    Here's the deal with Salsa...we recently had a discussion with them about it. There is a "dealer territory" that is protected. This protection means that they have exclusive rights to "complete bikes". Next they have 1st rights to sizes when they start to run low.

    The HH shop can get Salsa frames when the size runs are plentiful, but no complete bikes.

    Isn't Salsa owned by QBP? (Dirt Rag, recent article) Why would they limit the sales of their "house brand"? Silly Salsa kids...

    I'd have an El Mariachi by now if Cody could have sold me one. We tried...

    Todd Mayo, I remember you from college. I'm friends with Beck/Andrew/Buc. My name is Travis.

    I am leaning heavily towards a Salsa Fargo right now. I'm actually in contact with a guy who has been demoing one for a couple months and picking his brain about it. I want to know how it rides on singletrack, especially in Austin. I'm a little worried about the shifters on it but that's because I've never used those types of shifters before.

    I REALLY want to do a tour like this:
    my house out to Pace Bend to Reimers, to wherever there is more singletrack out there and back to my house. Do it in 2 days or so. Seems like a fun time. I think the Fargo would be perfect for that kind of thing.

    Yeah Salsa Fargo looks interesting - I only wish they affered
    SS-couplers as an option - that would be perfect bike to travel
    and explore places.

    Well, if the tubing is steel and round then get a frame and send it off to Bilenky Cycle Works - they'll put the couplers into the frame and sell you a case for around $ 500.00.

    I've done it with a couple of Soma DoubleCross frames. The Mrs and I are very pleased with the outcome.

    Yes - that takes care of the frame but what about cables. I have zero experience
    with collapsible bikes but don't you need some special arrangements to make it
    possible to have cables that you can disconnect?
    BTW - I emailed Salsa asking about SS-couplers and they replied that that
    idea is being discussed a lot there - so perhaps on next model.

    Travis, I think I remember you. Weren't you the guy that used to pummel Geno back in 99? I will be doing some research on the Fargo. Looks like they will be coming in early March. PM me if you have any questions.

    He used to talk crap about my BIKE! I wouldn't say it was a pummel but he wasn't happy about it.

    SS version would be pretty cool, yes. It'll be interesting to see where things go for this bike. There's really an emerging market in these sorts of bikes, cargo bikes and functional commuter bikes. I'm not even sure I need one, but I want one!

    I am going to have to send a link to him for this forum. He would probably enjoy some trash-talking for old time sake. What were you racing back then?

    It was a Haro I think he had a fancy Litespeed, but he may have still been on his Canondale. Ah, those were the days.

    I got it from Will Blacks cycling coach. It had full XTR though and a fancy blue SID fork. That thing was sweet! Yeah, tell the guy I said hi.

    Screw together cable disconnects are included in the S & S pack kit. You'll need an additional set of cables to make 'em work though. I have reservations about using the disconnect on a brake cable though.
