ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (BRAIN) — Fatback Bikes has hired mountain bike racer and industry vet John "Fuzzy" Mylne as brand manager.
"Fuzzy brings years of racing, riding, and industry expertise to the table," said Fatback owner and designer Greg Matyas. Mylne most recently worked for Niner Bikes.
"It's an exciting time to join the Fatback team," Mylne said. "Their passion not only for the bikes, but the adventures fat tire bikes lead to are inspiring. I'm looking forward to working with another exciting brand almost as much as the adventures I'll have on these bikes."
Fatback started producing Titanium Fatbacks in 2007. The company said it developed many of the designs seen on bikes marketed by major brands, including the symmetrical 170 drivetrain and the new 190mm drivetrain. Fatback worked with e*Thirteen and FSA to develop crank sets specifically for the bikes, and with its own line of Uma rims, working with Stan's NoTubes, Fatback has been running tubeless fat tires since 2009.
