It's here. It's ridiculous. It's awesome. We went there.

Oh yeah, and it's red.

Salsa Carbon Bucksaw w/ Shimano XTR Di2

 

Exclusively at GBS

We got our shipment of Carbon Bucksaws from Salsa, and got to thinking... Their stock build is sweet, but we have this Shimano XTR M9050 Di2 kit, a set of the slickest fatbike-compatible carbon cranks from RaceFace, and some sexy green bits... Clearly these parts ought to go on the first production full-suspension carbon fatbike.

And thus, the beast was born. With the full compliment of XTR goodies, carbon Salsa handlebar, dropper post, and Whisky Carbon fat wheels... This baby isn't just beautiful, nor is it simply silly... It's built to ride. Day in and day out. Take it out in the backcountry for days on end, go kill it with mad traction on your before or after work rides. Or simply make all your friends insanely jealous of the raddest fatty ever to grace the trails. Oh yeah, and it only weighs 28 pounds.

She told us to build it right.

And so we did.

Salsa Mukluk Ti - Custom Built

With Industry Nine, HED Big Deal (they're kind of a big deal), color-matched carbon fork. This thing is slick, and ready to tackle all the snow.

 

We're excited to build a bike to suit your needs.

We were approached by a customer to build her a titanium fatbike, make it sweet, make it light, and to top it all off: make it look damn good.

Titanium offers an unreal ride quality, light, long-lasting, and smoother than fresh-churned butter. Salsa has really stepped up the titanium game for 2015 and on, bringing a fresh new aesthetic appeal to their lineup of ti bikes and frames, with beautiful welds, custom-drawn tubing, sliding thru-axle dropouts, and rack mounts throughout. The Mukluk Ti is a terrific addition to their already stellar fatbike lineup, bringing the go-anywhere, bikepacking-inspired design of the Mukluk to the crowd seeking lighter, stronger, and smoother riding fatbikes.

 

So... What'd we bolt up to this puppy?
