Over on Plusbikes.com They’re testing a Maskinen Prodigy R1 B+ with a sweet set of  Maskinen Revolvek carbon 27.5+ wheels. We didn’t want to be outdone by those plus bike nerds, so we worked with our amigo, Miguel E. Antonetti, to gather photos and data, for a report about Maskinen’s Prodigy R1 –  Full Carbon Fat-Bike. Check out the clean lines, that the Danes get to enjoy on this fett sykkel!

As the bike appears in the photos, she’s at 10.5 kg (23.15 lbs) without the pedals… Miguel told us “it could be lighter. We go for performance first and weight second (like big brake rotors, for example)”.

Miguel – Maskinen is a new brand, but I am an old bike freak… I’ve been hooked since my first bike in 1970, at the age of three. No asphalt, but passionate about the dirt. Then came BMX racing in the 80’s, and mtb since 1990. I love bicycles at a level that (only) a very few do… for some reason.

Miguel -Fatbike and plusbike…We’re focused on big-size-tires, period. I personally believe that the tires volume factor is one of the most critical features of a dirt bike. Fatbikes came (on the scene) and proved it.
