Fat/Plus Bikes

 

We've been building, riding, and customizing fat bikes since the Surly Pugsley frameset became available in 2005. Since then we've stayed ahead of the curve by offering the best selection in excellent-performance fat bikes by working with Salsa Cycles and Surly Bikes. These are the brands driving the fat bike category and blazing the trail for others to follow.

We've enjoyed watching fat bikes go from seasonal toys to year-round overland adventure machines. While fat bikes have plowed into the mainstream, mid-fat and plus bikes have followed in suit. We love setting people up for off-road adventures.

 


Salsa Beargrease Carbon NX1, $1,999

The Beargrease does a lot of things well, but it does speed best. Lightweight, agile, and elegant, with all excesses removed, the Beargrease will happily dispel the myth that fat bikes are slow. Fly through summer singletrack or blast out winter powder laps. Beargrease is your best bet for getting from point A to point B fast, all year, over whatever terrain stands between. Full specifications.


Salsa Mukluk NX1, $1,799

The Mukluk is Salsa’s exploration fat bike, designed and engineered to excel in the wide variety of conditions fat bikers face. Its 197mm rear spacing accommodates 5” tires, and a 100mm threaded bottom bracket allows a wide range of crank choices. Go singlespeed or geared, rigid or suspended out front, or make use of the stealthy and integrated Alternator Rack/Rack-Lock systems for added carrying capacity via traditional racks & panniers. Dream boldly. The Mukluk won’t back down. All Mukluks feature Alternator dropouts, allowing for singlespeed or geared setups. Full specifications.

 


Surly Wednesday, $1,499

The Wednesday is Surly's all-terrain fat bike. The frame features trail-ready geometry, 4.6" of tire clearance, provides lots of cargo carrying capabilities and is paired with a 100mm suspension corrected fork. The Wednesday’s geometry is spry enough to get you through techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish on terrain-crawling stuff. Surly gave it all the necessary braze-ons and mounts for whatever accoutrements you feel necessary in your travels. In the dropout department, the Wednesday uses a cast steel, rear-facing, slotted dropout that can exit either rearward or vertically. They’re compatible with either 10mm or 12mm axles and are spaced at 170/177mm. In the full-forward, short chainstay position you can run 26 x 3.8˝ tires on 80mm rims and in the full-rearward, longer chainstay position you get the option of 26 x 4.6˝ tires on an 80mm rim. Full specifications.
