Description

Chosen to lead the 1847 British expedition across the Arctic, the Salsa Mukluk led a crew of 41 men, 16 dogs, three Koala bears, and a leprechaun. Built from 7005 Series aluminum, the Mukluk withstood brutally cold temps and several dog bites. When the expedition crept into the depths of winter, the uber-beefy 3.8in wide Surly Larry & Endomorph tires guided the team across the windswept, snow-covered landscape. However, problems began to rise when the leprechaun stole the last of five bottles mounted on the Mukluk. Tired of drinking seawater and urine, the Koalas incited a riot, and the results were nothing short of disaster. During the confusion, the leprechaun jumped aboard the mostly forgotten Mukluk, gave the SRAM X.7 GripShift a twist, and dropped the hammer (a.k.a. his little leprechaun legs) on the Truvativ Hussefelt crankset. After a few miles, the leprechaun gave the Avid BB5 mechanicals a squeeze and came to a screeching halt. The leprechaun jumped down from the mighty Mukluk, and sat down on the snow. Little did the leprechaun know that the Koalas had a friend -- Big Daddy Polar Bear. Just as things were looking up, the leprechaun was snatched up and quickly torn to shreds by Big Daddy Polar Bear. The Mukluk carried on, mapping the entire Arctic and returning to Britain a hero. The end.

  • KMC Z99 Zinc-Coated RustBuster chain eliminates corrosion when you're traversing the Arctic

  • Surly Rolling Darryl wheels float over just about anything soft, and provide enough confidence that you might just ask out the only girl on the continent without fear of rejection
  • Perfectly designed gear ratios mean you can climb telephone poles with ease

I've read that there were some chain rub issues with the Mukluk. I noticed that a number of other 2011 Mukluks I've found online used a triple up front, while this one uses a double w/bash.
Can any owners or, perhaps, Hucknroll employees shine some light on this for me?

Fact or fiction?

Friends,

I am 5'8" What frame size do you recommend I have ridden a 16" Pugsley and it was the right size. Also, I plan to ride this on the beach, what special care do I need to take concerning salt and sand.

Thanks,

John B

I live in Canada (and really want to buy the salsa 3 mukluk bike). Since the 'bill me later' option only applies to Americans, is there any other way I could pay for this bike in installments? I can pay the $250 right now, but would require approx. 1-2 months to pay the whole amount of $1,599 (again, in installments). Thank you very much,

Holy bosses, batman! What are all of those...

Holy bosses, batman! What are all of those wacky water bottle bosses for? I count three bolts on the upper downtube(???), two underneath (bottle, pump), two on the seattube (bottle), and then four in an insanely odd pattern on the fork legs(???). Special rack system? What does it all MEAN, man? :)

Best Answer Responded on

Write your answer here...There are many options for bottle placements but also accessory rack placements. On the fork legs you can mount a special rack from salsa that allows you to carry insulated water bottles, or any other oversized cargo. I have seen Tent bags, Stanley thermoses, and the like mounted on the back of the fork legs. You can also mount conventional water bottle mounts behind the forks, as may people will mount a tangle bag in the main triangle or a custom bag that takes up the entire front triange. See Gnatlikes.com website and scroll through the last ten posts or so and you will see what I am writing about.

Can I put a larger chainring on this bike?...

Can I put a larger chainring on this bike? I never use the granny gear, so really all I need are the 48 and 36.

Responded on

the only thing preventing a larger chainring is the chainstay's clearance. There's a pic of the front derailleur and it looks to me like you could put a gear on in place of the bashguard and have room for something bigger than a 36. possibly not a 48...can't tell with confidence.
