Bluto has arrived!

The new 2015 models of snow bikes from Salsa Cycles continue to arrive. Just showing up at the Century Cycles store in Peninsula this week is the 2015 Salsa Mukluk 2!

Bringing back the same Salsa Aluminum frame with Salsa's unique Alternator rear dropouts (which provide easy geared/singlespeed conversion), for 2015 the Mukluk 2 gets the new Bluto suspension fork from RockShox.

Developed specifically for fat/snow bikes, the Bluto fork was developed by RockShox after several years of prodding by Salsa and other snow bike manufacturers. On the Mukluk, it complements the built-in fat tire suspension, providing 100mm of real front suspension travel (that's about 4 inches for us 'Mericans).

Other upgrades over the 2014 model of the Mukluk 2 include SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes, and a Thomson stem to match the blingin' Thomson seatpost.

As we and Salsa will tell you, snow bikes are mountain bikes, and the '15 Mukluk 2 continues the evolution of fat bike technology into versatile rigs that not only take you through the snow, but take you through your terrain of choice all year round!
