Custom Fat-bike Rim Vinyl

We’ve been messing about with custom-cut Vinyl from our buddy Corey to enhance fat-bike rims and personalize your ride.

This Pugsley was built to showcase the rims and so we could get some good photos of the concept and to test the durability. More on the long-term prospects down the road.

This is still largely an exercise in play but we are working on how to make this a DIY-type project. Meanwhile, if you have a friend with a Vinyl cutter and have mucked about yourself, send over some pix to info@fat-bike.com and let us see what you are up to!

Here are a few more rims that were mocked up in the initial phase.

    and can you do it with cut-out rims?

    so can you apply these to a lced wheel or do you apply before lacing?

    Woodgrain – LOVE! I need that for the Large Marges on my Big Woody!

    Elvis and Sean! Before lacing is the only way to go for this idea and yes, it is possible to do cutouts. We used Fat Shebas because this was an experiment and they are A LOT less expensive than more modern fat-bike rims. Mostly, this depends on the skill of the vinyl guy!

    I’ve messed with a lot of vinyl in my day… This looks fun.

    I’ve got a carbon fiber “look” product here that would last absolutely forever.

    Personally though, I like the stealth look and no added weight (I know it’s hardly any).

    I’m thinking the snowflakes would look hot on my spare wheelset (GFS) loaded with Dillingers.

    Those are awesome. If your buddy ever starts selling these I’d probably be in on a set!
