Like your bikes a little different? Do you still have 3/4 length ripped jeans from your teens at the back of the closet? Well meet Sick Bicycles, an emerging bike brand from the UK building bikes at the extreme fringes of the spectrum.
The Fatback Corvus is fast and competent on everything from rocky, dry trails to groomed snow conditions. Designed to dominate the Iditarod Trail Invitational, this is a great fat bike for even a recreational rider.
Intense has just released their new Sniper mountain bike in both XC and Trail configurations. The Trail model is slightly slacker than the XC model and features 20mm more suspension travel--120mm vs 100mm. The XC version, on the other hand, is available in more build kits, soaring up to $8,499 MSRP.
Terrene's McFly plus tire is available for both 27.5+ and 29+ wheels and in two different casing weights. It's burly enough for technical descending, yet fast-rolling enough for long days in the saddle.
