Most Affordable Carbon Fat Bikes available, and according to Bike Rumor, also the lightest! Custom built bikes at prices 25% lower than bike shops

We proudly offer the world's lightest and most-affordable carbon fat racing bikes built one at a time here in Minneapolis, exactly how our customers around the world want them, and always at a price about 25% less than the bike shop.


A true carbon fat bike pioneer, we have tweaked the frame design slightly over time to make it light, agile, fast and comfortable. Our steep 70.5 HT angle makes for a quick and responsive handling bike, while the slightly longer 467mm chainstays give you great stand-up-and-hammer traction on the hills, more stable high handling, and better bump absorption.


We have both 177mm and 197mm rear end spaced frames, both of which can fit 5" tires and big 27.5 sized fat wheels.

Here are some sample kits below. But call us directly to customize exactly what you want!

* All the above weights are with wimpy HuskerDu tires, so add a pound to each build weight with real winter tread.
