Salsa seem intent on manufacturing bikes that enable riders to truly live their slogan, ‘Adventure by Bike’; the Fargo is another model in a range of machines built to take on multi-mile treks through the wilderness. This one ain’t stock, however. Matthew Mead can be found photographing weddings during the day, and he’s built this Fargo up as a custom tourer that reflects his appreciation for a pleasing composition.
Inspired to have longer adventures on his Fargo, Matthew gently upgraded various components to improve reliability and aesthetics. A touch of Chris King here, a tubeless wheel set from Greg at TWE there, and an SRAM groupset will provide miles of comfortable touring with all the modern refinements. Hopefully Matthew will take the camera with him on those adventures. Until then, check out portfolio website.
