#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY: Mike's Custom Mukluk




I am always happy to get someone on a bike, its been a lifelong goal of mine even when I wasn't in the industry.  The joy I get from seeing someone who is stoked on their bike far outweighs much in my life aside from getting out on a bike and getting lost.  Mike contacted us about going the custom route with a budget, and we were happy to oblige, we even managed to put a Chris King headset on it and some Jeff Jones bars.  I you can dream it, we can build it.  I waited until sunset to shoot Mikes bike and in an undisclosed location I was able to find some beautiful natural light.  This Salsa Cycles Mukluk is built with a mix of SRAM component, 45NRTH VanHelga tires, set up tubeless on Surly Rolling Daryls (yep we do this a lot).  Keeping with the orange and green theme we used orange housing, a Mango Chris King headset and orange RaceFace cranks boots (these are excellent out here and keep the rocks from damaging cranks)  Mikes preference for Jones bars is something a fair amount of riders prefer on rigid bikes (myself included). Enjoy the photos, for more info on this bike check here.

I really liked this build, before this one I thought my gold and blue Muk was a top build, but this one was just wow.

I am extremely happy with the way it turned out at judging by Mike's positive email he is too.
