A Streetcar named Desire? How about a Fat Bike named Marquette.

It's no secret that biking enthusiasts across the Upper Peninsula have started to become a bit fixated on winter biking thanks to the fairly recent boom of "fat tire" bicycles.

Now, thanks to a company based in Minnesota called Framed, Yoopers can ride a fat tire bike that is named after a snow-biking mecca right here in the Upper Peninsula. The Marquette bike comes in both an alloy and a carbon frame and is designed to take the vigorous demands of riding in a U.P. winter and over the cross country trails throughout the region.

"The Marquette is completely internally routed with an optional front derailleur mount. The frame is set up with a rear brake post mount, threaded bottom bracket shell, and two water bottle cage mounts. This timeless design is sure to have you hammering trails with the component group of your choice to your heart’s content," the company's description of the Marquette bike reads.

This bike is available as a custom order and can be purchased at most bike stores that offer fat tire options.
