    Salsa Bucksaw Carbon Frame?

    Hi guys, is the salsa bucksaw carbon (2017) frame a good FS frame for a fatty, it comes with a Monarch RT DebonAir.

    At the mo i have a felt DD10 which is a HT so if i did get the bucksaw i would transfer most of the components (ones that are comaptible) from my DD10 to the bucksaw, but looking for opinions about this frame?

    Cheers

    I've put thousands of miles on my aluminum bucksaw. It is a great bike, just make sure you are buying it from a reputable shop (in case you have warranty issue). My warranty claim wasn't the smoothest with salsa, eventually got what I needed but...

    There have been reports of durability issues with the carbon versions. The aluminum frames are only a pound or so heavier, so unless weight is that important, it is another option.
