Dream bike: Custom Stedman's Specialized Fatboy

Project Fat: Part One- The Concept

Fat Fever: those two words probably best describe the atmosphere at the shop over the past few months.  Traditionally, winter is quiet at Stedman’s. Lately though we’ve been busy building, selling and riding fat bikes. Big frames and knobby tires are everywhere, and we’re quickly becoming one of Rhode Island’s best places for all things fat.

The question is…why?

I think there are a few reasons.

First: You can take them anywhere. No seriously, anywhere. Sandy beaches, technical single track, snowmobile trails, plowed roads, even frozen ponds. Name another type of bicycle that can do all of those equally as well?

Second: Stability. Four and Five inch tires running at 8psi will roll over nearly anything with unreal stability. We’ve had several customers trade in their traditional mountain bikes for fatties simply because they feel safer and more confident due to these easy-rolling big tires.

Third: They’re different.  Many people have bikes but fat bikes are still a bit of an oddity and easily in the minority at most Sunday group rides. But that’s part of what makes them cool. Whether on the shop sidewalk or trailside parking lot you’re almost guaranteed to have somebody come up to you asking what it’s all about. If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd this could be your ticket.

 

To celebrate our collective Fat Fever, we decided to do something special. We’ve never had a bike painted in Stedman colors so it only seemed appropriate that this would be the perfect opportunity. A Specialized Fatboy frame set was chosen and colors were picked out. After going back and forth on a few different ideas someone suggested using the shop jersey as inspiration and painting the front half blue and the back half silver, with a STEDMAN’S banner connecting the two. And what frame would be complete without a head tube badge? Credit goes to Jim for the idea of a true ‘head’ tube badge of Everett Stedman’s face. Check out the process below.

Tons of credit goes to Ricky ‘Wacko’ Legault for painting the frame and putting in countless hours to bring this idea to reality. It turned out better than even we could have ever imagined and we can’t wait to take it for a ride!

Coming up: The build. 1x was a no brainer but SRAM or Shimano? 10spd or 11spd? Custom wheels or prebuilt? Carbon cockpit or alloy? Rigid or suspension fork? Stay tuned…
