Tommi Coghill has always loved beach life along with all the other sporting activities associated with the beach, like surfing, fishing, kayaking but always found it cumbersome to carry all these beach accessories from the car to the beach. In a joint venture, Tommi helped design a beach cart with mammoth wide tires that made it easy to carry the beach accessories from the car to the beach with great ease.
Bicycling on the beach can be difficult on a traditional bike especially in softer sand, so Tommi took the wide tire concept and applied it to bicycle tires, creating one of the first fat tire bikes made specifically for riding on the beach.
Realizing the salt water could be corrosive to the bike components, Coghill carefully selected top of the line rust resistant components that could withstand any elements.
As a bike racing enthusiast, Coghill has redesigned many bike components to be lighter and faster. One Tommi's racing bikes recently one two world records for distanced cycled in a 24 hour time period. Learn more at Xtreme Bike Racing Web Site
