Fargo is Salsa's original drop bar mountain bike. A bit of a cult classic, it’s designed for mixed surface riders and bikepackers who want the versatility to take any route and the capability to carry everything needed when they’re out for days on end. The Fargo Steel's triple-butted Cobra Kai steel frame is as forgiving as it is reliable on weeks-long expeditions, while the carbon Firestarter fork pairs nicely with the frame and offers bosses and mount points for anything you’d want to attach to a bicycle fork. With an entire world of possible component setups, the Fargo Steel Frameset is a smooth-riding blank canvas you can build into the perfect tool for your two-wheeled needs.
If you’re like us, your bike needs will likely change by the day, week, month or year. Ogre will get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It even has the chops to handle a cross-country trek or nine. It’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. Ogre is designed to be the ultimate steel utility vehicle. It relishes in those “take-the-long-way-home-and-find-some-beverages-along-the-way” sort of commutes. You can also haul enough crap on it that you don’t even have to go home if you don’t want to. For this year, we simplified Ogre a bit. We removed the canti studs, so it is now a disc brake-only beast. Now, before you start yelling at us about how the canti studs were the only reason you were even considering buying an Ogre and now we’ve left you contemplating your very existence in this ultimately-doomed universe, hear us out. Rim brake 29er rims — like the ones that you would need to have to make use of those canti studs in the first place — are becoming increasingly harder to find. We could have given you a feature that you’d end up not really being able to use in the future but what kind of monsters do you think we are? To quench your unquenchable thirst for rim brakes, check out the Troll. As far as other updates to the frame go, that about sums it up. Ogre still has everything else you’ve come to know and love: two water bottle mounts, four sets of three-pack bosses, mid- and low-blade fork eyelets, threaded holes for racks, fenders, and trailer mounting nuts, and a Rohloff OEM2 axle plate slot. It still features horizontal-slotted dropouts with Gnot-Boost spacing, a tweaked non-suspension corrected geometry, and a beefy tire clearance. It’s still fully compatible with both 29 x 2.5” and 27.5+ tires. In the complete bike version, we’ve opted to go with a 1x drivetrain and a flat handlebar. We typically try to avoid BS cliché terms like “Do-It-All” or “Swiss Army Knife of Bikes”, so we’ll just say that Ogre can probably handle most of the ideas that are bouncing around in your head.
The Timberjack is Salsa's aluminum hardtail mountain bike that’s equally at home on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Designed with fast-handling trail geometry, clearance for either 29" or 27.5+ wheels and super short chainstays, aid in it's nimble agility. Alternator dropouts facilitate diverse drivetrain setups and emergency "just gotta get back to the trailhead" gearing. - 6061 aluminum butted frame - Alternator dropouts provide increased setup versatility - Short chainstays and long front-center for nimbleness and agility on the trail - Front triangle space is maximized for framepack use - Internal cable routing - Compatible with 27.5+ or 29" wheels - Headset included
The Timberjack Ti absolutely owns all paths — wooded, skinny, and flowy, making you the master of every ride thanks to its multi-talented character. The frame is constructed from custom, top-shelf titanium with a fast-handling geometry to deliver the stiffness needed to whip through tight turns and accelerate with instant power, while super-short chainstays make it easy to lift over obstacles so you can stay with the flow. Run it as a 27.5+ with up to 3-inch tires for maximum fun, or go for efficiency with a 29er wheelset — with Salsa's Alternator Dropouts you get an impressive grip of wheelset and drivetrain options to suit your style and intention.
DH is all about speed—that's true whether your aim is to climb the podium or to simply bring home all the bragging rights after a day at the park. If speed is what you're after, the Demo Race 29 is your sled. Everything about this bike is designed to get you from zero to Mach 10: a new frame design, improved kinematics, better braking, big wheels, and all today's newest fancy bits. It's time to get rowdy. We've refined the Demo's kinematics and suspension design. We had one overriding goal—improve the bike's ability to carry momentum, no matter how technical the terrain. More momentum equals more speed, after all. The revised axle path reduces hang-up on square-edged bumps and that, in turn, transfers more energy to the suspension and less to you. While we were at it, we also improved the Demo's suspension performance under braking and added a bit more anti-squat to improve its pedaling performance. Bottom line, the new Demo rolls faster through chunky terrain than its predecessor. To get your dream build started off right, the frame includes an Öhlins TTX rear shock with 200mm of travel, a 225x75 Trunnion mount, and high- and low-speed compression adjust. Finally, no DH rig would be complete without a Thomson seatpost, so yeah, we threw that in there, too. - M5 alloy construction works in harmony with our Style-Specific DH Geometry to create the ultimate race machine. The design is compact in order increase maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking big hits in stride. And to fill out all of the details that make the difference on race day, we’ve included an ISCG ‘05 mount for chain guides and all the bits to make it easy to work on. - Custom Ohlins TTX Trunnion rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high-/low-speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It has 200mm of coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find it anywhere else. - The Body Geometry Henge DH saddle features our proven Body Geometry design, and implements a cutout on the underside for added rear tire clearance.
