    So the new Mukluks will have the Beargrease fork combined with the bottle mounts of the Enabler?
    Hopefully the price is closer to the Enabler...

    Yep, will be called the Bearpaw fork if I seen correctly.

    That gold-ish color on the Muk 2 is really awesome. I also like the little downtube color detailing they did on the carbon... I've seen pictures of the X9 and had a hard time telling if that is actually a colored decal (purple/blue) or is it actually holographic? It looks almost like that color changing paint you see on cars... now that would be cool.

    Why Nates? I have a pair, but they came off quite quickly. Too much friction for me.

    No. But as the new Mukluk will have a Beargrease fork with benefits, it will be a reasonably light frameset (<3kg). And IMO the alu fork looks better than the steel too.

    The decals and colours of 2014 Salsas look nice. Except for Ti Mukluk. Like business in the front, party in the back

    Will the Ti Mukluk be built with the new (m.y. 2013+) geometry? Or are they still carrying over the old one?

    Good question bme107, I would assume the newer given it now has a updated 44mm HT and appears to have a shorter head tube/stack height.

    Good catch. I was just trying to figure it by BB drop comparison, but the pictures of the other models weren't as perfect from the side.

    I like the added paint, but it's just a bit too much IMO. Maybe just a couple of bands around the logo on the DT, maybe some on the SS and CS.

    I've been told the new titanium Muk is newer geo and rides better than the old one. That said, I am not getting rid of my old one.

    I'm not either, but it sure would be nice to add one to the stable! I love my 2013 Muk, but I really, really want a ti frame. I've done so many upgrades to my current bike, I could transfer all the parts to the ti frame and re-build my old bike back up stock. hmmmmmmm........
    got moto?

    I just got off the phone with Bikeman.com and he said they're not all showing on the dealer list yet. He saw the Muk2, Muk Ti and the Black Muk3 complete bikes. Still no release date from what he could tell. If someone would give a heads up on this thread when they become available, that would be awesome I'm after a black Muk3 frameset only. Been collecting parts for almost a year! Want to ride it!

    Your going to have to find a dealer that is willing to strip a Muk3 to get that frameset... Salsa is only selling the Muk Ti, Carbon Beargrease and the Gold Muk2 as Frameset only for 2014...

    Pretty sure you need to talk to your dealer to get a price on any new Salsa. Same issue with Surly. It would be nice to see msrp on their web sites but I think QBP does this to send prospective customers to the dealer. Makes good business sense but I would still like to see that price on the site.
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    Yea, even just ball park figure. If there is an msrp kickin round, my LBS is usually right there. Seriously looking at a Ti frame, but wondering how close all the options are in price. The O'Beast looks cheapest, and I really liked the feel of the one i rode. Yet to be able to demo a Mukluk, but it looks like 2013 framesets incl. fork were going for $2100+/- . Not so hot on the 2014 Muk ti colour scheme but geo change suits me fine. Damn purdy fatties...
