He calls his clip ‘Guiding the Flask’. I’m a fan of stickers and that’s probably why we’ve given so many of them away! Garrett […]

Heller Bloodhound Review by Evan LarSSon

  I arrived at the Fat-Bike.com fortress of solitude to take possession of the new Heller Bloodhound.  Heller is the newest addition to QBP’s lineup and I most graciously accepted responsibility to put it through some paces.  I squeezed the Heller into my eco-friendly compact shitbox and sped out into the Milwaukee night wondering about […]

Vee Tire 2XL Midterm Report

Through the course of late fall and early winter I have been able to put the Vee Tire 2XLs through a wide variety of conditions and I […]
