2013 NAHBS: Black Sheep Fat Bike

Fat bikes were out in full force this year at NAHBS but few had the lines and attitudes of Black Sheep. I remember seeing them their first year and asking myself “who would ever want to really ride that thing?”. Turns out, fat bikes have an incredible, cult-like following and people love the creative, sexy lines of the Black Sheep fleet. Even I was amazed at how much fun it was to just ride in circles around the vacant space at the convention center. Titanium, fat and sexy. Who could ask for more?

    Hi John! It looks like the seat stays are coupled. Is that for belt drive compatibility?

        Sweet! P.S. Can you magically help me to not do things accidentally under my wife’s facebook account? I seem to be great at that lately.

        Sincerely,

        Rob not Rachel
