    As i am 1,399.8 Kilometers (according to google maps) away from the bike I will try and remember.
    I puchased it as a complete bike in 2009. Used parts from it on other bikes for reasons only known to 2010 Stan. I recently had a clean up in the shed and this is what came of some the miscellaneous parts laying around.
    (the N.O.S. Y33 frame, White Bros SC90 fork, White Industries Hubs on Mavic rims, Cook Bros Racing Cranks and other bits and pieces are still awaiting assembly)

    so here goes.

    1st gen 16" Fargo with split shell EBB installed, powdercoated orange
    Woodchipper Bars 42cm
    Bontrager SSR stem 70or75mm
    Bontrager Bar tape
    Tektro levers RL-520
    Shimano XT Crankset and BB
    Crank Bros Candy 2 pedals
    DuraAce 9spd Chain
    Cane Creek S3 Headset
    Avid BB7 Mountain Front brake
    Salsa Shaft seatpost
    Brooks B17 Special Saddle
    Surly 36t 3/32 chainring
    Velo Solo 19t 6 bolt fixed cog
    Salsa Enabler fork
    Salsa Semi Disc29er rim laced to a Shimano XT, 36H Hub
    Maxxis Ardent 2.4 rear
    Surly Rolling Darryl (no cut out) laced to a Velocity SS hub
    Surly Larry front

    Did I miss anything?

    not a snow bike for first try...but it handled very well on packed snow... 26"x3.00" Kenda Flame... i came through almost every weather condition last winter... the springer fork gave me so suspension-feeling



    ... this year i'll have to try these... till my pug is ready...



    a 26"x3.00" Point Racing Bigfoot heavy DH Tire on a Flattop 26"x80mm rim with a 3speed torpedo hub (allthough it has 5 gears but i only use one side )

    ... no snowbikes... but in short time my will be finished ... at least i hope so...
    ... first snow is falling at this moment in Halle/Germany...

    I have a Salsa El Mariachi coming into my LBS and I am building a fat front up for it this winter. I am super pumped as its only a few weeks away from being here and done. Here is the fat front built up with a BFL on a Kawasaki Green Rolling Darryl:

    I like your style

    Not sure how it will translate into handling in snow though.

    Those springer forks are surprisingly competent for ironing out small bumps.

    That pic doesn't do this bike justice, even cooler in person. I was taken aback by how much ass you could haul on such a small gear ratio.

    Changed a few things since this photo but it's all just the same overall.

    Those wheels are tanks, had to upgrade to something a wee bit lighter.
