I am new here, so thanks for bearing with me. I saw a few other threads about 2014 and 2015 Blackborow, but the 2016 with the bluto and gx1 package hasn't been mentioned anywhere. Has the Blackborow been discontinued for a reason? It looks like the 2017 Mukluk is the 2016 Blackborow.

Reasons unexplained, as I recall.
GX1...same bike, different parts. The GX1 spec is solid and comes with the 100mm wheelset it was designed around.
The bike runs great rigid or bouncy. It's a very versatile frame. It came and went a bit of a sleeper, but it's a rad bike. Salsa fat hangs it's hat on the geometry.
Mukluk does not equal Blackborow. The Blackborow was one of the few (the only?) stock bikes that could run 2XL on 100s.
All the info you need is here in spades.
I prefer google for searching... subject + mtbr
