Fat Tire Farm-Portland's Premier Mountain Bike Shop

The Pacific Northwest's Premiere Mountain Bike Shop

Fat Tire Farm is the premiere mountain bike shop in the Pacific Northwest.

We carry Santa Cruz, Yeti, Ibis, Juliana, Orbea, Devinci, Deity, Specialized, and Rocky Mountain. 

The Farm has expert mechanics who can service and repair any bike, or build the custom bike of your dreams.

Yonder Journal AWOL

Kyle dropped off the Yonder Journal fleet of AWOLs to be rebuilt for their next adventure.  These are some sick off-road touring bikes.  Stay tuned for more rad stories and adventures here: http://yonderjournal.com/

Cotic Soul 27.5

We recently brought Cotic Bikes into the Farm.  Cotic makes steel hardtail trail bikes with modern geometry and nice tubing.  And, they're super reasonably priced.  We'll stock the Soul, more of a trail bike that accepts 100-140mm forks, and the BFe which takes up to 160mm forks.  Both bikes are 650b, use Reynolds 853 tubing, take a tapered fork, and threaded bottom brackets.

We decided to build the Soul with a decent parts kit.  Came out at 24lbs on the nose.  Highlights are RockShox SID RCT3 120mm, Shimano XT 11-speed, Easton Haven Carbon cockpit, and DT Swiss XM401 rims laced to 350 hubs.

Mountain Man Challenge - Next up: Nestor Peak!

Thanks to everyone who came out to race this past Sunday.  A big thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who helped make the race run smoothly! 

With the sandy Ridge Super D in the books, we look forward to Nestor Peak.  If you haven't ridden there, do yourself the favor and register now!

The course will be another Super D format, running Nestor Peak from top to bottom.  It's a blazing fast upper and lower section with a gut-buster of a climb in the middle. 

Rider meeting at 9am!  Shuttles start at 9:30, and race begins at 11am.  Please try to carpool to the race--parking is limited.  We will shuttle racers 4 miles up the road, and then you'll pedal the last 2.3 miles to the start (.9mi of that is flat and 1.4 is a climb).  No shuttle vehicles will be allowed other than Fat Tire Farm rigs. 

Race run is 6 miles with 300' of climbing (most of it in one shot) and 2800' of descent.

See the map below for details.

New at the Farm - Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 790 MSL BC

Rocky's Thunderbolt is all new for 2015 with an oversized main pivot shaft and zerk fittings so you can overhaul your bushings.  It gets the Ride-9 feature that makes the Altitude and Instinct such versatile bikes.  Internal cable routing (including Di2 compatibility), and of course, it's a carbon frame.  The BC moniker means it comes with a bit more travel and has a more slack head tube angle.  Spec is spot-on, there's really nothing to change on this one--put your pedals on and go.
