    QBP in the hunt with new outdoor brand | Bicycle Retailer and Industry News



    Methinks they are either on something or onto something.

    +1 - I think a little of both.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Special Ed's Epic Slaughter line of hunting specific fatbikes that is sure to be released in 2015.

    Hopefully they'll also come out with a line of camo fatbike tires at a reasonable pricepoint!
    Safe riding,

    I missed it the first go 'round too, so thanks for bringing it back up. It looks like a fairly nice fat bike. definitely way better than the "hunting bike" from Fat Sand Cruisers.

    I don't know if limiting the market to Scheel's is a good Idea. I haven't even heard of the place, but then I'm no hunter.

    I think they should make this frame design part of the Surly, or Salsa lineup, or maybe the whole bike. I like the bent top tube and the blacked out components, but could do without the camo paint job, at least not the normal green jungle/forest camo. I would go for a brighter color camo pattern, maybe the blue camo, or the purple/white/black, or even an orange/yellow camo.

    they should have used holy rolling darryls and had camo rim strips to go with them.

    It'd be cool if they could go a step further on the blacked out components, and have a black cassette, chain, and brake discs. A black oxided steel brake disc would be very cool, or you could go carbon ceramic. Who makes a black MTB cassette, though?

    Cogburn Outdoors CB4 Hunting Fat Bike

    So it's designed to go into the woods so you can kill something. But how do you get the dead body out of the woods? Do they make a trailer for it?

    Kinda what I was thinking. My old man inquired about using a fat bike for crow hunting - yes that's a thing, and the season duration is enormous.

    Basically it's legal to hunt in ditches, crows are smart, crows can remember the sight of his car, crows have decent hearing, and walking a long distance to cover car noise takes a long time. No bodies to carry, foxes eat 'em. His regular bike wouldn't do the job in some of the rural roads that have become sandy.

    I found it funny that he's in the exact position where hunting by fat bike makes perfect sense but he's too much of a cheapskate despite being able to afford one. His loss.

    These will never take off until someone writes about one in a country song. Let's see, what rhymes with "Cogburn"?

    Limiting the market to Scheel's initially was weird, I've never heard of them here in Pennsyltucky, but they did say just at first it'd be for Scheel's... would be good if Cabela's picked it up.

    I'd assume it's in the works...they just released a new hitch system for the trailers...

    I thought the exclusive to Scheels was interesting as well, but remember- Scheels, (A Mid-West based sporting goods big-box store chain), is watching this market of fat bikes and with a close eye, and I think they can see how it might work for hunters.

    Anecdotal to this discussion, just last week I was stopped by a guy in his 4X4 who wanted to know where he could get a fat bike like the one I was riding because he "thought it would be good for hunting." So, maybe Cogburn is "on something", or not, but apparently at least one hunter is thinking along these lines.

    Believe me I've heard all kinds of reactions. It was an interesting learning experience during my teenage years, learned all sorts of stuff about interacting with very angry people on a Sunday morning.

    I can see a lot of ice fishermen buying this thing- Riding on the lake I've been stopped by a couple ice fishermen who wanted to know "What the hell is that thing" followed by "That would be amazing for setting jigs and hauling gear!"

    Does anyone else out there have a Scheels with fat bikes? My local one carries Salsa and has the Mukluks. I am also only 80 miles south of QBP so that could have something to do with it compared to other Scheels locations.

    The Utah Scheels carries Salsa Mukluk's. I can't imagine the redneck reaction to the big tires based on all the over-compensated pickup trucks with big tires rolling around here. One thing you'll never hear a redneck say, "those tires is too big!"

    I wont raise to the bait but that was something that irritated me about the way this bike is being marketing as a vegeterian and general anti-death mountain biking kinda guy.

    Seems like a natural take off to me, wasn't there a thread a year or two ago about what uses, other than normal riding, people on here apply their fat bike to?

    Shall be interesting to see what kind of 'attachments' are developed.

    When I lived in Anchorage, it wasn't uncommon to hear of hunters who would use the pugsley (one of the few fatbikes at the time) with a Bob Trailer (with modified yoke) to hunt, as they could get further in than many ATV's options could. This is also how I know that the 70lb weight limit on the Bob Yak is more of a suggestion

    I like this...It's a great effort to get fat bikes into the hands of a new audience. Not all bikes can be spread to a whole new group of buyers like this and I hope other outdoor gear sellers take notice. We might end up with more cyclists because of the Cogburn.

    I can't wait for the first pic of someone dragging a moose out of the woods with this thing.

    THese boys already have all the sleds they need- I'd love to see a couple of these things out on the lake next year instead of the 4 wheelers.
