    Salsa Mukluk 2

    So I've got the bug and wanted to pick up a Mukluk this season. But missed out on one at the LBS. Well now after speaking to the two Salsa dealers in my area, they each spoke of a Mukluk 2. Lighter is what they mostly said. Out in October of 2011. Anybody know anything about this?

    Well, V.1 had some damn porky parts on it to hit a certain price point (read as: cheap). V.2 they will probably swap out a few bits for lighter versions. I would be surprised if they saved weight off the frame.

    Just get a Fatback now. There's still plenty of winter left. Believe me, I know.

    Fatbikes aren't just for winter.

    Think of all the other soft riding conditions around, eg sand, gravel, because they excel on those too. They are also surprisingly capable on rocky technical stuff.

    Very interesting.

    Ligter tubes and rims, perhaps?

    I wonder if they'll change the rear brake cable routing. The reduction in length would save a few ounces, but could be a technical improvement too.

    For selfish reasons, I hope V2 isn't TOO big of an improvement over my V1!

    Please update us if you happen to hear more!

    The Ti Fatbacks have a really gentle curve to the top tube, not the big bend that the AL frames have.

    Wow, between all the Salsas, Fatbacks, not to mention others, how does Lynskey find time to build their own stuff?!?
    Pricing would probably be close, so unless you were getting a shop deal from Salsa, I'd also agree to support Speedway and Fatback.

    Link is still live as of this morning.

    See that seat post?

    Nice move to go ano on the aluminum frame. Interesting change to an Endo for the rear tire. Reflects what I see most guys using here.

    I like the color better on the new one. I've had too many blue bikes over the years. When will the Mukluk 2 be available?

    Are they still keeping that ridiculous rear brake cable routing, or is that just a half assed photoshop job to show the look of the new frame?

    Hmmm, I like it. I wonder if the Ti. frame will actually happen or if it's just a rumor. I'll stay tuned.

    I would bet the Ti. frame is coming and probably sooner then the Anno. version, my guess picture a Ti. Fatback with a round down tube and a sloping instead of curved top tube.

    The brake line is fine if you run a decent brake instead of the BB7.
