Because we always strive to make the best. We knew the Rhino was a great bike from the first ride, but not everyone needs or wants to be able to have a single speed. We started making the changes from there; we kept the chain stays at their shortest, added internal routing for a dropper post, and locked the engineers in a room until they came up with the best possible tubing profiles for this bike. Put it all together and the Rhino FLT was born.

The crew here at Fatback Bikes is always making tweaks to their personal bikes to make them just a little better; trying new tires, brakes, drivetrains… So naturally we do the same with the products we make. We ask ourselves, "can we make is stiffer, lighter,more comfortable, and increase cold weather performance? Can we improve clearance for larger tires while maintaining narrow Q-factor?" Each model is designed for a certain purpose, we focus on what will make it pedal, handle and look better than ever. Each little aspect is contemplated to see what we can improve. With this dedication to improvement we have released the new FLT product line focusing on light weight, high performance and premium ride quality bicycle frames and components.
