#RADBIKEOFTHEDAY: John's Fatback Ti, Bluto & D.FENDER




I've known John for a long time, and he's had good taste in bikes ever since his first MTB (which he coincidently bought off of me).   This bike is no exception,  removing the entire old build and starting over again, we started with a custom wheel build featuring Made In USA Industry 9 hubs, and Carbon fatbike rims.  SRAM XX1 seemed like the only logical build for this bike, from the Carbon Cranks to the carbon shift lever, there is plenty of plastic on this beauty.  The final nail in the coffin was the RockShox Bluto fork (with Stealth D.FENDER installed), to calm down the chunder.  John has some nice bikes that see a lot of use, cause remember if you're on the internet talking about riding, you're not riding...

44mm head tube allows for tapered forks, when used with a Chris King Inset 7. Forest, this bike is so light it doesn't make sense, I hope you do join the TI Fatbike crowd, you'll love it!!!
