Reader’s Ride(s) – Chris Daisy’s Borealis – 24.9 lbs of Mayhem


Chris Daisy owns Zion Cyclery and knew he wanted a Borealis Yampa carbon fat-bike the moment he saw it and so put in a preorder for the frame, set about getting the parts together and this is the result. A man of few words, Chris had the following to say about his 24.9 lb creation:

About Me: I have three knife-attack scars and two gold teeth. This is my ride.

Right on, Chris!








Do you have a fat-bike that you are passionate about, makes your life better and that you think our readers would dig hearing about? Shoot me a note to and we will check it out.

    must keep clean must keep clean must keep clean. That’s all that would be running through my head. Some bikes are just too beautiful… now throw that baby in the mud.

    I’ve only got one 2 accidental knife scars and one gold tooth. I feel so inadequate.

    I am amazed at the progression we are seeing. “Light” is being shown on the whole Fat Bike community. I am excited to see where we are in 3 Years!

    The rims look like Schlick Northpaws. Great 47mm rim for trail riding. Mine have seen lots of abuse and are holding up great!

      Thanks! They are, indeed, Northpaw-S rims. We’ve been getting a lot of positive reports on the rims. Thanks again for yours!

    Those are pretty cool pics, but they still don’t do that bike justice. It’s THAT sick!

    Too awesome to be awesome!

    One minor crash and a few frame scratches so far. I just try not to think about it.

    But light and fat is where it’s at! So cool that we’ve move so far so fast. Full Fat, Full Carbon, Full Suspension is just around the corner…Sell your car!

    Ok usually I’d bitch about a carbon fatbike (and have in the past). Because it IS in fairness kind of an oxymoron. But this IS cool. *slow clap*

    Fantastic! Pity that in Italy will not come!
