Frank | Titanium Fat Bike

Welcome Frank, the newest member of the BBCo family. More than just a titanium fat bike, Frank is 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 that tickles your fancy, Frank’s strength and fervor manhandles any and all conditions. As the byproduct of BBCo’s elite family genes, Frank is a titanium fat bike that’s incredibly lean, strong, and handsome. 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 is he does physique. We wouldn’t disagree. Frank gets it done. You’ll be hard pressed to find a fat bike that’s as lightweight and rugged as Frank. Built around an adaptable, lightweight titanium fat bike frame, Frank is a behemoth that delivers high-end performance with admirable demeanor.
