18.7lb fatty

Of course it's all high end parts, but as they point out, they didn't go with all the _VERY_ lightest stuff out there - notably the rims.

Waiting for my fatty to be delivered, expecting it'll be double that bike's weight. :D

That might even be the same frame you are getting since Lamere uses the same Chinese Carbon frames featured here on Chinertown :).

Tried to look it up to verify that, but XMIPlay's site was down yesterday. :o

The LaMere looks like a fatty version of the 057 frame. None of the three XMIPlay frames look exactly the same, and the geometry numbers don't match up. Won't stop me from getting an 019 if I enjoy this fat bike thing, I don't think. :D

I know this is old but i am pretty sure the frames they use are the same as the DengFu FM190.  they geo is identical and the chart even looks identical.  i looked at the Lamere but i could get an entire bike by going with the FM190 over the Lamere with the same geo numbers.

Have seen this bike in person. Beautiful bike and very expensive in the shop. Fairwheels is a great LBS in Tucson...
