Frame 11 – the Choad. An experimental fatbike build

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Not much for words, but here’s some photos from the latest build. It’s a total prototype.  Challenging my mind and fabricating skills to what is possible, reasonable, and rational in a bike, let alone a fatbike.  It’s what comes out on paper when two bike geeks put their heads together and brainstorm what would make a fatbike stiffer in the rear triangle but also allow for 4.5″ tires with all the complications that those things introduce (100mm BB shell and rim width, the resulting increased chainline, and a rider with exceptionally strong legs that will test this thing like no other.). This is freaking fun! More to come…
