We built James' Salsa Cycles Mukluk Ti to handle just about any terrain or weather. A Shimano Cycling XTR drive train and Hope Technology Ltd hubs ensure that those fat tires keep rolling no matter what mother nature puts in their way. White Brothers Cycling provides the fork for this snow-ready ride while a Thomson Bike Parts stem and Enve Composites handlebar round out the cockpit. An anodized Chris King Precision Components headset matches nicely with the stem, hubs, and seat collar.
We threw legs over bikes at a friend’s shop two blocks from the downtown train station, pedaled across the tracks, through the old city center, and in what seemed like less than half a mile were on dirt. That dirt led directly to the top of the San Francisco Peaks and to this delightful little righthander on the way down. So, yes, in Flagstaff, you can ride right from town. I highly recommend it.
