    I don't have much experience with a rigid fork on a MTB. So I can't tell if this is a supposed to be like this.

    It's not just the fork flexing? They do flex a good bit.

    Thanks. Yeah that was it. There was a tiny amount of room between the spacers underneath the stem.

    Knees are fine.

    To post pictures you need to have them hosted somewhere. Pretty sure there is a sticky somewhere on here about it.

    Here's mine, after a quick singletrack ride shortly after work:



    I am digging the drop bars a lot. I wouldn't have guessed it, but I ride in the drops on singletrack pretty much all of the time. On the road I'm usually up on the hoods. It's great fun on singletrack and i haven't found myself longing for suspension yet.

    I was looking at my gen 1 fargo... bought the second or third year they were out? is it possible I have the salsa anything cage-compatible fork on it? my wife's gen 2 has them and the fork mounts look the same.

    I re-eyeballed it and they don't look quite the same.

    The gen 1 and gen 2 both have three holes on each fork leg, but:

    - the gen 2 holes are all spaced the same distance apart, to fit the Anything cage (the top hole on the gen 1 fork is set closer, and is meant for a strap to hold your bottle securely)

    - the gen 1 holes are rotated so the bottle sits closer to the wheel. The gen 2 holes rotated outwards to allow the bigger Anything cage to clear the fork

    A few pics from 6 day tour in the Elkhorn/blue mountains of E. Oregon. Carrying a pretty heavy load this trip as we had to pack all our food.....not a single shimmy to be found Salsa racks front and back.

    A ~128 mile overnighter. Pave, dirt, double track, single track, forest service road, hike a bike. Good stuff.

    hi,
    great pictures!!!

    I see you use dt swiss rims, which model exactly?

    what do you think about this used salsa fargo I might buy?

    velomarkt.ch/veloboerse.php?catid=11&subcatid=32&adid=171647

    it mounts avid BB7 mountain bike brakes,
    would it be possible to mount a woodchipper and sram apex road controls?

    Shimano SLX front and rear Derailleur,9 speed,Shimano Deore Crankset 22/32 with Salsa Chainguard.

    thanks

    thanks...!!!

    i'll write something up this week.
    was a great 1 1/2 day trip.

    fargo is definitely a do it all bike.
    ran the wtb vulpines as they are a favorite dirt / gravel tire.
    was wishing for more tire on some of that rocky single track section.
    of course, was always wishing for less on the road.


    i brought the wrong bike by mbeganyi, on Flickr

    followed the tri gals out (usa triathlon championships were in burlingotn this weekend) - closed course along my route out of town - so i kept to the right and was surprised at how quickly a few of them passed me, and how not so quickly some others did.

    did get alot of cheers, until people saw my bike, bags, gear!

    LOL...yea whatever it takes to make life a little easier. It was some amazing country and at least this time of year it was amazingly empty....even the paved portions.

    We sat on the bank of the N Fork John Day river 1 night and watched monster salmon coming upstream to spawn just a couple of feet away.

    Here's a short writeup from one of our group.

    Hi Doug, what gearing are you using when loaded up? I cannot decide on 22/32/44 with 11/36 or 24/36/48 with 11/36. What are your thoughts?

    I know that wasn't aimed at me, but I am running 24/32/44 with an 11-36... And there are some occasions where I wish I had a 22... Go as low as you canso it's there if you need it...
