    Shakedown ride

    My friend Bob has caught the bikepacking bug and he ordered up a salsa fargo.... was a nice 30 miles with him

    Bob is over twice as old as I and its always a hoot to ride with him, and was fun to help him get the fit dialed as well

    Dave, Why do so many bikepackers like the Fargo over other bikes?

    Why would I want it over using my existing bike?
