2016 Advocate Watchman FAT Bike.
Designed as an all-around, do-it-all fat bike, the Watchman™ combines short chainstays and slack angles to build a bike that’s just as comfortable on sand as on singletrack.
The Watchman stands apart from every other Fat Bike I have ever tested. Somehow Advocate has perfected the steering angles. The bike handles like a normal size tire bicycle! Almost all Fat bikes steer horribly, track uncomfortably and can't be ridden no hands... As you can image, poor handling is less than desirable. This is a non issue for the Watchman. The bike handles like a dream. I'd happily ride one year round.
I have a size Small Grey demo available at discount. Call if you're interested... 914-827-9570
