    New Yeti Fatbike

    I present to you the new Yeti Apollo 11 (cross-posted from Yeti forum):

    Of course, it's not really a Yeti... but rather a 2014 Moonie masquerading as a circa 1991 Yeti FRO (my first real bike.) I've been on Yeti's ever since that FRO, and it seemed fitting to get a Yeti fatbike. Since it's quite unlikely that Yeti will ever go in that direction, I decided to make my own...

    Nice work, looks better than the standard Moonie by far. Enjoy.

    That's super cool!

    I was hoping to see a real Yeti though. I can't get enough of my 575.

    I haven't touched my 575 since going fat.

    Very well done. I doubt a real Yeti fat bike would be that cool. Love the Rohloff idea for fat bikes too.
