We thought we’d done fat bikes from Interbike, but we found some more photos that needed airing. This time it’s the full suspension semi-fat bike on the Risse booth. The rear tyre is a ‘mere’ 3in Nokian Gazzaloddi (remember them?). Risse is going fat forks as well as continuing to make custom rear shocks…
And keeping things semi-fat, we have RSD Bikes from Canada. It’s one of the few companies that has started making bikes (from 853) for Surly’s Knard 29x3in tyres. The designer said that the company got its start because very few people were making good steel hardtails any more (in Canada) so it started making them.