The S-Works Epic Hardtail is the lightest production frame to date. Impressive, yes, but it's much more than that. We've also created the most capable and comfortable cross-country machine ever, because you're not fast if you're being pummeled by the trail. It's a game changer. - At 775 grams, the new S-Works Epic Hardtail chassis is the lightest production hardtail frame on earth. What’s more, we’ve designed it to be incredibly capable and comfortable, with progressive geometry and an advanced composite layup that boosts vertical compliance. We’ve optimized every inch of this frame, precisely tailoring the carbon and resin mix to create the perfect balance of weight, strength and compliance. We’ve gone full geek on the S-Works frame, obsessing over the shape of every overlap layer. While 3-D tailoring an overlap probably sounds like overkill, the extra time and labor spent doing it allows us to eliminate extraneous composite plies that were adding weight, but not improving strength. In other words, there’s a science to the weight savings.
If you’re looking for a frame that’s snappy, confident, and happiest on trails that make other hardtails cry, you’ve come to the right place. - The Fuse’s M4 aluminum frame is loaded with smart touches. - Wide-diameter down tube boosts stiffness. - Low-slung top tube gives you the clearance to throw the bike around on tight trails. - Adjustable dropouts let you run the Fuse geared or single-speed. - Tune the Fuse to your trails by changing chainstay length as much as 15 millimeters.
The S-Works Epic is the fastest XC rig on the planet—a bike with more World Champ titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than you can count. And now, we’re offering the S-Works Epic in a limited-edition, Troy Lee Designs frame and fork combination. Head to toe, this rig looks fast. Of course, countless race wins around the world testify to how damn fast the S-Works Epic truly is, but you know, it never hurts to look the part. At the heart of it all is the S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame—a chassis that offers the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight available. This bike, however, isn’t merely fast, it’s also one of the most capable cross-country machines on the World Cup circuit, with a geometry that’s designed to let you tackle the most technical courses at speed, with complete control. Speaking of speed and control, the TLD-edition frame sports 100mm of insanely efficient front and rear suspension. That efficiency comes courtesy of the ultralight RockShox SID World Cup fork and Brain 2.0 rear shock. The unique inertia valve in both the front and rear suspension help the bike stay firm and fast when the trail is smooth and then automatically become plush (and even faster) when the trail suddenly fills with rocks and roots. Brain-equipped suspension is, quite simply, suspension made smart. And since this is the TLD-edition we’re talking about, we also gave that RockShox SID World Cup fork and Micro Brain rear shock matching Troy Lee graphics. - S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on. - Custom Micro Brain shock offers easy tuning and unrivaled efficiency - Our custom RockShox SID WC fork with Brain features a full-carbon upper, top-adjust Brain Fade, and a custom offset, making it the perfect match to the new Epic.
