Laura’s has a couple of steel Meriwether’s – one blue fatbike made several years ago with a custom rigid fork, and a 27.5+ MTB in a sparkly pink & leopard outfit. This new fatbike replaces the blue one and as you can see she upped her game asking for a reproduction of the OG Rhygin rasta paint job. Dark Matter Finishing did a stellar job on the execution. Built by Double-down bike shop in Moab, it was the first bike built in their first week opening after a winter siesta. This bike has an updated geometry which is longer and slacker than her blue fatbike, and to help with Moab rocks has a 120mm Manitou Mastodon Pro Ext fork. All tubes were bent in house to get fork crown clearance, lower standover, and shorter chainstays with 26×5″ tires. Other parts include a carbon Fatback Big Su wheelset, Fox Transfer 150 internal dropper post, Industry Nine stem, Meriwether single-Sweeper Ti bars, Cane Creek Hellbender BB and headset, Shimano XT brakes, and SRAM GX Eagle shifters, cranks, and cassette.
