That one is a perth local and pimped up with a red rohloff and red rotors. Full rack points and water bottle points on the fork.


Muru Finke - Ran into this guy a couple of weekends ago at the Mundaring Weir Hotel Carpark , Brendan. Rather a nice bike to say the least, dgood geometry, nice finish, plenty of mounting options. A few of my mates and I are looking at buying them after seeing this bike - no association, just really impressed with the bike and the feedback on service.

http://www.murucycles.com/ Wayne is pricing me up a build kit now, for the Wirtjana V2 with XT, 65mm Marge Lite rims, Thomson Post/Stem and a Suspension Fork. Will eat up sand and gravel for brekky ;-)

Wont be going the rack route though, frame bags are a smarter way to go, and these guy are a couple of fatbike owners who make em to suit. Once Again no association, but the way I will be going - save the Ortliebs for the on-road stuff.

No chance it will be ready for our Munda Biddi run in a week and a half though.

I have an order in for the Specialized Fat Boy. Hoping it's here by the end of the year.

I am also planning on making my own frame bags.

Just waiting for a velomobile shell now, your very own Fat Trike

more on Bikerumor.
Although it is tempting to pop into Walmart on the way home and pick up one of their 20" fat bikes

I believe a combination of frame backs and racks are smarter...

Surprised to see a Surly Mukluk in the window of Epic Cycles in Bardon when I visited yesterday.
