    One more titanium fat tandem:)

    Hi! We just have finished our work with titanium tandem fatbike. It's 16" and 17" size. With custom titanium sliders to fit Rohloff speedhub. Titanium fork and stoker stem. 26x4.0 Kenda Tires on Chinese 100mm carbon rims. Handlebars and seatpost are also carbon from China))) Bushnell Fat Bike Eccentric. SRAM X9 GXP Fat bike system. Shimano ZEE brakes. The whole bike weights 21.5 kilos. What do you think?) PS: I do know that you will ask about grass in the rims)))

    How does it ride. Can you give us the build run down? Any hurdles? Anything you would do different? Can you run 29er plus tires?

    Thank you for the run down. Do you sell the frame? If so how much? And how would one get one? The steering head angle appears to be really slack can that be tightened up? Say 70-71 looks like 67-69. Thank you
