If you've ever wanted to ride your bike on almost any surface — then the sand-crushing, snow-loving, mud-negating, huge-tire-having Salsa Mukluk is the frame you've been waiting for. This 26-inch-wheeled, double-butted aluminum fat bike frame with Salsa's aluminum Bearpaw fork expands your riding territory and turns ordinary trails into a new, now-rideable experience. What's the secret to the Mukluk's prowess? That would be the wheels and tires it accepts. This frame is built to run up to 4.7-inch wide tires, providing flotation in snow, sand and mud allowing you to ride when other people are stuck. And you can ride singlespeed or geared, thanks to Salsa's Alternator dropouts. Other touches include 5 bottle mounts (3 on the frame, 2 on the fork), rack mounts, and shaped chainstays and seatstays for plenty of pedaling clearance even while wearing snow boots.
