Super sweet and good for you too.
Our virtual mechanic is pretty fast. He's also sometimes kind of lazy. He'll swap out frame colors and show you your drivetrain upgrades but he says it takes too long to change brakes and things. He's doing his best but please excuse any irregularities you may notice...
We also really, really recommend that you use the latest version of your favourite web browser. Definitely not IE7 or earlier. Basically, if things look weird here try upgrading your browser.

Our most versatile bike, the Tranny 29, just got a lot more versatile.
Introducing the limited edition Trans-Fat.
The Trans-Fat utilizes the Tranny 29 front triangle, an all new rear triangle and a couple of clever bits to make it compatible with fat bike fitment standards.
Here are a few of the features, and check out the details tab for a lot more information.
The Trans-Fat uses a Tranny 29 front end and a all new swingarm with a couple of custom pieces that allow you to do the transition from 29er hardtail to fat bike.
The Trans-Fat falls into the category of a very sporty fat bike. We use 4” tires on the Trans-Fat, which are considerably lighter and livelier than the 5” tires found on many fat bikes. We want the Trans-Fat to be responsive and fun, whether on sand, snow or dirt. The 4” tires let us put a much shorter than typical chainstay on the Trans-Fat. We’ve slackened the head tube a bit from the Tranny 29, so the bike isn’t twitchy, which is a common complaint of fat bikes our test crew has ridden.
The Trans-Fat is available three different guises:
The Trans-Fat kit consists of:
Note that you'll also need a few other things to complete your conversion, like at RockShox 120mm Bluto fork, a set of 4" fat bike wheels, a crank to fit on the 100mm BSA bottom bracket, and some warm clothing. Unless you're riding it on the beach, in which case, you'll need a speedo or bikini.
The Trans-Fat Retrofit kit has a US MSRP of $699.

Sorry, no build kit info for the Trans–Fat.
If you live in snow country, you’re used to changing from your summer to winter tires on your car each year. The Trans Fat conversion is exactly like that, only completely different.
To move from Tranny 29 to Trans Fat, you need to first have a Trans Fat kit ($699), and a Bluto fork, or similar Fat Bike fork with 120mm of travel and an axle to crown of approximately 531mm. You’ll also need a set of 4” Fat Bike wheels and tires (177mm Rear Maxle)
Once you have that in hand, the process is simple.