The Fargo is Salsa’s original drop bar mountain bike. A bit of a cult classic, it’s designed for mixed surface riders and bikepackers that like variety in their routes, with the capability to carry everything needed when out for days on end. Carefully crafted in 3/2.5 seamless triple-butted Titanium tubing, paired with Salsa’s new Firestarter Carbon boost fork, this frameset is ready for any dream-bike build. - Titanium tube set provides appropriate stiffness and compliance for fantastic ride quality - Alternator Dropouts v1.5; split-able version of the renowned Alternator Dropout for ultimate drivetrain versatility, including belt drive and singlespeed setups - Adjustable rear spacing can accommodate 27.5+ or 29-inch wheels, and on sizes Small to X-large, 29+ - Firestarter 110 Carbon Deluxe boost fork features high modulus carbon construction, tapered steer tube and four sets of Three-Pack mounts to offer incredible load-carrying possibilities. Mid-blade mounts for low rider racks. Internal routing for Boost spacing Dynamo hubs and fender mounts (compatible with 29 x 2.2-inch tire maximum clearance) - Fork now has a 51mm offset and is designed for 180mm maximum rotors, with tire clearance for 27.5 x 2.8-3.0-inch or 29 x 2.2 – 3.0-inch sizes - Frameset includes front and rear Salsa Deadbolt Ultralight thru-axles, Cane Creek 40 Headset and Salsa Lip-Lock seat collar
The All-City Electric Queen was expressly made for maximum fun. Sitting squarely in the “trail” category it goes up almost as well as it comes back down. Short wheelbase, modern trail geometry, and plus size tire clearance makes this a non-stop dirt party no matter what terrain you’re tackling that day. Its whippy 612 chromoly frame with internal dropper post routing, boost spacing, and those short chainstays make berm-carving and wheelies second nature. Build your Queen with 27.5+ wheels and tires with your favorite fork, drivetrain, and brakes for a dreamy rig that rules with radical energy.
The Horsethief Carbon Frameset is where your dream trail bike begins. The Horsethief frameset can be built with either 29-inch or 27.5-plus wheels, and the flip chip allows for subtle geometry tweaks. The Split Pivot rear suspension technology and 120mm Fox Float DPS Performance Elite shock are a recipe for incredible small bump compliance and traction. With this solid foundation in place, just add the parts that make you happy—we can’t wait to see what you do with it.
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as they're offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 27.5+ sizes also feature two sets of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.

The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ‘ol spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy-squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations. For all the nuts and bolts of compatibility read Surly's blog on the subject.
The Karate Monkey frame features updated, progressive trail geometry, a new tubeset, and Surly’s Gnot-Boost rear dropout system to support multiple drivetrain and wheel size configurations. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly steel frame and fork; double-butted main triangle and 44mm headtube - Tubeset uses the same trumpet tubes found on Instigator 2.0 frame - Adjustable rear dropouts with 145mm Gnot-Boost spacing works with 142 x 12, 148 x 12mm, and 135mm w/ 10/12 washer - Internal dropper seatpost routing - 30.9mm seat tube ID - Clearance for 29 x 2.55 or 27.5 x 3 tires
Karate Monkey is a highly-versatile trail bike that plays the part of 29er and 27.5+ equally well. Multipurpose Hardtail Mountain Bike Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively ride on all sorts of gnarly terrain. Its frame is a highly-versatile canvas for whatever dirty masterpiece your brain cooks up. According to our computing machine (Thor) it can be set up in approximately 487 different configurations. Originally designed as a 29er (and the frame that helped spark the 29" wheel movement), the latest Karate Monkey is designed to perform just as admirably as a 27.5+ rig as well. This allows you to pick your poison — provided your poison is having a really great time while permanently donning a maniacal grin, of course. - Modern trail standards: dropper post compatibility, 44mm headtube, Gnot-Boost rear spacing, thru-axles, suspension-corrected fork - Compatibility with most mountain bike standards makes it the perfect parts bin bike (no rim brakes allowed, though) - Clearance for 29 x 2.5 or 27.5 x 3 tires
Krampus is a dedicated 29+ trail bike that can go over, off of, or through just about anything in its path. Breaking the Mold with a 29er Bike As the first "plus" bike to hit the market, Krampus changed the way many people approach trail riding. It’s shown people the light of how high-volume, large-diameter tires can vastly improve the ride experience. It’s also done a bang-up job dispelling the myth that big tires make you slow. Krampus is kind of like the opposite of a mullet: long in the front and short in the rear. With a long toptube and compact chainstays, it takes trail-shredding abilities to the next level. A mullet may be business in the front, party in the back but Krampus makes partying its business. "Lean back, hang on, and ride that wild horse." -Thor - Modern trail standards: dropper post compatibility, 44mm headtube, Gnot-Boost rear spacing, thru-axles, suspension corrected fork - Compatibility with most mountain bike standards makes it the perfect parts bin bike (no rim brakes allowed, though) - Clearance for 29 x 3" tires
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it’s not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent’s basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that’s up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Our Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. We’ve also adorned this frame with our Gnot-Boost spacing, allowing you to use any mountain bike hub whether it be 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm thru-axle, or 12 x 148mm Boost hub. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and the dropouts still allow you to run disc brakes, fenders, a Rohloff hub, and racks simultaneously. It also comes with more braze-ons than you thought possible – there are four triple bottle mounts on the fork alone (don’t get excited, you can only run one Anything Cage per fork leg), as well as two more triple bottle mounts on the down tube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible. Man has known for eons the call of the indifferent forest. The inexorable march of time, and dumb crap like cell phones, have dulled our senses and made us afraid. Reclaim your animalistic tendencies atop Man’s greatest invention.
