With temperatures in the single digits and a luxurious mix of slick ice and rock hard snow covering the ground, it’s the perfect time for a Big Sale on Specialized fat bikes.
The BIG FAT WINTER SALE lasts the month of January, applies to 2016 Specialized fat bikes aka the Fatboy and Hellga models, and applies for both in-stock bikes and bikes we order during January.
The prices are listed below, and we are offering an additional 50% of the “SAVINGS” total in free accessories. For example, if Jane Biker bought a Hellga Expert, she would save $501 off the Original MSRP and would get an additional $250.50 in free accessories.
We have lots of Specialized fat bikes in stock, and we can always order bikes we don’t have, so come try one out and show Iowa winter who’s boss this January.
The Shop will be closed Sunday 12/6 for the final day of Jingle Cross. Normal hours will resume Monday.
