2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert 6Fattie DEMO!

The leaves are starting to change color and that means 2016 bikes are here! We are updating our demo and rental fleet with some of the newest offerings from Specialized and Giant – our latest addition is the full suspension carbon fiber 6Fattie. With bike parts like meaty Purgatory Control 650b x 3.0″ tires and FOX suspension, our expert level 6Fattie gives you consistent traction to crush those steep, rocky climbs and the confidence to send it down the most technical terrain. Check out the full post for all the details!

6Fattie

2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert 6Fattie (Large) – now available to demo!

The most notable feature of the brand new 6Fattie are the bigger and badder 3 inch wide tires. This not-quite fat bike width gives you much more traction and flotation than typical 2.0-2.3″ mountain tires. The tubeless-ready tires are mounted to 650b (27.5″) rims which result in an outside tire diameter that is very close to a 29er. In order to handle the big tires while still keeping the wheels stiff and responsive, Specialized equipped the 6Fattie with hubs featuring new boost spacing.

In addition to the plus size rubber, our expert level demo bike features a FACT 9m carbon fiber frame, FOX Float Factory DPS shock, FOX 34 Plus Performance Elite fork, Shimano XT brakes, 1×11 SRAM X01/X1 drivetrain, and Specialized Command Post IRcc dropper seatpost. Stop by Peak Cycles in Golden, CO to take it for a spin or check out all of the specs HERE.
