If you know Rob McKillip from Cedar Rapids, you know he like going straight. Time Trials are his thing.

Bike Rumor posted a good feature on Rob and the Fat Equinox.

When Rob McKillip’s venerable Trek TTX Equinox broke during warmups for the Iowa State time trial championship, he didn’t throw in the towel like some would have. Instead he simply hopped on the other bike he’d brought that day; his fat bike. After suffering through that TT, Rob’sbroken Trek was relegated to wall-hanger status and forgotten until a while later when carbon fat bikes started popping up. Unimpressed with the offerings he’d seen, and with the memory of that brutal time-trial-on-a-fat-bike on his mind, Rob began chatting with Drew Wilson of Cyclocarbon; and thus the Fat Equinoxwas born.
