all about the

Salsa 2013 Mukluk 3 Complete Fat Bike

The Salsa Mukluk lives up to Salsa's "Adventure by Bike" statement like no other bike in their line up. Fat Biking started as a way for people who live north of the 40th Parallel to be able to extend their riding season throughout the winter, but as riders started using the bikes more and more because of the increased traction and stability in conditions other than snow.

The Mukluks Explore geometry puts the rider in a comfortable neutral position that is aggressive enough to rip around the local singletrack, but comfortable enough for a week long overland tour in places you didn't think a bike could get you.

The Mukluk is equipped with the right mounts should the beaches of Alaska or the forrest roads of Michigan's Upper Peninsula call your name. The Mukluk has the following mounts to add all your gear
Salsa also teamed up with Revelate Designs to create frame bags specifically for the Mukluk. Choosing a bag is easy just get the same size bag as your frame!

For 2013 Salsa did make some improvements/changes to the Mukluk. New for 2013 are:

  • 44mm headtube allows for the use of a straight 1-1/8 fork or if you need to shed so weight the new tapered Beargrease aluminum fork will also work if you change out the bottom headset cup.
  • Alternator dropouts have been added for those looking to run your Mukluk as a single speed. The Salsa Alternator dropouts were previously only available on the Ti version. Alternator dropouts are also used on the race proven El Mariachi in the NUE Series races and Ride the Divide Events.
  • Mukluk 3's get new paint, blue is so last year! This year you have the option of green or orange.

The Mukluk 3 complete is a solid package for riders looking to get into Fat Biking. Aside from the frame upgrades the Mukluk 3 complete gets the following upgrades for 2013 making it an even better value:

Salsa Snow ISIS double crank improves chainline over the previous TruVativ crank

Avid BB7's give more power and adjustability than the Avid BB5 brakes of the 2012 model.

Sram X.5 Trigger Shifters, this ones is up for debate. The X7 twist shifters were a little slow and had some play in them so the triggers are going to shift faster, but the twist shifters are easier to use with bulky gloves. If used with bar mits I would have to say that it is an improvement. 

Surly Nate 3.8" tires
are a better all season tire than the Larry/Endomorph combo which is better suited for snow only use.

asked by: A Visitor
Hi. I am a male, 5' 7" with a 30" inseam. Would I be looking at a Small or XS?
answered by: canteau
Generally you would be looking at a small or medium depending on how you set the bike up.
asked by: A Visitor
I live in the Southbay LA. How well does this bike do on sand?
answered by: canteau
Fat bikes work well on the sand, like any bike, post ride cleanup from both the sand and ocean salt is going to be key. Salt and sand can lead to premature wear for the drivetrain.
asked by: A Visitor
I am 6'2". Should I get a large or extra large. I seem to be right in the middle
answered by: canteau
Depending on how you are proportioned you are going to most likely be on the XL.
asked by: A Visitor
Do you accept paypal for online purchases?
answered by: canteau
We do not accept Pay Pal at this time.
asked by: A Visitor
Can you ship to Singapore?
answered by: canteau
We currently only ship to the US and Canada.
asked by: A Visitor
5'10" w/ 33.5" actual inseam - Salsa recommends M or L. Avantages/disadvantage
answered by: canteau
The smaller bike is going to be lighter and easier to control. You are also going to get a little additional standover on the medium, but depending on how you are proportioned you may like the additional room in the cockpit.
asked by: A Visitor
How long will i have to wait for a orange medium Mukluk?
answered by: mlewis
We currently cannot estimate shipping times for these bikes.
asked by: A Visitor
Do they make studded tires? Or can you stud these? Or is it necessary?
answered by: mlewis
Keep an eye out this winter for some new studded fat tires from 45North that should be great on ice. For regular snow you shouldn't need them.
asked by: A Visitor
Can you put 29er wheels/tire on it for summer riding?
answered by: canteau
Yes but they will need to be built with Mukluk hubs. The big tires are fun in the Sun too.
asked by: A Visitor
can the Mukluks be purchased as a single speed?
answered by: mlewis
The Mukluk comes from Salsa as a geared bike, but we can do a custom build on a frameset for you. Feel free to call us directly at 734.484.9999 for more info.

Review of the Salsa 2013 Mukluk 3 Complete Fat Bike:
This bike was an early Christmas present. Living on a country dirt road, I thought it would be awesome to get out in the winter and get some exercise, and it might just be OK year 'round. Salsa hit it out of the park with this one... I just may have to sell my other bike. This bike rolls right on top of the sandy shoulders of the road, moves along WAY easier when the road is soft and squishy, it just doesn't slow down for anything! I've finally been out on some trails with it, and roots, sticks, small logs, holes all hidden with a thick blanket of leaves don't phase it. It is a major conversation starter, and became a bit of a test ride bike over the weekend with everyone trying it falling in love and wanting one. Seriously.

Summed up: Pull the trigger and get this bike. Guaranteed more smiles per mile than anything else out there!

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Salsa 2013 Mukluk 3 Complete Fat Bike:
This bike is crazy awesome, one of the best bikes I have ever ridden or owned. Like it so much I called and ordered a second one one week after i got the first one for my wife. She loves hers also. This bike does everything a an offroad bike should. All I can say is your thinking about one buy it you won't be sorry. Also you should buy it from these folks here, they were awesome to deal with, fast friendly helpful service. Had a little problem with he first bike no biggie, called and they immediately resolved the isssue and sent me a free Tree Fort Bike beer glass. Just an awesome experience dealing with them and the bike.

Summed up: Wanted to emphasis my last comment, buy one buy from these great folks.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
