Build up thread for my Salsa Fargo ti. This was how it was when I first built it for the Otways/Great Ocean Road trip in August 2011.
Build as pictured:
Salsa Fargo ti frame in 56.5cm, with std steel fork, Salsa anything cages
44cm road bars
XT cranks, triple,
2200 series 8spd shifters
12-34 mega-range cassette
Topeak super tourist rack
Small block 8s
BB7r with 6" rotors
Fast forward to December 2013, this is how it looks:
Radically different: move to rackless bags, SON hub, 2x10 gearing and a heap of other mods, that I'll detail in a very in depth article on this page.
The Kiwi Brevet Fargo setup can be found here: (added 4/10/2014)
Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the articles!
