Salsa Beargrease Carbon NX1 Fat Bike - 2018


The Beargrease is Salsa’s carbon hot rod fat bike, designed to convert strength and determination into speed. The super light chassis and the sure-footed rollover of 27.5 x 4″ wheels and tires reinforce Beargrease’s objective; to keep you in the express lane wherever you’re headed. Point your front wheel towards the start line of a race on groomed snow or singletrack, or pack light and challenge yourself on a big distance overnight bikepacking trip. Beargrease shines when the pressure’s on. With a capable Sram NX1 groupset giving a wide range of gears and simple but effective Hayes MX disc brakes combined with 27.5”x3.8” Maxxis Minion FBF Fat Tyres you’ll be able to navigate tracks and trails that you’d previously deemed un-rideable.

PLEASE NOTE:  All of our bikes are built to order.  This usually takes between 3-8 working days depending on time of year.

Absolutely perfect bike. Couldn't be happier. 27.5 wheels are huge improvement of fat biking. Beargrease frame is very solid and still sooo light.
