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?
