We raced Version 1 of these awesome bikes at the first Silk Road Mountain Race  You might want to take a read of our account here – click for blog

Short version is that we finished, had fun and the bikes were fast, comfortable and trouble free. We’ve supplied numerous to other riders completing similar adventures.

Still what we consider the carbon evolution of the Fargo, Version 2 of the racey Cutthroat features full carbon frame, a Class 5 Vibration Reduction System in the seatstays, and a racing-inspired geometry making a quick bike that won’t leave you pummelled as you ride alongside the rising moon. Changes for this year include a 32% more compliant fork, longer wheelbase for increased stability day after day, dynamo cable routing and new direct mount frame bags. Road boost drivetrain (46/30 chain sets) on some complete models with the ability to run a standard 50/34. It’s what you’ve been waiting for!
