With all the snow we normally get throughout a Vermont winter, I made the decision last year that I wanted to get a fat bike. While I don’t own one yet, I’m pretty sure I want either a Surly Neck Romancer or a Salsa Mukluk; that is of course, once I gather the funds. So with all my excitement about the possibility of riding trails this winter, I came up on these photos of a nicely outfitted Neck Romancer from Shinya Suzaki. This beast is outfitted with various Tree Bicycle Co bmx parts including a three-piece crankset, bmx stem and saddle in addition to the Alfine 8 internally-geared setup. While the bmx bits may or may not jive with you, you gotta give a nod to the creativity. My only issue is the front and rear tires being on their respective front and rear wheels…(oops). See the rest below.
