Vibe Cycles out in Boise Idaho first popped up on our fat-bike radar with a bamboo fatty that was spied at the North American Hand Built Bicycle Show last March. Dave and Christi, from Vibe, have been keeping in touch, with us, and contacted me a few weeks ago, about their new custom hydro-formed aluminum fat-bike, called….the Frigid Bitch. In addition to the new Aluminum frame, Vibe has a steel fatty currently in production for a local racer and they hope to have a titanium fat-bike at this year’s North American Hand Built Bicycle Show in Denver.
Here are a few details -
- Base price $1450
- Delivery Time 8-10 weeks
- American Made, all custom measured and built to each clients measurements and requests.
- If you only want to run a 4″ tire – great, if you need to fit “Clown Shoes” and 5″ Tires – No problemo – Just have to tell them ‘up-front’.
- Standard on all frames: 44mm ID Headtube, rear hub 170mm, 2 bottle mounts, rack mounts, head badge, powder coating (stock colors), cutout snowflake rear blinky, flask and flask holder.
- The Frigid Bitch is available as a frame or Vibe can put your dream build kit together as a complete bike.
