    I can finally add my bike, The Growler Bomber. Ordered way back in Dec. as a tribute to my Grandfather who flew B-24's in WWII. His plane was called The Big Opperator because he was Flight Operations Officer but spelled with 2 "P's" because the last name. 50 Emails back and forth about the design, months of labor, one big bike show, and it was finally delivered today. Thanks so much to Wheels and all the hard work he put in to this for me, as well as all the others that put in time and effort. This is one beautiful bike and I can't wait to bomb the trails, roads, and anywhere else I can find.

    I absolutely love the way this bike turned out. I love the story behind it and I love that it went to a great home that it will get used and abused in. I can't wait to see photos of Op71 crushing it when it is fully dressed with the ammo boxes.

    Wheels!

    I can't wait either. Will have to wait to get the bike back, probably be October unfortunately. It's truly an amazing machine, lite and nimble, looks great with the fat JJ tires. The art work is eye catching and as I bomb trails and get battle scars it will look even better. Thanks again Growler.

    Phd Pepper!

    Just remember to use this equation for totaling up how many bikes you need in any given household. N+1. It never gets old. Haha. Hope all is well buddy! How is Sir Fatsalot running?

    Wheels!

    I just want to give a shout-out to Willo Glynn and the crew at Growler Performance Bikes for demoing their awesome fat bikes at the 3rd Annual Genesee County Park Fat Bike Ride. The snow was deep, and the riding was tough, but everyone who was riding a Growler had a smile on their face, which is precisely what fat biking is all about. I can't say enough good things about what Growler is doing for the local community. The company even went so far as to donate a couple frames for the local mountain bike club to raffle for a fundraiser to build new singletrack in Western New York. How awesome is that?!?!

    Check out their bikes; I guarantee that you'll be hard-pressed to find a better value for the money. Thanks Willo!!

    Bodie,
    Will you be on a Growler soon?

    Much agreed, the bikes are great - great gear for an outstanding price! Willo and his crew are fantastic! Can't get better customer service anywhere!

    My son (cannondale rush) and I (trek marlin 5) test rode the Mr. Big Stuff at Loud Performance in Mayville, NY, (GREAT people there), and were very impressed- will be making the purchase within the next week or so. One question is frame size- I'm 5'11 and I'm pretty sure the bike I test rode was the medium frame- it seemed to be the right size, but I'm not sure- I'd like to add a dropper post as well.

    I am right there with you in height and I got the medium, fits like a glove. Plenty of room for all matters of height adjustment. This bike is perfect. Looking forward to seeing what you get. Plenty of action on the Growler Facebook group too.

    thanks- I think the medium is what I will do- seat post on the one I demoed was pretty low, and I still felt pretty comfortable. Will def do a dropper though-

    Son demoed the MBS in B+ and fell in love with it, guess what? He's ordering one.

    Also appears as though shipping is now free, which is fantastic.

    Willo and company at Growlerbikes have been fantastic. I can't even share all the bending over backwards and changes they allowed for me.

    ... Not many places you can get a bike with the custom paint, custom graphics, and custom build list, and free shipping.. currently......there is not a better bang for the buck around. if you are in the market, look at their specs, look at the options and the price..

    oh, and i have 26 fat carbon, 26 fat alum, 27.5+ wheelset, 29+ wheelset... and just won a pair of I9 hubs during last weeks Jake's Witch Project at Jake's Rocks in Warren, PA.... so now tempted to get a 27.5 fat wheelset... Mr. Big Stuff will certainly be spoiled, but also well used throughout all four seasons.

    As a former E-tailer, I can assure you shipping is not free. It's built in the price. If they are absorbing the shipping cost in the price without raising the price, that is a nice discount none the less.

    Oh, I know. But the MBS used to be $1900 + $150 shipping. Now it's $1900 shipped. Guessing some of the savings by going from GX11 to NX Eagle was used to offset cost. Regardless, it's still one (if not the) best bang for the buck fat bikes out there.

    Teaser pics from my son's MBS B+, the theme was the NO Saints and even the decals were custom made for him plus being "local" has its perks.
