If you’re looking to utilize your standard roof rack’s fork mount for your fat-bike, you’ll need an adapter. (thanks captain obvious) Our Bike Black Ribbon Test Pilot, Spinner Ryerson, introduced me to a brand new player in the fork adapter market called Fatdapter. Chunky machined, anodized aluminum lends the heft of a fine bicycle component, to the Fatdapter. I’m familiar with the fork mount adapters from (competitor). I have two of their adapters and I have to say that the Fatapter is way more burley. The Fatdapter is made in Wisconsin – Sells for $49.95 and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Spinner spent some time testing the Fatdapter and this is what he had to say.
"We had fun trying to break it, unsuccessfully. The Fatdapter is Simple and Solid, just the way we like things."
