    I love my road bike with deep carbon rims, this has that look with the deep rims and big tire, very nice!
    What seat post is that, looks like some carbon with a nice set back.

    Thanks man. I have an S-Works Venge with Enve 6.7's and wanted a Fat bike with a similar look.

    The seat post, stem and bars on the FatBoy are also Enve. Post has 25mm set back, stem is 100mm long.

    Having a great time with the build. Just waiting for those new Boomslang pedals and a carbon Phenom saddle and it will be complete.

    Looks awesome. I have a Black and Gold Fatboy and I blacked out the frame as well as the black components. I went with the LB fat rims and a Bluto fork. But yours looks incredible and weighs about a pound less than mine.

    If you were a real biker, your pants would start tight.

    Nice looking bike!

    I will admit when I read how light a bike is I add 3.5 lbs for a dropper and a Bluto. Looks like 30 is the lower limit on a bike so equipped

    Very nice!

    BUT: Flat pedals are like pie plates and spoke reflectors, they make any bike look disgraceful...

    Even though carbonLORD has been in the business longer than most of us have been alive, he is not familiar with the rules of bike photography.

    The ds crank arm should be rotated to the 3 o'clock position, and the pedal should be parallel with the crank arm. Total rookie mistake.

    That thing does look phucking tough with those deep black wheels and thick azz tires.

    Once I get my heated insoles back up and running, I may look for some blue xpdo SPDs, but for now this looks alright.

    Very nice build.

    I am curious why you would go carbon everything, but select an aluminum frame. What drew you to the Fatboy over a borealis or 907 or even Chinese carbon?

    I'm a Specialized dealer.

    I knew the rules of photography but took too long lacing up the wheels and my wife wanted me to get home to our 7 week old quickly so I snapped a quick shot.

    I'm now selling the original wheels and have a set of 300 mile used Surly Lou and Buds instead. Was asking $600 for everything with Surly black rim strips and Surly ultralight tubes but am willing to part out the tires for ya if you want them.
