Fat-bottomed bikes make the riding world go ’round
Based in Périgueux, consumer-direct brand Skyde has just sent the details on their new (as-yet unnamed) titanium fat bike. Welded of double-butted 3/2.5 Ti in Taiwan, the tubing is chosen, frames are designed, and details ironed out in France. At least in pictures, Skyde seems to have pulled together a well thought-out frame with some nice details.
Weight for the frame is said to be 1,665g while the fork hits the scales at 700g. As with all Skyde Ti frames, the warranty runs five years. Pricing (without VAT) is 1,540€/£1,290 for the frame, 300€/£250 for the fork.
