The Beargrease has finally landed

Well the UK has been waiting along time for this model to land and they are as rare as Bear Shit in this Country. I choose the framset option as I already had a Salsa Mukluk 2 2013 model and all the parts would swap straight over apart from the lower headset. It was defo worth waiting for and got it built up this pm with no problems at all. Many thanks again must go to Westbrook Cycles for sorting it out with Ison Distribution, check their website www.westbrookcycles.co.uk I have really enjoyed riding the FAT BIKE since owning one from late last year and the looks / comments you get never end when your out and about on it. Watch out as I may be coming back out of retirement & start MTB racing again this season on it! think the last one i did was the Hamsterley Hammer! LOL. If your interested in Fat Bikes then check out the UK FAT BIKE website here - http://www.ukfatbikes.co.uk/ some canny lads as well, the numbers are starting to grow in the NE as they are getting more and more popular.
