Shand fat bike in the woods

UPDATE: Now officially named the Shand Tumshie!

Today we are pleased to announce a new addition to our range of bikes built here at our workshop in Scotland. So many people have asked for a fat bike, we decided to make one – and here it is!

Some more pics over on Flickr

Due to the nature of the bike, we’ll be doing limited production runs throughout the year and can offer a full bike with the new fat bike Rohloff 500/14 XL Speedhub. If you’re interested, get in touch to place and order and we’ll let you know what the current lead time is.
