    quality looks great. mounted it up and just have a short ride with it...
    they claim water resistance. i wouldn't trust anything critical in any sort of bike bag (save and ortlieb) without a baggie or dry bag.

    zippers work well while riding. fit perfectly.

    The Scott bars are AT4s, possibly pros(?) as they have an extra curve towards the end. I had a set on my Scott Montana back in '91 or '92.

    stem specs

    can anyone tell me the stem specs for the 1st generation Fargo, esp. the bigger sizes. I am building up an XXL and ordering parts ahead and want to basically recreate the stock bike. I figure that will at least give me a good starting point and I can switch it out later.

    Thx!!

    ...and yes I went to the salsa archives but it does not state length/angle of stem

    yup, its an XL, I'm 6 foot 4 and its fits just fine, I swapped the seat post for a Thompson layback and the stem to a zero rise 120 Thompson just to tweak the position a little, very happy with the bike now.

    I think I may have been unclear with my question. I want the specs for the STEM. Namely, angle and length for the stock 1st generation fargo in the larger sizes. Thx!

    First gen XXL
    The stem is a 'final fit' item. I am 6'5" , want a bike to ride upright. I had to go with a max rise stem, uncut stearer tube, lots of spacers, and 1" riser bar.

    It was a 105 degree moto-ace stem.. Start with either a 110 or 120 mm length depending on torso length, riding style, intended use, etc...

    Just received and built up my 2012 Fargo 2 (Large) last week. My first 29er ever, and first drop bars for about 15yrs. Loving it so far A brown Brooks B17 and matching Salsa bar tape have been fitted sine these pics.

    Early days so still fussing with the cockpit/bars position, hence excess steerer, while I tune-in to the concept of riding off road on the drops.

    However - I'm 5' 11 3/4" (182cm) in bare feet, and the poor standover is (so far) a little perturbing and I wonder if the Medium may have been a better bet... (It's as if I need a "medium-and-a-half").

    went exploring on some new to me trails this Sunday. www.onoffrhodes.com
    Installed tubeless Slant Six tires too, what a difference compared to the WTB Nano tires.

    Question for All the Fargonistas Out There

    First a little background.

    I have an 09 XL Fargo (Fun Guy Green) with the XT build. I love it. Its my favorite bike of all time but I have often thought about a different bar; the Jones H Bar for instance.

    I just bought my wife a 2013 Fargo 3 as an upgrade from her Kona Africa Bike. She wants to begin increasing her mileage.

    As you can imagine, going from the very upright positon with the swept back handle bars on the Kona, the new Fargo feel a little stretched out to her.

    At present, the top of the bars on the Fargo are an inch or two above the top of the seat giving her as much of an upright position as possible with the Woodchippers.

    Now the quandry.

    She would like to be a little more upright still, so I was thinking about the Jones H Bar with a short stem, which would seem to create a riding position that is a little closer to what she had on the Kona.

    If I go with the H Bars, I'm thinking about some kind of adapter for the bar ends, the Paul Thumbies come to mind, and a mountain bike style of brake lever (if they will work with the Avid BB7 Roads that came on the bike).

    What do you all think about what I have described with the H Bars and the short stem, and how would you set up the shifters and the brakes. The Fargo 3 came with barends and road style brake levers.
