#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY: Erik's Salsa Bucksaw Custom Build, Hope UK & D.FENDER


In my effort to catch up with all of the stuff thats been going on lately, I neglected posting this bike.  Eric came to us in similar fashion to what we are seeing a lot of lately, people are dumping their Specialized bikes like bad habits.  We were happy to oblige, and took off his drivetrain that was ridden once, and built up something cool around it.  We handbuilt Hope UK hubs laced up to Surly Large Marge Lite bronze rims, added some SRAM cranks, a 1x10 drivetrain with a Wolftooth components 42T that is made right here in the USA.  Continuing on with the USA made theme we added a stealth D.FENDER to his build.  SRAM makes some pretty awesome brakes nowadays, the guide brakes help with the stopping power, while the RockShox Bluto helps to gain some speed.  Lastly the 45NRTH Huskr Du tires are one of our favorite tires, and set up tubeless really easily (even though they aren't a tubeless tire).  You have Fatbike Dreams?  We can make them come true, as we do daily here.
