Yup, it is true. Today Bromont Quebec based bike manufacturer Xprezo announced they have produced a handful of fat bikes that are now for sale!
I’ve ridden a handful of Xprezo bikes and if my Super D is any indication, we’re looking at locally produced frames (45 minutes over the VT border) at a quality second to none.
And to add of the excitement, the boys at Xprezo have jumped into the frankenbike market with a model that can accommodate a 4.8″ tire. Gucci Moonlander here I come! Now the question is what color do I want?
Here’s Antoine’s orriginal announcement:
