WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE OF AMERICAN MADE BIKES!
Welcome to the new age of American Made Bikes. The American Stout is a bigger, bolder American Made iteration of our classic Mr. Big Stuff fat bike and is built using our proprietary OME technology. The American Stout increased the wheel size from the older 26" wheelset technology to the advanced 27.5" wheelset for maximum trail and snow efficiency. The larger volume tires float more easily through snow while giving better traction and control as the rider floats through roots and rock gardens. The American Stout is the ultimate "Do it all no matter what you need" trail mountain bike.

First and foremost, I love this bike and the people that built it.
What could be better: I am 6'5" and bought the Al XXL Stout. It is my OPINION that the Head tube could be a little taller to create a higher stack. I'm using a 35mm ride bar, 15mm rise stem, and 30mm of spacers. Low bars is all cool and stuff but that's likely not the type of riding you do in the snow. I know I'm not alone.
What is good: The price is right. The delivery, in a pandemic nonetheless, was not horrible though they missed the target by 3 weeks. It was stressful but I fully recognize the challenge. When other manufacturers cannot get you a fat bike until MAY (MAY!) being a few weeks late is palatable.
What is great: USA MOFOs! This is a bike built in the USA with the manufacturing process set up by one of the most badass custom frame builders in the galaxy. The welds are great. The design (27.5 fat, low ST, 150/197) is modern. Keep in mind, Chinese made bikes are now asking an additional $500 for their bikes due to shipping issues ***uh-huh***. I'll be polite. Color palate is broad and outcomes are good.
Overall, Growler has my vote for bad-assness! If you are super tall and not 25 years old, buy a few spacers and some riser bars.
