2014 Specialized Fatboy Expert

January 13, 2014

Judging by the snow piling up against my window as I type this, it’s safe to say that winter is in full-swing here in Colorado.  There’s no need to let the snow keep you from riding, though – come in and check out our latest fatbike arrival, the Specialized Fatboy Expert.  A nicer spec than the base model Fatboy, the expert level Fatboy offers unparalleled performance in snow, ice and otherwise nasty conditions. So get off the rollers, get out of the gym and come see the features and bike parts that leave us drooling over this fat-tired offering from the big-S!  Snow biking is here to stay, are you gonna be left out of this fun ride?

2014 Specialized Fatboy

December 9, 2013

Never one to be left out of all the fun, Specialized has joined Trek and many small brands in debuting a fatbike for the 2013/2014 winter.  However, unlike Trek and many other brands, the Fatboy is mass produced in great numbers and available world-wide.  With a carbon fork, press-fit bottom bracket and Sram 2×10 drivetrain, the Fatboy is definitely one of the more race-ready fatbikes available.  The Fatboy also shares the same geometry as the legendary Specialized Stumpjumper, the first and longest mass-produced mountain bike in the world.  Not just for racers, though, the frame has rear rack mounts for long rides and multi-day fun!

We’ve got a Fatboy in the shop just in time for winter here in Golden.  Jump past the break to see what bike parts and features make this fatbike stand out from the rest!
