    Custom fat bike by Wraith

    My friend Daren of Wraith bikes fame welded up this frame recently. I only did the expanded parking lot test ride but the short stays and slack geometry made my Pugs feel like a slug. Very impressed.

    Have you ever ridden one? I bought one before I had ever been on one taking a big chance. I am SOoo glad that I did because it is SOoo much fun. When a fat bike is described like a runnaway bus .. yup.

    That's lovely - will it take gears without chain scrub?

    It is a brilliant interpretation of a fatty...Daren builds some pretty cool stuff for sure. 'One of my favorite local builders! I hope to have him build me a SS 29er version of the 6-Fiddy someday....which I suppose would be a 9er-fiddy or something...Wraith bicycles is dedicated to building chromoly steel Full suspension bicycles for DH (down hill) trail or all mountain, custom made for the individual and not the masses.

    Nice to see something creative.
    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

    Not sure if that cog is just used as a spacer or is an option to manually change gearing if necessary. Those pics are from his maiden voyage. Daren plans to run it as a SS but a rear derailleur could be added.

    Congrats! I was hoping to have him build me a Newsboy style fat bike but he was having issues doing large diameter bends. Hopefully some day...
