“I want a bike that doesn’t simply follow the herd but can allow me to go anywhere. I like to enjoy the thrills of riding exciting trails, not just snowshoe routes. How I ride puts the phat in fat tire biking. I also don’t want to be restricted by Mother Nature so even when the snow fails to come, I can use the big, beefy tires to crawl up and over any obstacles and rally back down. I want a four season fat bike that is as playful as possible and can cover ground no matter the conditions. Just because I ride a fat bike it doesn’t make me a throat-bearded kook, when I ride I want to raise the hairs on the back of my neck.”
A Fat bike for all seasons
With suspension adapted geometry designed to have the characteristic trail feel of a Chromag, the Nice Dreams is more than just a fat bike. It is an all mountain ripper. Because riders want to ride a fat tire bike on dirt as well as snow we designed it to be able to handle true technical terrain. The Nice Dreams is very capable of handling a variety of terrain because of its steep seat angle / slack head angle, short chainstays, low bottom bracket and considerable stand-over clearance.

We introduced our modular dropout in 2013 in order to accommodate both 10 x 190 and 12 x 197 hub interfaces. Our system interlocks and uses 6mm bolts for durability and longevity. It has proven extremely reliable and the convenience of being able to adapt to hub types adds a degree of future-proof to our bikes.
Head tube badges
Bikes are special. The headtube badge is the finishing touch so we’ve always made a point of taking the time to do something interesting with it. Our headtube badges have changed over the years and are an indication of the time each bike was made. Whether it’s a cast bronze, or polished stainless steel, water cut aluminum or a 3D CNC carving, each one represents our commitment to detail.
Our ‘Yokel’ design is a small machined junction on the chainstay that helps accommodate both tire clearance and chainring clearance. Our first versions were huge CNC yokes that bridged the entire front end of the chainstays. Over time we refined this to minimize weight by arranging our chainstay layout asymmetrically and reducing the yoke to a minimal size. It’s one of our most unique frame features and has been copied by other frame makers.
Making modern chromoly frames is challenging when most of the tubes available on the market are from an era of mountain biking long past. After several years of frame production we reached the point where we could design and produce our own custom tubing for the majority of our frame tubes. This contributes to the unique look of many of our frames but more importantly allows us to configure our bikes exactly as we want for each design.
