Angry Builds: Corinne’s Salsa Verde Mukluk

We’re fortunate enough to have some pretty wonderful customers.  And sometimes those customers give us a lot of creative power when building a bike for them.  Corinne is one of them.  She came in looking for a new fatbike, but didn’t really know where to start.  After talking through the basics of styles, fits, handling characteristics, and rim/tire options, we came up with a basic outline of what we wanted to build up.  From there, she let me build her dream bike.

Take a look:
