Fat-Ti Week! – Quiring Bike Porn

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We’ve dubbed this week as Fat dash Bike dot Com – FAT-TI WEEK! Later in the week, Sven’s going to share Kent Eriksen’s entry into the fat-bike market, but first we’d like to share an early adopter’s latest Titanium fat-bike work of art. It’s been almost 2 years since I visited Quiring Cycles at their Free Soil Michigan studio and wrote a builder profile about Scott and the amazing bicycles that he produces there. Since then, we’ve featured his bikes under the heading of fat-bling, because Scott’s craftsmanship is at the very top of the fat-bike class! This is what Scott had to say about his latest creation.

Here is a Ti fat-bike frame I made for the 100 mm rims (Lou tire) and 190 hubs.  As you know my frame design in titanium solves the “flexiness” issues some other brands have problems with, yet my frame is still lighter, stronger and tougher, than what I could build, in a similar bike done in aluminum.

Check out the shots of Scott’s welds and his unique chain stay yolk. This is a fat-bike that would be welcome in my stable of bikes, any time! Click any of the shots in the gallery to see the photo larger.

    I have 3 bike frames built by Scott. Each are a thing of beauty. I have no doubts that his fat bike frame would be fantastic. I better start saving up for one.

    Freaking gorgeous.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Scott a few months ago when I was considering having him build a fat frame for me. I ultimately did not buy one from him, but only because I got a smoking deal on something else that was in stock and I just couldn’t wait. I wished I had waited now though, no frame I have ever seen is a gorgeous as his. Stunning, hope to own one someday.

    Scott has built most of my bikes now – FAT, Tandem, MTB and Cross. Top Shelf work, great to work with, and the best painter in the business.

    I have a ti single speed built by Scott. All of his welds look like this… He is a true artisan of his craft.
