In Jackson Hole, the calendar is all but irrelevant in distinguishing seasons. Because the moment snow hits the ground, attention shifts to winter activities. And with it, the bikes on both paved and rugged trails get bigger and badder.
To celebrate Jackson Hole’s fat biking community and our local culture of all-season adventure, Visit Jackson Hole teamed up with Otso Cycles for a special collaboration: a limited edition “Stay Wild” fat bike.
The custom hand-painted fat tire bike was created by award-winning illustrator and Jackson Hole resident Tim Tomkinson. The Otso Voytek
bike frame was illustrated using a paint pen to reflect the wild spirit and environment of Jackson Hole. A hand-carved sterling silver Stay Wild head badge adds to the bike’s high-craft feel. The custom bike will first appear in the December issue of Outside magazine.
From the original hand-painted design, a series of wraps were created for a limited run of Stay Wild bikes. One bike (valued at $5,000) will be given away by Outside magazine via a text message sweepstakes. Details on the giveaway can be found in the December issue and online.
Another wrapped bike will be given away at the JH Nordic 3rd Annual Free Ski, Fat Bike & Snowshoe Day on January 6, 2019. This bike will be on display at The Hub Bicycles in Jackson Hole throughout November and December.
If you’re itching for a ride today, you can rent one of three custom fat bikes right now at The Hub Bicycles. So get out there and Stay Wild — you’ll likely turn a few heads in the process.
