Reader’s Ride(s) – Robert’s Fatback


Robert recently sent us an email saying he would love to see his ride featured on our site. Thanks, Robert! Here you go!

Robert says – “It surely isn’t the sweetest Fat Bike every built but it is mine and I am gonna ride the HELL out of it. I currently live in NJ and for those that don’t realize, the riding out here is as good as anywhere. Sure, the climbs aren’t massive but they are big enough to keep you honest. One of the reasons for the build was to use this on beach but considering how nice it is I don’t know if that is gonna happen. Probably gonna be strictly dirt and build another with an internal hub and stuff I have layin around for the beach. Fattys Forever!”

Here are the Bits of it:

  • Fatback 20in frame
