With its” Grinder”, Fatlab presents a road bike that is far from being restricted to paved routes. Both its frame and fork are made of Toray’s premium T700 and T800 carbon fiber, and apart from internal cable routing you also get a tapered head tube and post mount mounts in the rear and on the fork.
What really sets the “Grinder” apart is the fact that its frame has been designed to fit wider tires– as a standard, Fatlab specs this gravel bike with 700x40c tires. But less adventurous types might as well put a 700c x 28mm tire on if they want to ride less rough Road or off-road routes.
To make this bike even more versatile you’ll find eyelets to mount fenders both on the frame and the fork. While complete builds come with a Sram Rival Hydro 2×11 drivetrain, Fatlab also offers the “Grinder” as a frameset and as a rolling frame.
