Description of Salsa BEARGREASE 2 Fatbike 26" MTB Frame Set 2015 - bomb pop blue
Salsa's fastest fatbike!
The Beargrease 2 is built on the foundation of Salsa's all-new 6066 Beargrease aluminum frame and thru-axle Makwa Carbon fork. Featuring the same geometry as the Beargrease carbon frames, this is a racing bike, and the wheels will not hold you back. Beargrease 2 might just be Salsa's fastest fatbike for your dollar.
Beargrease - Endure Geometry
Designed as a racing fatbike with race agility. Features same geometry as Beargrease Carbon, with a compact rear end that meets the demands of even the most aggressive racer, while still maintaining the proper weight distribution and stability required for navigating varied and difficult surface conditions. Maximized standover clearance aids dabbing, stopping, and restarting in tough trail conditions.
