Fall season signify that it’s that time of the year where several storms form in the Atlantic Ocean. Strong winds sweep the coast generally creating bigger waves than what this region is accustomed to see.
The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others, it is a period highly anticipated by the Northeast surfer community, studying and tracking the storms with great interest. So we filled the car with our surf equipment and our fatbikes, and took the direction of Maine for a long weekend of “fat-surf” adventure!
With long stretches of clean beaches, our fatbikes gave us the opportunity to explore this magnificent part of the Atlantic coastline to search for the perfect spot while the winds were changing directions. We accessed certain areas that would definitely have been out of reach otherwise. And definitely not to neglect, the bikes took us quite quickly back to the campsite, once we were out of the water, to appreciate an authentic Maine clam chowder!

AnticostiGravel Bikes*** Now is the time to book your 2023 Anticosti. Use promo code anticosti at checkout to make a 50% reservation deposit. Limited quantity for 2023. Expected delivery: Late April 2023. Contact us for any questions.*** *Please refer to the component list for 2023 specifications. When you venture on the less traveled roads of the backcountry, sometimes, the beautiful road becomes much more bumpy than what was predicted. The asphalt becomes gravel, and the gravel literally becomes an off-road trail. It is for this kind of adventure that the Anticosti was created. The Anticosti frame is built with a bespoke selection of Reynolds 725 steel tubing, thinned where it is needed to reduce weight. A generous tire clearance allows you to install 27.5x2.1 or 700x50 tires with fenders. For 2023, our steel frame gravel bike has a revised geometry (shorter seattube length and slightly slacker head tube angle) and new curved chainstays offering more clearance to the rear tire. A Rival buildkit, Easton crankset, Hunt wheels and Teravail 700x42 tires makes this bike ready for a quick gravel loop, or for a more ambitious multi-day trip project. *Frameset comes with wheel axles, headset installed, seatpost collar and frame protectors.1,649$ – 3,599$ (CAD)
