Fatcreations' SCOTT Patron Wins Cycle Show BikeRadar Jaw Droppers Award
The Cycle Show & London eBike Festival featured the BikeRadar Jaw Droppers stand featuring customised bikes from a range of brands
We are pleased to announce the winner of our BikeRadar Jaw Droppers competition is… Fatcreations’ customised SCOTT eMTB.
The Jaw Droppers display, secured by Litelok, saw an impressive range of customised and one-off bikes showcased in the main hall on which visitors voted for their favourite. Brands competing included Cannondale, Enigma, Vielo, Chapter2, LIOS, Festka and more.
Once the dust had settled on this year’s show and the votes had been counted, the stand-out winner was the customised SCOTT Patron eRide electric MTB designed by leading UK custom paint company, Fatcreations.
Speaking of the award, Fatcreations founder Alistair McLean said: “I wanted the bike to represent the chaos that has become Fatcreations. It is humbling that our small little shed paint studio has erupted into this amazing chaotic dream. This is where the paint idea came from, a dreamy stormy rear half representing the beginnings of a frame paint – the prep, the gritty dirty work of getting the existing paint off of a frame, with the front of the bike transitioning into these sometimes wild and colourful creations that just make you smile.”
The inspiration around the choice of the bike came from Alistair’s own experiences. “The reason behind it being an eBike is that I have a heart condition which means I have to moderate my heart rate. I can still enjoy riding with others on one of these.
“I loved the look of the SCOTT Patron eRide and we left no stone unturned with the effort we put in, from the copper leaf logos to painting the Enve rims, the bars, seat post, saddle, several of the covers that are essential with e-bikes.”
As the winner of the competition, Fatcreations were awarded a cash prize of £1500 which McLean immediately donated to a great cause. “The prize money is going to the Ride for Charlie foundation, a cause close to my heart. Charlie sadly passed away from a similar condition to myself and his parents, Nick and Sarah, are very good friends. We would like to thank SCOTT Bikes, Hope Tech, Saddleback, DMR, Continental Tyres and Peaty’s Products for the support and making this Ali’s dream eBike.”
