One of the most recommended forks on the market today has been introduced by Salsa Cycles for 2012. Named CroMoto, this fork is built from a Salsa Classico CroMoly that makes it outstanding both for replacement and upgrade purposes.

The CroMoto is a full CroMoly fork, which comes with forward-facing stainless steel dropouts and a 11/8in CroMoly steerer. Moreover, the suspension of this fork has been corrected for new forks with less than 80mm travel or older forks with 80mm travel suspension.

While the 2012 Salsa Cycles CroMoto Fork is lightweight, it is also incredibly rigid. On the other hand, the fork is not abusive so it is perfect for riders who are fond of retro items. Removable cantilever bosses will be featured by its 425mm version.

Although its still Summer, Salsa Cycles is thinking of you with their 2011 line. What we have is the Mukluk, a hardtail known as the Snow Bike.

The 2011 Salsa Cycles Mukluk will take to the snow with its wide rims and tires (tires are huge!), add those two together with proper pressure and you will cut through the snow with ease. The frame geometry is also perfected for the snow, and is achieved by your usual hardtail mtb.

One thing you might think of while riding through the snow, is going at slow speeds. 2011 Mukluk is a comfortable ride even at slow speeds with its tall headstube, low stand over height, and lower bottom bracket height.

The 2011 Mukluk snow bike comes as a complete or frame only.
