Sven and I are at the Interbike Outdoor Demo in Boulder City, Nevada to share what’s new for 2016! Much of our coverage will be in the form of video interviews, but to keep you all in the loop with daily coverage , we’ll be updating the site with posts directly from both the show floor and the outdoor demo! We got to ride some pretty sweet fat-bikes today and we’ll be talking about what we thought of each bike on the Weekly Dose of Fat Show that will air on Friday Morning. Till then, feast your eyes on some (fat) jewels in the desert.
Borealis Flume in High-Vis Orange looked great in the desert! This is a new aluminum-framed fat-bike with carbon fork, carbon seatpost, carbon bars and a SRAM GX 1×11 drivetrain listing for $2199. Look for more on fat-bike.com soon and check out Borealis at fatbike.com!
I took out the new Borealis Crestone and really liked it!

Wednesdays as far as the eye can see at the Surly Camp
The Original Equipment version of the Surly My Other Brother Darryl tubeless compatible rims are coming stock on the Surly Wednesday fat-bike.
Fatback’s new Skookum fat-bike is a trail-ready mountain bike that sports a more aggressive ride than a traditional snow race bike and can take on soft conditions as well as your favorite trail with equal aplomb. It sports a carbon frame, 197mm rear axle, Bluto in the front and 26×4.8″ tires.
The Skookum has an integrated downtube protector as we as chain stay protection to keep that carbon frame going for a long time.
A tribute to Fatback’s Alaskan heritage.
The Skookum has a tapered headtube too!
The new Rhino from Fatback is a sweet ride
Check out the sliding drops on the Rhino
Here’s the Ritchey Commando. A bike that we’ve been dieing to test! Sweet riding Steel goodness from the man that knows how to do it right – Tom Ritchey! We’ll be testing one very soon!
