    Anyone running a rack on their Fargo that sold for less than $100? I've been looking for a Blackburn or similar rack for on-road touring this summer but don't need the strength or cost of Salsa's Fargo-Friendly racks.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    I paid about $25.00 for my rack off Ebay and have been using it for quite awhile without issue so far

    Those new blackburn racks look pretty nice. I have front on backorder now. I want something that allows me to get the bags a bit higher than the salsa low riders. Will post up impressions/photos once I get it.

    Hot ... 34 C today, I had to go to my favourite beer garden and stare at the Fargo. Refreshing ;-)

    What size frame do you have? I am trying to fit a Med. Do you know what size bag you got?

    Thanks, TT

    Have you been happy with the Jones bar? It looks super comfortable. Thanks

    Hi how long is that stem you are using with the Jones bar? I have a loop bar I have been thinking of trying out. Can you tell me how tall you are and what size bike etc. Thanks, Harry

    For those of us using the Fargo for road touring/commuting, I think these may work well.

    VO Fluted 63mm Fenders, 700c

    Thoughts? I have VO aluminum fenders on my other commuting bike, and love them!

    I have a 2013 Fargo medium and have the medium Tangle bag. It fits a little snug in the front corner of the frame but the length of the bag is right. A bottle in the seat tube cage butts up into the bag and is a little awkward. it helps to use a side entry bottle cage.

    Received and installed the Blackburn Outpost front rack yesterday on my fargo. I like it except for the shortish top platform. It is removable so perhaps I will remove it and see if I can make the Salsa Minimalist rack work with the blackburn. It does meet my goal of getting front panniers up higher though. Will be using it this weekend on an overnighter with some rough terrain.

    I raised the rack up a bit after this pic was taken. It was to close to the tire.

    Yea sorry not sure how much it weighs though it felt pretty light to me and it is made out of aluminum.

    I went ahead and removed the top platform that it came with and put the minimalist back on. Doesn't look to bad and will be more functional i think.

    This says 810 grams. More than some, less than others. You knew that.

    You blew it Doug. Lynskey has a new Titanium rack

    You only have to be moderately rich to afford it:

    Helmut,

    I cannot stress how much I love your set up enough! You've inspired me to look into doing something similar. LOVE it!

    I really, really don't need a Fargo, and really, really should spend a few more years beating up on my 29er before even thinking about one. But those blue frames sure are purty.

    A couple shots from our Gold Belt tour over the Holiday weekend.
    176 miles, 17,000+ ft elevation gain and miles of smiles around Colorado's riches mining town's in their heyday.

    I love this bike!
