    I ran them for 2 years and liked them for pretty much every condition. The sidewalls are a bit thin though so beware of too much rubbing and if you run low pressures the rubber will flake off where...

    ^^ I can relate. Was 140 at 40 and have put on about 40# in the last 12 years or so. Gotta do something about it. Soon!

    I can't really diss the Bluto, heck I'm riding a Reba on my plus bike and it's been totally sufficient. Sure I'd like a little bit more plush but not enough to spend for it. You're welcome to ride my...

    ^^ Many of the ones that can handle 4.6 tires can BUT keep in mind that it will be a 170/177 or 190/197 hub so you won't just be able to take the wheels from your current 29er and put them on, you...

    Cool, I'll have to look into those. I like my 82mm Thumpers :)

    Necessary? I guess not but smoother is nice on the old body.

    Yeah that's what happened to me too. This year it's been all about the plus bike. Let me know when you're ready for that set of plus wheels, these are pretty kickass...

    So I'm putting together a proposal for a fat bike program at my local ski area and will be presenting it to the owners this week. They own over 300 acres and only actively use ~90 and...

    So get a 650 fat and a second set of wheels for icy rides, 26 fats will fit pretty much all of them.

    Not yet but as soon as they hit the states in March I will ;) I got out on the Hayduke today and the numbers are pretty similar. Super easy bike to ride, climbs well, corners predictably, descends...

    Yup. I've never been a Surly fan though, the bikes are kinda cool on the surface but they ride like tanks and I tend to appreciate nimble and sporty rather than bulldozers.

    So one of the lines I'm repping now is Wren Sports. We have an inverted fork for fatties (and plus and 29er too with 100 and 110mm hub spacing) that I finally got on my bike today. Fukn thing kicks...

    I've seen a bunch of 27.5+ bikes the last two weeks and they look like they would be easy to ride hard. 27.5 fat should add the versatility that fatties are so good at and with the option of having...

    Go fat, the versatility it adds is a bonus. You have pretty much the same outer diameter (sometimes larger) as the 29er but with the added rollover capacity of the wider footprint. Think of an old...

    Wonderful. Hours and hours of sleet topped with hours of freezing mist. The whole place is a fucking ice cube. As useless as the sun is this time of year we need all we can get, temp NEEDS to get...

    Don't get me wrong, they're great bikes but (imho) they have a limited focus. The Pugs and Moonies are more utility oriented now. They were the shiz for a while but we've moved forward and they...

    Don't get a moonlander, they are tanks. Unless the primary use will be on snow I found them to be too sluggish. You can get a great deal on a 1 or 2 year old used nice fatty that has barely been...

    I wish it could handle a bigger tire in the back. Gonna wait for 2nd gen full squish fat and see what's what for 5" capacity. Hopefully the wait won't be too long.

    Found out today that a carbon Fatboy is in the works. No idea about release timing though. 27.5+ is also going to happen but didn't get confirmation if they are going to keep it at 3" or go bigger.

    Fuggin useless snowpack. Really need this stuff to consolidate so it can be ridden on. Maybe the warmish week ahead will do the trick.

    I'm gonna try tomorrow morning. Hoping that the 1" of sleet and many hours of rain and now real cold set things up. I know the snow on the side of my driveway has an inch thick crust but it is more...
