Time to upgrade - I love the RANS but those little wheels gotta go - I like the shocks and solid feel but just rode this and LOVE it - Will put the RANS on their floor on Consign and get this tomorrow - From the site:

We’ve had a bit of extra time around the shop here recently and figured we’d have a little fun with a shop favorite. You might be looking at these photos and thinking this bike looks like a Giro 26 but something is very different about it. What began life as a stock Bacchetta Giro 26 has been reborn as… The BFB. Oftentimes on the rough, post-winter streets around here, the narrow, high pressure stock tires can be a bit jarring to even the most seasoned riders. With the BFB, we went with as fat a tire as we could fit and now go searching for the next patch of rough road. Maybe you have some experience with lower pressure fat tires and know exactly what we’re talking about and, if not, you should stop by and give this bike a try. It may not be the lightest bike out there but, we’d put it up against a full suspension two wheeler any day.

Now down to the details:
Frame: Bacchetta Giro 26 (Medium/Large Size)
Fork: Surly Disc Trucker
Seat: Bacchetta Euromesh (we can swap on a Recurve seat for no extra charge)
Drivetrain: Bacchetta Standard 3x9
Brakes: Avid BB7 mountain disc brakes
Wheelset: Velocity Blunt B35 rims laced onto Velocity sealed ATB disc hubs
Tires: Schwalbe Big Apple 26 x 2.35
Pedals: Wellgo LU-A52 BMX (our favorite platform pedal with lots of grip)

That was one of the models that I mentioned. These are supposed to be light and fast for a bent. Have you been out on it yet? How do you like it?

I dig it the most daddy-o as I ripped it around yesterday.

This is not as light as the other Giros as it has beefier forks and of course the fat rims and tires - I did ride a Giro 26 ATT which was light as hell an had some skinny ass tires - Felt like i was riding on the edge of an envelope with how thin those tires are and how with a sneeze the damn thing turned in - I am just using these bikes for bombing the neighborhood streets at 6am to reduce my fat ass - If I was going to suit up and pedal for 100 miles, the ATT would be my choice but for bumps and neighborhood sticks and crap, I am digging this modded out Giro - Super smooth too - I should have it around noon'ish today

Here is the ATT I rode too in a side by side compare - Just like the feel of the fat tires and beefy, planted feel of the other Giro better -

At first I thought this pic was the gayest thing I ever saw you do. Now that I see this thread I retract that statement. WTF is that?? So you move the recliner that is in your living room and attach it to this gay as contraption and you ride around the neighborhood so everyone can see you have turned in ur balls to the wife? Now I know you are serious about not picking up any new snatch. I don't even think the milf in ur subdivision will even give you a second look if they see you rolling past them while they are bent over gardening. Soon you are going to tell us you traded in the Harley for a trike so you can detach that recliner from the pedal bike to the motorcycle. Seriously dud this is as gay as it gets. If I come by your house and you are in spandex and a bicycle helmet I will personal beat the shit out of you.

HAHAHAHA - Awesome - Dude, my back cannot take standard bikes and this is like riding a recumbent in the Gym - Very comfortable and is getting me back in shape

No spandex at all bro - Just my daisy dukes and a wife beater

Love that pic and that spicy sausage was awesome - Fuck it was hot that day
