    I was really happy with that too. And a bit jealous, certainly a better frame than fatty bamboo bike, put into action by a pro. Nick Frey and James Wolf are both really nice people, to boot.

    I was lucky enough to be there too. The bikes were fantastic. I chatted with the guy from 38chainworks. He reckons the new carbon bike will be around $2400 frame and fork and the new aluminum fatty will be $1200. Awesome prices. All hand built in Idaho.

    The Black Sheep full suspension fatty was wild and the REEB singlespeeds were great. Fatty influence was everywhere this year.

    I've only seen a few pics of the Retrotec 29+, a sweet bike that despite being voted best MTB went under the radar of the instant post to Flickr crowd.

    Was really impressed at the Porcelain Rocket bags.

    The Moots Trail Maintenance bike was cool.

    NonFat but ran into Andy Hampsten and he graciously signed a jersey at the show.

    Not strictly fat, but affable Minneapolis carbon guy Matt Appleman made a Knardly carbon bike, of which I hadn't seen coverage until today.

    This one is a fatty too, I just brought the frame in an attempt to dodge the oversized charge at the airport.

    I really want to know the price of their new SnoWhite hubs with the cool matte grey color. They said specs would be up on the whiteind.com website in two weeks.
