    Last Frontier FatBike

    Just finished the girlfriend's new FatBike. Kinda went for an Alaska theme on this one. It went together pretty well, the hardest part was melting the gold dust onto the rims. We took her for the inaugeral voyage in 4 inches of new snow on the (what else?) Gold Mint Trail in Hatcher Pass on Sunday. Some of you may be happy to know I am now officially off work for the winter and back in production.

    Yep, a small (15"). Julia is 5"4". I am expecting a couple XS 13" frames in any day which have curved top tubes for more clearance for smaller people.

    Now you did it!

    Everything is now up for sale! I have got to have a Wildfire.
    I have been looking at the bike collection the other day, wondering which should go. After seeing your wife's bike and knowing you'll have some 13ers... it's all going (except the Municycle.)

    Post some pics of the 13in frames when you get them please.

    Bling! Hope she has a grille to match the rims.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Dang it Mark, what are ya trying to do bankrupt me? Its not enough that I ordered a frame from you, nooo now you gotta go and make a tiny frame that sounds like it will fit my wife. I mean so few bikes even fit her, let alone super cool winter bikes. (sigh) Thanks a lot...

    It'd be too dang embarassing having to tell her to wait for you all the time. Light people floot sooo well in the snow on the big wheels it just ain't right. It's kind of ironic that one of the original advantages to the big wheels was that they were the great equalizer for bigger people and now small people are getting ahold of them.

    Carl, sticking with the 135 for the time being, 'cept on the ti model. How's Germany treating you?

    Mark, what is the scoop on the Ti model? Does it use a 150mm rear? 100mm BB? Is it currently being made?

    Here's the first and only one so far. Mike DeSalvo, who also builds the Wildfire frames, made this one. It's got non-offset 135mm spacing for the Rohloff hub and a 100 mm bb shell but we are planning to do 150 spacing on the non-Rohloff version. Ti frame, steel fork. c. $2500.
