In an unexpected media announcement, Salsa just dropped the 2019 Fargo Ti frameset with an all new Firestarter 110 Carbon Deluxe Fork… complete with four sets of three-pack mounts.

Originally released in 2009, and purpose built to ride the Tour Divide, the Fargo is the classic drop-bar bike designed specifically for off-road touring and bikepacking. It has since been used by many riders for countless trips down the 2,700+ mile route, but that’s not all it can do. From bikepacking to fully-loaded touring, from singletrack to gravel racing, the Fargo a lot of folks’ jack of all trades. Today Salsa announced the latest incarnation of the titanium version with an all new BOOST-spaced Firestarter 110 Carbon Deluxe Fork. Here are the details:

The Fargo Ti frame itself is unchanged. It still features 3/2.5 seamless Titanium tubing, with the same geometry, belt drive compatible V1.5 Alternator dropouts, and multiple wheelsize options (27.5+, 29, or 29+). So what’s new?
