Salsa's Beargrease Carbon pulls out all the stops. Now you can push the limits over snow, sand, mud and any other previously unrideable surface. The Bear's heart is an amazing lightweight, efficient carbon frameset with a tapered front end and carbon Salsa Makwa fork that minimizes the weight and maximizes the performance with outstanding durability to match your trailblazing lifestyle. This fast fatty rolls on sweet Salsa/Surly hoops with 3.8-inch wide 45North Dillinger tires to float over everything in your path, enveloping obstacles in cushy, low-psi rubber. Its 11-speed SRAM X1 drivetrain shifts crisply and efficiently while the hydraulic SRAM DB5 brakes deliver all-conditions stopping power. The quality Salsa Salt Flat 2 bar, Guide stem, and lock-on grips, as well as the stellar WTB saddle show that the Beargrease Carbon means business. Leave a fresh track.

I have a race bike for 3 seasons and looking for bike for the winter season. Looked at the usual suspects in Trek and Specialized. Decent, but components were less than enticing at a steep.price. Then stumbled on the salsa product...great components, solid look and feel...very precision, maybe more so then my Bianchi coast to coast (that I really like) fit and finish excellent, shifts effortlessly, comfortable, nice over rough terrain, but would like to try shock fork. Salsa Beargrease carbon 1. Believe best value for money....
