fattening up for the winter


Got into the shop today for a hot minute. Managed to throw this together. Always amazed at how fast you can build a unicrown fork, so much less work than a lugged crown. This one is for a fatbike adventurebike bikepacking rig for yours truly. A little different than the traditional fatbike. Not designed like a MTB that has really wide tires, but as touring bike with really wide tires. This may seem like a fine distinction to some people, but the differences in geometry and handling and load carrying consideration are fairly significant. Probably be working on it off and on when I have a free moment between projects throughout the winter. Hopefully to have it all ready to roll in the spring, just in time for bike touring weather.
