Salsa Fargo w/ Mukluk fork or Surly KM w/ Pugsley fork
Got a question about a build I have been considering that doesn't fit neatly into one category. I've been on a single minded obsessive quest to build the ultimate in versatility and functionality on a single bike without having to sacrifice fun and rideability.
After lengthy discussion at my LBS today, the mechanic and I came to the conclusion of the two combinations I listed in the title. This would leave me the option of running geared while having a s/s freewheel on the front fork to switch out if the mood strikes or circumstances dictate. It would also allow me to run a range of tire sizes.
I mainly use my bike for single track, around town and when it snows I would like to be able to ride on trails and frozen creek beds.
So my question is anyone have a setup like this? And what are the general thoughts about this combo? Any advantages/disadvantages.
It seems pretty out there to me but i think it is crazy enough it just might work.