Lowside is the bike that gets you across town for a quick rip on singletrack, then over to the bar for a night out. Lowside is like the grownup version of the bike you rode when you were a kid and still had hopes and dreams and some semblance of ambition. It’s just as happy riding singletrack as it is parked outside your favorite drinking establishment. Lowside is a singlespeed. Singlespeeding has been a part of Surly’s DNA since day one when we launched the 1x1 Rat Ride. After a lot of Homie Fall Fests and more feats of strength than we can recall, we decided to discontinue it a couple years back. Lowside picks up right where the 1x1 left off. Some have dubbed the Lowside the ultimate pub cruiser. - Modern trail standards: dropper post compatibility, 44mm headtube, Gnot-Boost rear spacing, thru-axles - Compatibility with most mountain bike standards makes it the perfect parts bin bike (no rim brakes allowed though) - Clearance for 26 x 3 or 27.5 x 2.8 tires

The Surly Pugsley may be the original fat bike, but this one is far from the original. Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Pugsley has been redesigned to be an ideal off-road touring and exploration rig. Surly lengthened the chainstays 12mm for stability when loaded and so your heels float effortlessly past panniers. The tweaked rear rack mounts on the dropouts let you center your rack over the wheel, despite the offset rear triangle. Those dropouts will take a 142 x 12mm thru axle if that's your schtick, but can also be used with 135 x 10mmm QR hubs with Surly's Adapter Washers. Pugsley brings back the 135mm-spaced offset fork, so you can run a front wheel with a spare cog or freewheel as a bail-out option to swap with the rear if your internally-geared hub freezes up in neutral or you smash your derailleur having too much fun. A plethora of three-pack mounts give you gear-hauling options aplenty, so go wild with your build. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1-1/8" threadless brazed chromoly fork - Four sets of Three-Pack Mounts (two on the fork, two on the downtube), a water bottle mount on the seat tube, and front and rear rack mounts - 142 x 12mm rear dropout (or 135 x 10mm QR with Surly 10/12 Adapter Washers) with Rohloff torque arm slot - 135mm-spaced fork with 17.5mm offset for wheel swappability - 26 x 4.8" tire clearance in frame (with drivetrain restrictions), 26 x 4.3" tire clearance in fork

This is the second version of a 650b mountain bike from Ritchey – Tom started to design his first in 1977. Even back then, Tom had a feeling that there was an advantage to the "middle" wheel size, but it took the rest of the cycling world three decades to figure it out: a 650b (or 27.5") wheel provides the bump-eating smoothness of a 29er, with the light, responsive feel of 26" wheels. Finally, the era of the 650b wheel is here. The P-650b is a close relative to the P-29er. Up front there's the proprietary forged-and-machined, gram-shaving integrated head tube featured on all new Ritchey frames. Forged socket dropouts and a new chainstay-mounted rear disc brake mount save a few more grams. And like every frame Ritchey makes, geometry and tubing is carefully fine-tuned by Tom, to bring the legendary balanced, nimble Ritchey feel to 27.5-inch wheels. - Weight: 2,028g for frame (L/17”) - Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5” tapered head tube - Clearance for up to 2.25-inch tires - Fork: Designed for use with 100mm travel forks - Headset: Integrated 1.5” tapered - Upper bearing: 41.8mm OD / IS42/28.6 (S.H.I.S.) - Lower bearing: 52mm OD / IS52/40 (S.H.I.S.) - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Rear spacing: 10x135 - Front derailleur: 28.6 low clamp – top or dual pull - Weight: 2178g / 4.8 lbs (M/17”, frame only)
