Just when you thought it was safe to go out and buy your full suspension fat bike, Salsa has today announced that there’ll be a carbon fibre version of the Bucksaw.
The full suspension fat bike – the Bucksaw was launched at the Sea Otter this year and features 100mm of travel front and rear. There’s Dave Weagle’s Split Pivot technology out back and SRAM’s new Bluto fork from Rockshox at the front.
This is true of the Bucksaw Carbon, only the addition of the magic plastic drops the frame weight by 300g. The bike will take 4in tyres and will be available as a frameset or a full bike build. For 2015 it looks like Salsa in the UK will be dealing direct with bike shops, having recently parted ways with Ison Distribution.
