    Cool! That looks like a really fun bike. Reminds me a lot of my touring bike.

    Drop Bar Stoke

    Not bored either, but I do like a drop bar MTB. Here's a link to my Fargo over at my Flickr site.

    Maybe because it's a touring bike frame? Wish my 58CM LHT would fit my 2.1 Nanos. It would make a great gravel grinder.

    My short lived drop bar MTB below. The config in this shot left the bars way too low and I finally came close, but had to use a goofy extender on my steerer tube which was unsightly and unsafe. It did however make me see that a drop bar MTB was something I really wanted.

    I bounced around the idea of a custom (in my opinion, the only way to do it right). That was until the Fargo came along. I thought I would be riding it this weekend, but it showed up with a ovalized headtube (not a manufacturing defect, but rather shipping/poor packing damage).

    Big thanks to Salsa for making such a cool bike. I think it should work nice. Te headtube is almost 5 inches longer than my KM! Hopefully I will be on mine soon and post up some pics.

    Nice looking setup. I like the subtle details on your IF - the dropouts look great and the black PC'd XTR is spot on!

    latest (and last) iteration of the drop bar Monocog Flight. Parts have transitioned to a different frame so this one can get smoothed/powdercoated as a gift for my Dad's birthday.

    In my pic - I have a set of ESI chunky grips underneath the bar tape (which is some average cinelli or profile design stuff found at the LBS). Fizik makes some very nice bar phat as well.

    For a cheap fix, find an old computer mouse pad -- the kind that are made from 1/4" foam rubber. Cut it into strips that'll wrap around your bars, tape it in place, then cover with your favorite standard bar wrap. Might sound dorky but it works quite well.

    My Fargo's drop bar evolution...

    Over the past seven months, I've run three drop bars on my Fargo. First, it was a Salsa Bell Lap (46cm). Next, I went to a WTB. Now, I'm running an On One Mary bar, upside down. All net out the same position on the "drop", but the Mary bar is my favorite bar riding so far.

    Good stuff...

    I'm glad this thread popped up again. Here's my Kona with a new fork, new bar tape (single layer of Easton), and a new pile of spacers.

    if you find this post, could you give me the details on that stem? your bars seem higher than most, which is where i would like mine...unfortunately i've cut all my steer tubes.

    This is my very first frame/fork I built 3 years ago, now converted to drop bars, with a mix of cheap second hand or ebay parts (except the wheels...).
    I need to adjust the stem a little bit (could be longer), but otherwise it works quite well.

    It seems like there should be an MTB touring/monstercross forum. I've got a few questions about Fargos, crossxchecks, and touring and so on that I can't figure how to ask in the existing forums.

    The 29er forum has been pretty open to those questions; look at the monstercross threads, the single speed threads, even the mention of going back to a 26" wheel, and all get good answers most of the time. Since 29er = 700c = 29er, this seems to be the place. Post 'em up!

    Or think of any ride that lasts more than a few hours where a hydration pack on your back will just beat you down. Some of us are getting older and our backs don't take kindly to being part beast of burden, part cyclist. That's where the bottles are really appreciated!

    And when I say "more than a few hours", I am talking double digit hours in the saddle. Sometimes that means all those bottles and a hydration pack!

    Exactly......I wear a hydration pack with my other bikes. It doesn't bother me to much but is a nicer ride without.

    Thanks for the positive comment. That stem is an IRD F4 Mountain Riser and is 35degreex125mm reach. I did leave a good section of steerer which also helps, but the stem is really a nice option if you are running a standard diameter bar. With this set-up the drops fall naturally into hand during rides and really provides a great position for both comfort and control.

    I'm more intrigued by the position of your paniers.
    Since you've got these wonderful sturdy racks, why don't you use lateral paniers. From my cyclo-camping experience (a few years ago), weight distribution is much better when the load is as low as possible. So I'd say unless you go on tight single tracks ???

    Since you've got these wonderful sturdy racks, why don't you use lateral paniers. From my cyclo-camping experience (a few years ago), weight distribution is much better when the load is as low as possible. So I'd say unless you go on tight single tracks ???
    Yea, I have a set of ortlieb panniers for front and back but don't use them when just out for a day trip.

    It is a great bike. Monstercross? Drop bar MTB?

    I don't really care what name gets attached to it. To me, it's a great BIKE.
