Thank you to everyone that supported our fundraiser, and a huge thanks to Rocky Mountain Bicycles for donating such an amazing bike.
Rocky Mountain Bicycles wants to get you out riding this winter on their new Blizzard fatbike, valued at $2699! Purchases your tickets and help support NEMBA's Trail Grant Program and our advocacy efforts.
The drawing will be be January 15th, and the winner will select the size Blizzard he or she wishes!
New for 2015, Rocky Mountain describes the bike as follows:
In order to live up to the legendary Blizzard name, our goal was clear: create a true “mountain-bike-feeling” fat bike. With suspension-optimized design, progressive geometry, and a truly capable parts specs, the Blizzard delivers Rocky Mountain ride quality on snow, sand, and anything else you get yourself into.
We designed the Blizzard with a shorter- than-average top tube to keep it nimble, and wide 4.7” tire clearance for maximum float on soft terrain. Engineering for a suspension fork required optimizing for the additional length while providing an aggressive 68.5° head tube angle."
The parts spec of the Blizzard is solid! Shimano 10-speed drivetrain, Raceface cranks, 4.8" wide Vee Rubber tires, RockShox Blutos suspension fork. Check out the full spec on Rocky Mountain's website.
You can see a Blizzard in person at a Rocky Mountain Dealer near you!
