Automatic Cycles Fatty

Whilst there weren’t as many fatties as I’d anticipated at this years Bespoked show there was one that really stood out.

John Ross (aka Shaggy) has been making frames under the Automatic Cycles name for a while now and I had a little chat with him about this latest offering.

Designed for his better half this ‘interestingly coloured’ bike boasted a simple yet elegant design with a lot of nice detailing (like the beatiful handmade headtube badge).

He says that he’s sill playing around with custom designs and just putting things ‘out there’ to see what works, what’s popular etc… and so there are no immediate plans for a production model but it was a pretty little thing.

  1. That’s pretty much the only fatbike I saw. Though if you were there from 9:30am to 11am on Saturday you might have seen mine moored outside.

    There were some beautiful bikes at the show, but a real absence of fatbikes. Shame.

    • Agreed.

      I am included the 27.5+ bikes in the ‘fatbike’ category.

      More on those later…..
