Check out the Skookum from Fatback Bikes, the do it all mountain bike! The Skookum features ultra short chainstays of 431mm to tuck up to a full 4.8″ tire on 100mm as close to the BB as possible. This makes for super handling in tight and twisty trails or tricky descents. Built in full carbon construction and featuring a tapered inset headset, the Skookum is stiff and light and ready to take on any trail in any season. The Sram GX1 build features the Sram GX1 1×11 drivetrain, New superlight DT Swiss Wheelset, big Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 4.8″ rubber and now has the top performing Manitou Mastadon Pro 120mm fork!

THE “ANY MOUNTAIN” BIKE.
We would love to say we designed the Skookum to be our “Quiver Killer”, but what fun would that be? We really designed it to be N+1, with the hopes that it will be the bike you pull off the rack first. We took the things we love best about our favorite mountain bikes; agility, speed and sexy lines, and combined those with the amazing capabilities of a 26″ X 4.8″ tire; traction, stability, flotation, and comfort.
With all of our desires written on sticky notes (exhausting our supply of sticky notes), the Skookum was born. Designed around a 120mm travel fork and internally routed dropper post, it has an integrated down tube and chain stay protectors, a 197mm through axle, and clearance for narrow Q Factor cranks (for a fat bike). Now it’s just time to dream about the parts we going to use to build it up.
