French frame builder Skyde has shown us some pretty interesting things in the past, like a custom titanium front end built around your choice of suspension design and an internally geared, belt driven hardtail. Now, he’s dropped the Fat Bottom, a titanium fat bike with matching fork.
Builder Ronnie Calvet says the frame is just 1,665 grams, and the fork is 700 grams. It’s fabricated from 3/2.5 double butted titanium and built around 170mm rear spacing. Roll past the break for more pics and specs…
Massive 125mm tire clearance front and rear.
And that clearance is with a fairly tight 440mm 17.3″ chainstay length, which should make for snappy handling. The requisite rack mounts are found on the seatstays, but the fork is left clean. We’re thinking this is more your race fat bike…but he’ll build anything custom to your liking, too.
100mm threaded bottom bracket shell.
Post mount rear brakes and beautiful welds.
UPDATE: Retail is $1,990 for the frame and $400 for the fork, in USD. Frames are full custom only.
