When we first got wind of the new Fatback Skookum and Rhino fat bikes, the announcement was shown with computer renderings. Just a few weeks later at Interbike though, Fatback’s latest fat bikes were the real deal.
Offering a carbon fat bike that is suspension compatible as well as an aluminum model with a sliding dropout, Fatback is gearing up for winter with some cool new rides…
Shown in two colors, up close we get to see a lot of the little details including an integrated downtube protector.
Tire clearance with a Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 4.8 on a DT Swiss BR710 rim is tight, but adequate. Built with a 197×12 rear thru axle, the frame sticks with a threaded bottom bracket.
If green and blue isn’t your thing, the second color option of red black and white was looking classy.
Rhino, the second bike on display, is Fatback’s new aluminum workhorse that is also suspension corrected. The frame is built with a sliding dropout which will allow for adjustments in chain stay length or single speed use, but the frame is not belt drive compatible.
