There are meny diffrent schools regarding frame material. Many means that "Steel is real". Others think carbon fiber is the way to go, light, stiff and stealthy.

I had the fat bike for a week now. I just gotta say. It´s the most fun bike i ever owned. It sure is a eye catcher. If you want to be discrete fat bikes are not for you. 😉 Almost every one asks: What do you use it for? Isn´t it heavy to ride… Continue reading Fat Bike Fun!

Wanted that old-school "Klunkerz" look. And the Mary bars has a nice back-sweep. The Inbred seatpost is also from On-one. Love the Inbred… Continue reading Fat bike update.
