Description

If you see a video camera –pause, turn right, and then continue on your way.

Fatbikes are part of a mythical group of woodland creatures –you see tracks, and you may even spot one going around a corner, but you rarely see one for long enough to be sure what it is, let alone take pictures to send to the local news. Salsa weren’t content with letting Bigfoot have all the fun, so they’ve unleashed the mighty Mukluk –a snowbike whose use isn’t limited to the four months each year when the ground is actually covered in snow. When summer rolls around –and it will, if you ride enough –swap the Mukluk’s super-fat 26-inch rims for standard 29-inchers and continue your forest fun. If that kind of tinkering isn't your style, run it fat all year-round —the Surly Larry tires roll just as smooth on rock and sand.

  • Massive 170-millimeter rear spacing, 135-millimeter front spacing, and a 100-millimeter bottom bracket spindle optimize the Mukluk for super floaty winter travel
  • Dual Rear Spacing allows you to run the 170-millimeter standard rear hub, or build a 17.5-millimeter offset rear wheel with 135-millimeter spacing
  • Salsa Enabler has fork-leg water bottle bosses, double eyelets for rack and fender mounting, and mid-blade eyelets for lowrider-style racks
  • SRAM X.7 Twist shifters are ideal for use with winter gloves
  • Low standover height makes on-snow dismounts a little less perilous
  • Avid BB7 brakes offer disc brake stopping power with cable reliability, and no risk of hydraulic freezes
  • Moon Shadow Blue Color helps you camouflage yourself from paranormal detectives

I had my bike shipped to the building where I work - "commercial" and it was free. The guy who delivered it called me on my cell phone when he was on his way and I met him there, pulled the box out of his truck, opened it, and slid the fully assembled bike right into the back of my car. Much better than spending the $100 to get it shipped to my house. I'm sure it costs at least that much to ship these bikes fully assembled - the box was huge!

FatBike In sand

Posted on

Responded on

Well that seems to answer my question about how they do in sand.

I would love to see one getting stuck in very loose sand.

They seem to go through the loose stuff at the start of the video fine.

Responded on

The guy with the regular bike didn't seem to have any trouble. I don't get it. This bike is advertised as being a go anywhere bike, but the only videos I've seen are of these bikes going on hard packed snow trails and compressed sand, which any regular MTB with 3.5's has no trouble whatsoever. The fact is, in loose snow and slush, the grip is lost when the contacted surface shifts under the lateral forces of turning. Once that front wheel slides away from the apex of your turn, you loose your forward momentum that's need to carry you through the muck. Anyway, that still isn't going to keep me from getting this kick ass bike. I just really dig the idea of having tires acting as the suspension and cutting down on maintenance.

Opinion of the Bike as yet unridden

This seems a very good price. Ive seen folks compare the build to the fatback Al frame bikes which tend to be $1k more. If the thing rides halfway decent it should be a very good deal.

I would love to get out on the sand this summer...

Any idea how long this build will last in...

Any idea how long this build will last in sand? I guess I will have to clean the chain often and wash off the sand/salt probably each ride.

it works in the sand. there is a video riding in the sand now on this page
