Guys
Anybody want to help me out
I know there are some of you using these in your TR.
I want to purchase a Fat Bike from the US, as they are not common in Australia.
I can get free delivery within US but they won't ship to Australia :cry:

My freight forwarder quoted me mega bucks to forward as they won't re-pack the carton.

Would any Fat Bike lover be willing to help me out and re pack a bike for me?

I am willing to finance your time and effort.

Let me know

Thanks

I am after something entry level to trial with the tours this season.
Image
I can get a good deal on an entry level bike but its shipping dimensions are 85x45x30!
It appears to be fully assembled crazy!
The freight to oz is robbery!
I'd be open to any help!

Cheers

Okay, I can't be much help living in Alaska since shipping to me would be too expensive too. I thought you might be after a Fatback or 9zero7 which are local in AK.

Good luck.

The "Gear Exchange" in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the Phat-bike shop to get set up with a fat-bike. I frequent this shop often and I always see an new custom fat bike being built, but rarely do I see these bikes remain on the sales floor. In other words they are crazy at selling custom fat bikes. Furthermore there out racing (and winning) mountain bike races here in Western Colorado (such as Frutia, CO) on their fat bikes.

They are even willing to try convert my Surly Big Dummy (cargo bike) into a Fat Bike!

Check them out at: http://thegearexchange.blogspot.com/

Address: 212 6th St, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601
Phone:(970) 945-8500

email:
Darin Binion and Randy Tuggle <gearexchange@comcast.net>

They are willing to ship over to Australia.

I think Darin is a DIY self Splitboarder too!
