In what’s starting to become a common story line, within the Rocky Mountain Bicycle office they were a little skeptical about the incoming storm of fat bikes. That skepticism continued as the design for Blizzard fat bike started to appear around the office. Apparently Wade Simmons was on board immediately saying, “everyone thinks they’re so f*cking cool and serious, but it’s really just about having fun on your bike.”
After more of their test riders started to enjoy their testing of the Blizzard more and more, they came up with the concept for Fat Free. Can you freeride a fat bike? After doing some experimenting in British Columbia’s coastal mountains, the answer was clear.
“If it was ever even a question, the answer is yes. You can and should freeride a fat bike.”
