It’s A Fat World, Joseph Ahearne Interview
The theme for the 2012 North American Handmade Bicycle Show is fat-bikes! At least in the bike hermit’s feeble mind. First up is Joseph Ahearne’s take on the genre. I was able to squeeze in this interview when he wasn’t bombarded with customers and we talked about this bike as well as the other off-road tourer he brought to the show.
Inner tubes stretched over custom fender frames.

The rack suports the fender, the fender supports the rack. Integration of parts makes for a more reliable touring machine.
Stay tuned. More to come.
