    They are better, but still just ok. I got some SRAM S700s of craigslist and will be putting them on in a couple weeks. Now I just need a better wheelset and fenders and I am done.

    I've been really surprised that I've liked the bike this much. I have several quibbles, but it is a great bike. I'm going to SS it when I swap out the shifters.

    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone on here has an xsmall frame. I am 5'1 and considering a fargo for my dirt/trail touring but am concerned about such a small frame on 29er tires. An problems fitting a butt bag between the saddle and the rear tire? Are there any other shorties out there?

    Thanks
    Monica

    my wife has an XS 2016 Fargo X9 and absolutely loves it

    it only fits 1 water bottle inside the frame, and a water bottle in the downtube water bottle holder will tend to brush up against a fender. Those are her only complaints.

    i was thinking about getting an XS fargo for my fiancé, but that triangle is so small, i'm not sure how much a frame bag can carry in there. if anyone has a photo of an XS loaded for travel, i'd love to see it.
    In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

    I would love to see that too.

    Man all my triangles are so ridiculously tiny. Right now on my MB-1 the only "frame bag" I can fit between my water bottles is a revelate Jerrycan bag stuffed in upside down. It can only fit my flat repair kit. I don't know if you can get away with from that with frames my size.

    They were squishy and a tad muddy in spots up to about 10:00am. then the wind took care of that.

    New bars?

    Need some new bars all of a sudden. What did you guys decide was the best? I bent my Origin8 Gary sweep bars on some lava rocks. I like the lessss drop of the origin8 bars. A little wider would be nice. Did Salsa come out with version 3 or anything¿

    Soma Junebug. Very similar to the Midge, but a big longer in the extensions.

    Are those more or less wide than the Gary Sweep OS ?

    Don't know, as I've never used the GS OS. Soma lists the Junebug as being 45cm wide, and they only come in one size. Unfortunately, I don't find a lot of consistency in how different companies measure their bars, but if this is helpful, here is a pic of the Junebug next to a 44cm Woodchipper:
