Sharing the same DNA as every Appleman, mountain bikes are fully customized with enhanced tire clearance, strength, and toughness. There are a lot of tire options in the mountain and fat bike world, and I build them all. You want the latest 4-inch, fat, convertible to 27.5 +? No problem! Custom chain stays make nearly any size tire available, all the way from a 24" to 29+, fat tires.

My first impressions were correct, you have built me the best fitting bike I have ever had a chance to ride in my 45 years of cycling and it’s exactly what I wanted.

Lightest fabike in the world!
Many don't know that Appleman is home to the lightest fatbike frame in the world coming in at 1000g! Weight is certainly not a driving factor in my designs, but depending on your height and weight, frame weight can be surprisingly light.
