My Mukluk build is going to look significantly different than most. Since their introduction almost a year ago, I have become addicted to Salsa Woodchipper handlebars. I have them on my Potts, I have them on my Fargo, and I have them on my Rawland. A short stint on a set of traditional high sweep set of bars has me convinced I want the same set up on my Mukluk.
The Mukluk lends itself to a drop bar set up more than a traditional, 29er mountain bike frame. I will be using a medium sized frame with a 23.6" ETT. The higher than normal front end and shorter than standard effective top tube fits right in with what I have in mind. This set up will let me use barcon style shifters, which I also prefer. The bike will still need a custom stem to get the bars up high enough, and to keep my weight far enough off the front wheel to maintain a rear weight bias. I'll share the rest of the build highlights after I make my final decision on what drive train I will use.
This bike set up duplicates that of my Potts and Fargo, albeit with a 20mm offset seat post and a slightly higher drop position. I'm sure it will vary a little once I have int here to play with, but this is really quite close to what should be perfect.
