    Kermode Spirit Bear Carbon Fatbike

    Anyone heard of these guys before?

    Kermode Carbon Fatbikes

    I came across one for sale on Pinkbike and had to have a look (Google).

    Not my ad, but more pics:

    Looks like it's the same idea as Lamere (and others), I'm assuming it's Chinese Carbon rebranded? Which frameset does it look like to you guys?

    Well according to their site the thing that makes them unique is that they use carbon fiber and white paint.

    I'm putting my vote in the rebranded Chinese carbon box.

    Good friend of mine went on av demo ride with, likely that exact bike, a few weeks ago. It is a Fm 190 frame with next cockpit, and xt groupset. Handles fine, but the hubs are novatech, and the build quality was poor.

    Sounds like a cross between a frog and a toilet.

    that's disappointing to hear about an almost $5000 CAD bike.

    It is hard for me to envision a scenario that has me purchasing that bike.
