Farley 7 is the mountain biker's fat bike. It's built to feel like a traditional mountain bike with way more capability. The lightweight aluminum frame, SRAM 1x12 drivetrain, dropper post, and Manitou Mastodon fork make it the ideal ride for trail-shredders who want to get rad in every season.
It's right for you if...
You want your fat bike to feel like your traditional mountain bike. Or, you're riding a fat bike year-round and want to put your money into the parts that really matter, like a performance drivetrain and a quality suspension fork.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with Stranglehold dropouts, an 80mm Manitou Mastodon suspension fork with an air spring and lockout feature, a wide-range SRAM NX/SX 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Level T brakes, a dropper post, and SUNringlé Mulefut wheels paired with a 108T Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, and extra-grippy 27.5x4.5" Bontrager Gnarwhal TLR tires.
The final word
This is a fat bike that rides with the handling characteristics of a traditional trail bike—only it's a lot more versatile. You're getting a great frame and a performance parts group, but you're really paying for the incredible capability of the Manitou Mastodon fork.
Why you'll love it
- If you were under the impression that fat bikes were sluggish, this bike will change your mind
- The combination of the Manitou Mastodon fork and 4.5" tires make it easy to charge through snowy trails and rock gardens alike
- It's a four-season freedom machine that lets you ride outside all year long
- The 27.5x4.5" tires deliver more speed and traction than their 26" counterparts
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
