Hi Folks,

Selling my XL (22") Salsa Fargo, its a great bike and ive had a lot of fun with it but it overlaps my other bikes too much and im running out of space. Ive had it for a few months now, frame was ex-display and i built it to my own spec. Ive taken it on a few weekend trips but so there are some marks/rubs but it still looks great. Im selling it as 'almost complete' as i need the wheels for my other 29er, so you only need to add wheels to get a great all round touring/xc bike.

I would blooming love that bike - I've been looking for something I can use on the Downs, in town and on long hauls. It's the right size for me too. So it's with some disappointment that I tell you I can't afford it at the moment. Grrr.
