Canyon's Dude fat bike gets a Reverb dropper post

It's not 'Mr Lebowski', man

Fat bike fans listen up, Canyon has added a new flagship model to its Dude range for 2016 called the 9.0 EX. It comes with a Reverb dropper post and extra-chunky 4.8in Jumbo Jim tyres.

The Dude 9.0 EX also gets RockShox Bluto RCT3 fork, SRAM's X01 11speed drivetrain, DT Swiss BR 2250 wheels and SRAM Guide Ultimate disc brakes. It'll set you back £2,999 in the UK (international pricing is TBC), and weight is a claimed 12.5kg.

Next model down is the Dude 9.0 SL, which gets a RockShox Bluto RL fork, the same wheels as its big brother, Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus drivetrain and brakes. Price is £2,399 and claimed weight is 13.1kg.
