It may not be the fastest or most agile bike on the market, but this fatty is hardy. Resilient. A trusty draft horse that can plow through winter weather even if it feels a little slow and lumbering along the way. Budnitz's limited edition FTB fat bike fits a handmade titanium cantilever frame with 3.8" tires, a carbon belt drive, and a 14-speed Rohloff Speedhub for two-wheeled commuting and exploration all year long.

Sure, the FTB is chunky, but that doesn't mean it's out of shape. Budnitz has designed its bike to plow over curbs, down flights of stairs, through deep potholes, and along surfaces ranging from muddy trails to sandy beaches to snowy streets. The release's titanium frame weighs less than 4 pounds and its mechanical components sync to provide a 525% gear range.

As you might expect, FTB ownership is going to cost you. In addition to the bike's limited availability, the material and workmanship quality Budnitz heralds in their products place this fat tire rider at a selling price of $7,000.

Maybe I'll just wait until summer comes back and I can resume commuting and touring on my adult-sized big wheel.
