.

An amazing off-road adventure machine – great for extreme bikepacking trips
