The Salsa Bucksaw is notable as the first widely-distributed full suspension fat bike on the market, and then subsequently the first carbon full suspension fat bike. It’s been widely-acclaimed for its incredible versatility. As I concluded my own test ride review of the Bucksaw: “If you want to ride all year round, in every condition imaginable, and you truly are looking for the one-quiver bike, there is no more capable mountain bike than the Bucksaw and its full-suspension fat bike brethren.”

The Bucksaw was voted the #1 fat bike in our 2015 survey.
