What do you have planned for Father's Day?!

We have a great last minute answer for you and that is...  

FAT BIKE RENTALS!


At first, you might be thinking "Why in the world would I want to travel around the hilly Seattle area with my dad on a huge fat bike?!" Well, we have tested this thought with a few of our customers and staff and have found the ultimate path that works perfectly with all terrain bikes for the route of a lifetime. 

Basically, you pedal just a few blocks from our shop to Yesler and make your way to Pier 50. From there, you pay $4 and hop on a Water Taxi (goes every half hour on weekdays and hour on weekends) and it takes you to one of Seattle's most beautiful beaches with an immaculate Seattle backdrop perfect for memorable picture taking. Yes, we are talking about West Seattle's Alki Beach. Tons of activity going on in almost sub-city of Seattle from cute boutiques to cultured bars and restaurants! Of course, you'll find a ton of foot traffic on the beach that will surely be turning heads while you ride by. More importantly, you're out there loving life with the people you love most without having to worry about parking.

Check out a few of our customers that enjoyed themselves on our rental fats:

 

If you are interested, set up an appointment with us today before it's too late for Father's Day and we'd be happy to get you and your family and friends set up with a fat for a fun ride around town and a GUARANTEED blast!!

FAT BIKE RENTALS for the SUMMER!

The summer is practically here and most of us are aching for some adventure and fun. Well, we have an easy answer for you - ahem - FAT BIKE RENTALS. Make a statement and try this bump absorbing bike on all types of terrain - all for $25 for the day or $20 per bike for 2+ riders! Want to have the bike overnight for a nice camping trip or night adventure? Add another $15 and call it good. We are basically giving away these bikes so that those in the pacific northwest can have a chance to really feel like a dirty kid again....

Fat Sand Bikes, with whom Seattle E-Bike partners to create our Fat Bike line, are built in the United States. Fat Sand Bikes use a 4.8 inch wide, yes, 4.8 inch wide, 30 inch tall tire. Fat Bikes are tremendous for off-road work of all kinds.  If you let most of the air out of the tires, they are amazing on loose sand and unstoppable in snow.  Fat Bikes are superb at roaring down mountain trails and are legal on Forest Service Hunting Lands. Fat Bikes also make really good urban warriors.  Great on hard surfaces, the shock absorbing capabilities of the fat tires allow you glide over potholes or to go up curbs at 10 miles an hour while barely noticing it.

Most impressive of all is the E-bike version of our Fat Bike, the Cascade E-Monster. With the powerful front-mounted 750 Watt hub motor powered by a center-mounted Panasonic lithium battery and eight speed internal Alfine gear box on the back wheel, if you pedal, you have the world’s first all wheel drive bicycle that can get you up those tumultuous hills effortlessly.  We offer 4 Fat Bike Models: the Fat Cruiser, the Terrain Destroyer, the Mountain Monster, and the Cascade E-Monster. Our Fat Bikes are available in a stunning array of primary colors as well as black and Camo ($80 extra).  We also offer different tire options and easy mounting fenders that can save your butt from the muddiest of days.

Fat Bikes with Internal Gears.  One thing that is different (and better) about our Fat Bike than any of the competition we are aware of is our gearing system.  Unlike derailleur gears, they are unaffected by salt or sand or mud and are much more resistant to damage from rocks, roots, etc. Our entry level Cruiser has a 3 speed internal Shimano Nexus hub, the Terrain Destroyer has the 8-speed version. To both bikes, we have added a front disc brake in the front because of the hills and the rain we have here in Seattle. 

Our Mountain Monster and the Cascade E-Bike Monster employ Shimano’s finest internal hub, the Alfine, a superbly assembled, 8-speed smooth unit with fittings that permit us to install an extraordinary powerful twin hydraulic brake system. The Alfine alone retails for nearly $500.

We want you to ride anywhere you want. 

Seriously! The Seattle E-Bike staff has tried these fat bikes up some of the more gruesome terrain that is sometimes unavoidable in Seattle and surrounding areas from sharp, rigid gravel trails -to deep, compact, icy snow, up the Harbor steps in downtown Seattle, by Alki beach in deep sand. Why not take a smooth ride over a curb or through a puddle with excitement and surprisingly easy peddling? With the slender profile of a bike, even a Fat Bike, you can go around the bad stuff that will stop jeeps and ATV’s.
