#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY: Rick's Salsa Mukluk Ti.



Ti bikes have a special place in my heart.  Ti bikes with an awesome stock paint job thats well executed hold an even closer place to my heart. When someone asks whats the last bike I'll need, this could be the answer, TI FATBIKE!  Lets see, start with a frame that can handle more abuse than almost anything, add some bombproof Hope Hubs (made in UK) and a Chris King headset (made in USA) and you have one hell of a combo for longevity.  I had the pleasure of doing some pretty awesome bikes this year, and this is in my top two, its elegant yet theres something modern about it.  Have a look for yourselves.

I agree- this is sweet. Love the two-tone finish, adjustable dropout, and total component spec. Titanium framesets are at the top, right along with quality carbon, in my book of most lovely exotics.

What a sweet bike Rick! A true beast of a bike for a beast of a man.

I am super happy with the way this bike came out, some proper planning right down to the nipple choices.

Can you remember what size front chainring was used on this Mukluk?
