Frank | Titanium Fat Bike

Explore a New Frontier With the Chief Frontrunner of Fat Bikes

Designed around its lightweight titanium fat bike frame, Frank is a frontrunner that delivers high-end performance with a touch of class and sophistication. Not only does Frank offer versatile capabilities for all kinds of adventures, but his geometry delivers a unique combination of assertion and minimalism. Read More

The Ti Fat Bike That Gets It Done

Frank is a ti fat bike that opens the door to unlimited terrain and seasonality. Not only is Frank stable and easy to manage, but its titanium frame and fork deliver superior vibration damping which provides a smooth and buttery feel. Frank is precision-engineered to provide optimal lateral stiffness for power transfer as well as vertical compliance for comfort, applying new meaning to those who like to grip it and rip it.

Frank is a functional work of art, providing both rack and fender mounts, 3 bottle cage mounts on either side of the fork, and ample space for a full or partial frame bag. Run an extra-thick 26×4.8″ setup or lean out with a fast 29×3.0″ tire. It’s ideally suited for playfully shredding along snow-covered singletrack as it is for fully-loaded bikepacking missions.

More than just a titanium fat bike, Frank is a loyal companion that you can pedal damn near anywhere. Be it ice-covered back roads, sandy beaches, or wooded single track – no matter the type of riding, Frank’s strength and fervor takes ownership of any and all conditions. As the byproduct of BBCo.’s high-performance heredity, Frank is a titanium fat bike that’s incredibly strong and good-looking. But Frank doesn’t sacrifice speed and performance for stunning good looks. Frank offers the best of both worlds. One might argue Frank offers just as much utility as it does physique. We wouldn’t disagree. Frank gets it done.

Frank’s a growth enabler on all levels, inspiring the likes of weekend warriors, daily commuters, and obsessed adventure cyclists – in all seasons and all conditions. Contact us directly to learn about Frank build options or to buy a frame.
