Borealis bikes have come a long way since they first popped onto our radar back in 2013. In just their second bike released to the public, they managed to create a frame that I felt was so good after my review, that I ended up buying one for myself. Over the past two years we’ve gotten to know that Borealis crew quite well, especially co-founder Adam Miller, which is why we were bummed to hear he and Borealis are parting ways. Hopefully this just means that Adam will bring his talents to another new or established company in the future.
Press release after the break…
After over two years of designing, distributing, demo-ing, and riding the fastest, lightest, coolest fat bikes on the planet, Adam Miller has sold his ownership interest in Borealis Bikes and The Fat Bike Company to seek new adventures.
“It’s been a fantastic experience, and after founding this company a little over two years ago, I never imagined that it could have grown to what it has become today. I had what seemed like a small idea to make some really cool, unique, carbon fat bikes, and in the last two years I have seen that become not just a reality, but a true success. I developed the Borealis Yampa and Echo fat bikes, carbon and aluminum rims, and various parts and accessories. Starting this company and creating these bikes has given me the chance to meet the most incredible and passionate group of people with crazy great attitudes about life and about being on the cutting edge. With Borealis, I’ve always tried to carry that fun attitude and edginess through in developing our products and our brand and I think I’ve managed to make our bikes and parts reflect that fun, while maintaining top-notch quality,” he said. “And the people I’ve connected with across the bike industry, whether they’re focused on new product design, supplying components to us, demo-ing their bikes at a show near us, racing on our bikes or other brands—these people have made starting and operating this company just awesome,” Adam said.
Last week, Adam sold his half of the company to his former business partner. “I’ve loved this company. I’m thrilled I made these bikes. Now, I can’t wait to put my experience to work and test some new ideas in other parts of the bike industry. Thanks to everyone for the ride so far!”
