Needless to say we’re pretty excited to be Northern Michigan's stocking dealer of the Borealis Yampa fat bike. The Yampa is available now and those who have gotten to ride this elusive beast have raved about it. The best material to build bicycles-carbon fiber-has reached the fat bike world in a big way. The frame utilizes all the strengths of this material: lightweight, lateral stiffness, and the ability to shape tubes to perfection. This frame is extremely lightweight, and has every feature that a fat bike needs to become anything you can imagine. Borealis has included 3 bottle cage mounts for those that enjoy staying hydrated for the super-endurance rides, and rear rack mounts as well to make carrying your gear easy. The Yampa features the new fat-bike-standard 190mm centered rear spacing and has clearance for the largest fat tire and rim setup out there and a 2x10 drivetrain, with room for extra mud and snow that you’re bound to ride through. The Yampa’s seatstay design allows the frame to flex vertically just the right amount for an extremely comfortable ride, while the massive bottom bracket and chainstays allow for lateral stiffness that will blow you away (or your riding buddies) when you get out of the saddle to accelerate. The tapered headtube combined with the Borealis FF1 tapered fork and 15mm thru axle make front-end handling like nothing you’ve felt on a fat bike before and will make weaving through tight singletrack a breeze. With all the massive improvements in fat bike design happening throughout the industry in the last few years, we’re confident the Yampa will be something that will blow you away, a truly other worldly creation for adventure junkies and racers alike that will feel right at home wherever you decide to take it. To summarize: - 190mm Rear Spacing - 100mm BB Shell - Standard rear rack mounts for cargo racks - Tapered Head Tube - Internal Cable routing - 3 water bottle mounts - Clearance for 100mm rims and 4.8" tires - Sweet Racing Stripes in RED or WHITE - Lightweight: 1270 gram frame (We only post actual weights- This is a size Medium frame that is fully painted, finished, and includes derailleur hangar.) We have demos to try in the store!
By now you probably know that Pugsley was created to go where so-called “all terrain” bikes flounder. The floatation and traction afforded by large-volume, low-pressure tires can get you over and through otherwise un-rideable terrain…sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice and dense or packed snow. The Pugsley frame features 135mm-spaced horizontal rear-loading dropouts with a derailleur hanger. The stays are offset 17.5mm to accommodate a derailleured drivetrain, an internally-geared hub or a single speed or even fixed gear drivetrain and never worry about chain-on-tire rub. Pugsley is available as a frameset and as a complete bike. The frame will accept tires up to 3.8? wide. The fork is a 135mm-spaced symmetric version with extra cage mounts on each leg and room for a 4.8” tire if you should choose to go even bigger up front. If you want to be able to swap front and rear wheels, get an offset Moonlander fork. This can be pretty handy in extreme temperature and physical conditions if, say, your freehub body were to seize up in the middle of nowhere at -50°F. Our standard Pugsley complete bike sports a nice mix of components chosen for their durability and value. We’ve given it Nate 3.8” tires on 65mm Marge Lite rims, Microshift thumb shifters, which work well especially when wearing mittens and Avid BB7 cable disc brakes (totally black). This is a solid kit that will serve you well wherever you go. Pugsley is offered in sizes XS (about 14?) to XL (about 22?) and comes in all black or black and blue.

And, the Maxi keeps a wide range of gears at your fingertips with a trustworthy SRAM X5 20-speed drivetrain. When your monster truck of a bike needs some help slowing down, call on a pair of Promax disc brakes to deliver sure stopping power. There is a reason why fat bikes have surged to recent popularity. Find out for yourself why everyone is going fat on the Maxi 1.
One part fat bike, one part 29er, and two parts awesome, Surly's Krampus rolls fast, holds speed, and devours corners. Surly built the frame and fork with chromoly and gave the frame a long top tube and short chainstays, so it's playful, smooth, versatile, and durable. The 29 x 3-inch Knard tires on 50mm Surly Rabbit Hole rims are what make this bike truly special. These big tires offer increased traction, incredible float, and reduce the need for suspension because the large volume is plenty to smooth the trail. You'll also get a Shimano Zee single-ring crankset, a Shimano rear derailleur for crisp shifts, and Avid BB7 brakes to give this guy some trail manners.
