Spam pass here.​

Very rare and absolutely one-of-a-kind bike.






Size medium. Built new mid-winter, ridden a few (maybe a dozen?) times. The customer I built it for was hoping that this bike would do the job of a fatbike in winter, and trailbike in summer.

As anyone that's ridden one knows, only fat does the job of fat on true over-snow conditions.



Rock Shox Revelation 140mm travel thru-axle fork has had some millwork done to gain clearance between the tire and the arch.



Above is the remote for the fork lockout. 10 speed SRAM twister moves an X9 short cage clutched der. Hayes Prime Comp brakes.



Above is the dropper remote for a 125mm Rock Shox Reverb.



X.0 carbon cranks with a 28t XX1 wide/narrow ring, mated to a X.0 10-speed 11/36 cassette with a SRAM 10-speed chain.



Monarch RT3 in 200 x 57 gives you 140mm of rear travel.



Fork is the XX model. Headset = Gravity cartridge bearing unit.



Velocity P35 rims shod with Surly Knard 29 x 3" tires. Spokes are DT Swiss Revolution black, with one white DT spoke for flair.



6" rotors on both ends.

As new this is a $5700 bike. Selling it now for $4225. Damn near perfect condition, as obvious from the above pics.

Pedals not included.

The above price assumes local pickup.

Want it shipped to the lower 48? Sure--figure roughly $150 for packing/shipping via Fed Ex Ground.

Can be seen/test ridden in Grand Junction, Colorado. Please email in advance to arrange an appointment:

Funny that they wanted it to do it's best to fill fatty duties, but didn't put the widest of an admittedly much narrower rim selection on, people are strange......

Great looking bike, some lucky duck is going to be very happy. Love mine, can't wait for the snow to melt, as I haven't ridden it in months!

Will have an L for sale in a ~week or so.
I actually wanted one of those pretty bad. Thing that stopped me was I called Sram and asked if there may be a Pike or something similar that would accommodate 29+. They said no. If I were to build one of these, I'd truly want Rabbit Holes front and rear. No compromises. Now I'm either going with a Lunchbox or a Rip9.

I assume you know that the Lefty SuperMax has room to spare for a RH/Knard. If not, now you do!

She wanted the same wheels year round, with just a tire swap. RH's are too wide with summer XC tires, sooooo....

Got it. Yep, see that with guys who want one do it all rig for road too, makes ya nuts trying to convince them they won't be happy, ah well.....

NYrr, sure, stop on by any time you're in the 'hood and take it for a spin. Do check my hours though, as they changed this Spring!
