Most fun bike I have ever owned. It is fast, comfortable and highly capable and highly versatile. Having owned countless bikes since I got into riding in the early 90's. From high-end mountain and road bikes. If I could only own one bike. The Salsa Fargo would be it.
I've run a few different tires. The stock rubber of course. To 32mm road tires. I got some Schwalbe Super Moto 29*2.35 tires.
I've even set some Strava road segments KOM's on it and they are still holding.
I've never ridden a more confidence inspiring road downhill descending bike while running the Schwalbe Super Moto 29*2.35 tires. The bike feels like it is in-between a bicycle and motorcycle. Immense grip, smooth ride, totally muted sense of speed.
Problems? Just the usual creakings and clicking. The headset starting clicking and creaking at the lower race. LBS got it stop. The thudbuster seat clamp is another story. It still creaks pretty much all the time. Still trying to find a solution that isn't replacing it with a normal seatpost. The external bearing BB setup is starting to creak. LBS is going to take it apart. Clean it up and lube it up again.
Just a vid about my Super Moto tires...
