Fat Bike Tire Selection, Salsa Fat Bike Updates!

2013 Mukluk.  (Nice green!)

Looks like Nates, and appears to be a 2x crankset.  Can’t make out much detail on the controls, but still sporting BB7s.  However, do my eyes deceive me, or is that an oversized head tube?  Certainly looks bigger than my Mukluk’s head tube.  Also…alternator dropouts?

The FS Salsa Fatty is making an appearance again, too.

Can’t make out too many details with the low resolution picture, but looks like aluminum frame, Maxle, and probably around 80-100mm of rear travel.  Also looks like a triple crank (or is that a Mr. Whirly) and Rolling Darryls.

Perhaps the most exciting news:

Surly Lou 4.8″ Fatbike Tire

Looks like a big bad rear tire…

And Surly Bud 4.8

Looks like a killer front tire!  It also looks like I’m not the only one who has wanted some high-volume, more aggressive tires!

Propos to Volsung on MTBR for the tire pics…and KrateKraig for the Mukluk scoops.
