    My Insanely Awesome New Fatback!

    My new Ti fatback is built up and incredible. I am amazed at how awesome this bike is. I've had a Surly Pugsley for 3 years. We've recently experienced a boom in fat bike sales in Whitehorse, and I figured the timing was right to sell my bike and get something new and fancy.

    Full new bike story is on my blog.

    For those who prefer technical details, the build is as follows:

    16" Ti Fatback
    Chromag Fubar OSX in awesome green
    Chromag Ranger stem in blue
    BB7 brakes
    Blackspire pedals
    Sram X9 derailleur
    eThirteen cranks
    Hadley blue rims
    Rolling Darryl rims
    Syncros seatpost
    Green FSA headset

    My LBS is sooooooo awesome that they agreed to loan me the Rolling Darryl rims while I wait for my Kawasaki Green ones to arrive. Since then, I've sold them right off my bike - nothing like testing out a lighter bike to open your wallet.

    My rims are en route - they just take a little while longer to get all the way to Canada, eh.

    Awesome! Love the polka dots. Good to see someone having some fun with the graphics a bit.

    Wow--that is a beautiful bike. I concur with a commenter above. Normally not a fan of graphics, but well done!

    I do need a blue bash guard - or a green one. If you know of a place to find one, let me know.

    Great looking bike, needs a pair of Nates on it, they have changed my opinion of how good a snow bike can be.

    WOW!!! Tits on a Ritz!!! That is super crazy nice! I am kicking myself for not having ordered some of those Kawasaki Greenô Rolling Darryls.

    No doubt a cool bike. But between you and me - the old version had it going on. The green rims are a bit more pimping than seems proper. Love them frame dots...

    I was able to snatch up a green one for my fat front Mariachi. They look so much better in person.
