    You might have motivated me to ride up to the Bells today.

  6. Are you fat? Do you like it? What would you do different next time?

    Packaging: Good
    Assembly: Fair
    Quality/Value: Not quite as nice as my first Pugsley, but a third of the price.

    Looking for a large fatty for my son, so he and his dog can join us?
    Like to keep it well under $1000.
    Not opposed to used, Bikes Direct or any others?

    I guess if you say so, but it's pretty easy to blow a $100 on a tire.

    It's heavy, but what the hell. It's fine for your intended use.
    I have more than that, in just tires, on mine.

    I have skinny studded Nokian Extremes on my old Bridgestone for total ice. But I'm not sold on them for the fatty around here.

    I love my Lake MXZ303s winter shoes with Shimano 959's. Really versatile shoe, 50f down to -5f. very water proof.
    I hate wet feet and these are the best shoe's I've tried and they last a long...

    Post up a review, after you get some time on them. I'll need some new rubber about the time the snow flies.
    Not sure a 4.8 will fit on the back of my 1st gen Farley.

    I have an extra pair of large Margies mounted with Black Floyds slicks w/new cassette, I'd let go cheap.

    I think I'd leave it 2x10. I have XX1 and if I was in the mountains, I'd be adding a wolfstooth granny for climbing in snow. My knee is toast, so ymmv.
  22. Are you fat? Do you like it? What would you do different next time?

    Aspen has the Fat Cycle Challenge race this weekend to warm up.

    Back when it was a mud/slush fest, I had to spray my bike off after every ride.

    Now, 30-40 minutes into my morning ride, my X1 der is freezing up and I'm losing my high gears.
    I assume I have...

    We have had similar weather. But last night it froze hard and started snowing. It changed from 4" of unridable slush to a smooth supportive crust this morning.

    He's asking as much as a new one and it also has relatively skinny tires for the beach. Is he going to give you a warranty?

    Just get a new one. I'd get one with at least 3.8"s

    Yes, a fat on the beach will help make living in MS tolerable.
    A dog would probably help too.

    Those conditions are great, but kind of rare. Does Soldier Hollow ever allow bikes on the groomed XC trails?

    Where do you live?
    I love my fatty, because it's wet here almost all the time. But I do realize they're not ideal for everyone.

    I wouldn't recommend a SS fatty. You really need a low gear to get through anything really soft, snow, sand or mud. I wouldn't want to be spinning that low all the time.

    I've got about 2k miles on my Farley 8 so far and I'm very happy. I'm not really much of a techie and didn't want to jump into the first Gen FS fatties.

    The derailleurs give me occasional problems, but not enough to go back to SS.

    Buzzsaw was just too pricey for me at this time. That's why I popped for the Farley 8.

    That looks like a really nice trail. Almost makes me want to schedule a trip to Marquette in the winter, almost.

    I use a standard CO2 cartridge to get it started. Saves a lot of pumping.



    I wouldn't recommend a single speed fatty. Your knees will wish for grannies if you take it into the soft stuff,...

    I'm 56 with some aftermarket parts and more in my future. I've loved my Pug for three years, but think I can see a FS Fatty coming along.

    Slush is the most difficult surface to ride.
    Today we had freezing rain over a 4" snow pack.

    I didn't think it was suppose to hurt when you fall off in the snow. I found out different this morning.
    Icy off camber, went down hard. Might need the studs.

    I dig how quiet it is riding thru newly fallen snow.

    I've never had to buy a fat tire. I bought my pug off a guy that worked for Trek in Waterloo about three years ago. Almost brand spanking new bike with two sets of rims and six pairs of tires.
