When this year's Mukluk 2's rolled out I again had a frame and fork come in for myself. Once again I sold that due to high demand. This left me in a bit of an interesting position. I wanted a Mukluk and had all the parts to build it. Blue's a perfectly good Mukluk color, but there are now a bunch of those out there. A solution to this was easily found at my local powder coating shop!
Shazam! One non-standard Mukluk.
The color is a very bright orange with a gold metal flake clear coat. It looks amazing in person, and it harder than heck to photograph. The contrast against the all black components and the black Revelate bags is awesome.
Drivetrain set up on this bike is a 2x8 with a 10spd Sram set up. The shifters are Sram TT style bar ends with Paul Thumbie thumb shifter mounts. I really like this set up so far. Shifting is great and the range of the 15t-36t cassette seems really good. The brakes are Avid XO hydraulic discs. Bar is a Salsa Promoto Carbon with a Salsa Promoto Ti stem. Grips are my favorite, Dimension cork.
Little 140mm rotor, big black Salsa hub, little DT Swiss spokes, big 36t cassette cog!
Big Fat Larry's on 80mm drilled Rolling Darryl rims should be about optimal for all around winter conditions.
I love how this bike turned out. I look forward to bombing around on it, snow or no snow! It's time to rip it up!
