Tumshie Rohloff-Fat bike

PRICE FROM: £4,545.00

Rohloff fat bike with Gates Belt Drive.

Fat bikes are fun so we decided to make one just for the hell of it. And here it is, the Tumshie!

Designed around 4.8″ tyres (the rear will take a 5″) and ultra reliable Rohloff Speedhub with Gates Carbon Belt Drive, the bike is designed to be as maintenance free as possible when rolling through snow, sand or just good ol’ Scottish mud and rocky singletrack. No more chains to lubricate or derailleurs to worry about clogging with dirt or smashing off rocks, the Tumshie will take you anywhere at any time of year.

The Paragon Polydrop rear dropouts (with integrated frame splitter for Belt Drive) and bolt on cable guides allow for fitting of other drivetrains, resulting in an extremely versatile fat bike frame to achieve the setup you want.

The Beltdrive Rohloff drivetrain allows a massive 5″ tyre on the rear for optimum traction in all conditions. The ultra reliable Rohloff internal gear hub coupled with Gates carbon belt drive, allows trouble free riding no matter what the weather throws at you-mud, snow, sand, boggy ground, no problem for the Tumshie. Just give it a quick hose down afterwards and that’s your maintenance regime complete.

Adding to the versatility of this bike is the compatibility with 29+ wheel options. Rather conveniently, the outer diameter of a 4.8″ fatbike tyre is almost exactly the same as the outer diameter of a 29+ tyre. So if you’d like the option of using some of the newer 29+ wheel/tyre combinations then the Tumshie has you covered for that too.

The Tumshie comes with our own carbon fork but is also available with a suspension fork option-please ask as we are evaluating a couple of different suspension forks.
