Bikerumor Pic Of The Day: Fat Bike, Not Snow Bike :)

bikerumor pic of the day vertigo fat bike

Photo submitted by Ricky deLeyos, “I’ve been riding my Vertigo Cycles titanium fat bike since April, and I hardly spend any time atop the rest of my quiver anymore. The builder, Sean Chaney, designed it nimble, so it rides light and quick. I love it!”

That’s a sweet looking ride.

You better lock that bad boy up if your ever in the Hood, some rat would love it. Yeah, its pretty sweet.
Is the long seat post flexy at all?

Lovely looking ride.

I too wonder about that seat post, it may not be but it looks floppy. Finally if this bike is ridden on 90% + asphalt, schwalabe marathon supremes & maybe a bigger chainring would allow for more speed.

Longest seatpost ever! Cool bike

Awesomely amazing super gorgeous looking bike! I’m not much into fat bikes, but this one rules supreme! Kudos to the builder and thanks for publishing this picture.

Saw one of these by Surly at REI in Seattle this week. Couldn’t find the weight in any of the material, not the catalog, not the website, not the pamphlet on the stand. So what does that thing weigh?

Nice Blacksheep clone!

One of my all-time favorite bikes. Ricky detailed the build over at MTBR.

@LoRider: Definitely not a sidewalk cruiser:

@Lance: Not a clone. That’s a Black Sheep fork he’s got on there. The frame is nothing like anything Black Sheep sells.

…is that a Black Sheep clone?, my first thought was Jeff Jones.

Rickyd - 09/22/12 - 2:32pm

The fork is a black sheep but the frame is a vertigo. This frame is totally unlike any black sheep I’ve ever seen, e.g., my short 417mm chainstays :)

Looks like the perfect rig for cruising the multi use trails. You ever thought of taking it off road?

Nice Jeff Jones fork!!
The frame though has a nice and crisp stance!
It just want play!!
Respect to the builder!
