for the fat bike lovers 8)

a french framebuilder in the making : "salamandre" :D

he should be able to build his first frames soon

see his "draft frame" on his blog but specifically, the tooling he is building himself to allow for an easy and reliable process :idea:

there is a table with frames prices down the blog
page maybe a bit tricky to load

780 euros bare frame for derailleur (tyres 26x3,8 max)
900 euros for rohloff or singlespeed
he is also planning a "big fat bike" but only with mech at 780 (tyres up to 26x5)

what is striking is that the framebuilder is very practical , so tries to design taking practicality in account (BB issues - rear hub issues -cost of parts issues)
He is also amazed at the ability of a fat bike for mtb use (not only sand and snow) :idea: 8)
