    I would like to have a ‘full wrap’ around the down tube or an adapter to have some type of shield for the down tube. I think either would be an asset to the cables down there keeping them dry. I’ve read a few complaints about people not liking the cable routing on the Salsa. I think it makes sense. If it is snowing hard, top tube cables hold snow. Actually for me, I can’t tell the dif and I’m stoked when riding any design fat bike.
    Thanks, good job.

    Recently discovered this blog as I hope to join the FAT ranks once I get my Pugs built! I am soliciting opinions and/or recommendations about specific components that work well such as rim/tire combinations, double vs triple cranksets, or anything else applicable to snow winter riding. Any help would greatly be appreciated. thanks
