Mike is the designer of the bikes and they are made in China. Mike has worked with 3 manufacturers to find the right one. The quality of the welding was top notch. He also has a carbon fork made to his design and the whole package was awesome.
The fat bike with the next carbon rims is 10.1kg ready to roll.
The track is very smooth with man made rock features so nothing to really tax the bike, but it climbed like a rocket and had a awesome trail based geometry.
Current frame price is 1400 ukp. Good value I think, better if our dollar was not out the ass.
