Hot News from the Winter Bike Expo in Minneapolis!
Kevin Ishang., owner of Freewheel Bike, announced the founding of a new fat-bike company called appropriately, the Minneapolis Bike Company. We were then treated to the unveiling of their new, fresh from the skunk works ‘Murphy’ full carbon Fat-Bike prototype.
The Murphy features raised chainstays coupled with a standard width MTB bottom bracket shell that allows the bike to run Sram’s XX1 drive train as well as any number of drive train options like, belt drive. The Murphy has a 170R – 135 F hub spacing. The proto came in weighing 27pounds and Kevin thinks they can shave a full pound off of that on their production frames. The price for the new carbon frame will be $2,400 and it will be manufactured right in MPLS, MN.
