    I can't speak for most of us, but I ride flats and still use the balls of my feet when I'm wearing insulated boots.

    If you can get more power by using the arch of your foot (Point #1 their...

    Seriously? Better power by pedaling with your arches instead of the balls of your feet? After reading the first page of their site, I would never use their pedals.

    Nice, the stuff you video'd doesn't look too torn up. I need to get back over there.

    Nice. I love riding in dunes. I've ridden Coral Pink a couple of times and also Sand Mountain, south of Hurricane, Utah. I found that wind blown, packed sand is great, but anything that has been...

    See, this is why I only ride my fat bike. I can blame my speed on the bike and my over all fitness and age is not questioned.

    We had our first snow since December 4th. It's amazing how 2 to 5" of snow can be such a work out.

    That thought kept me away for a long time also. I may get brave and try the tape and foam one of these days.



    Tires have held up fine. I'm not riding huge distances at these pressures, but some...

    I have Bud n Lou on Clownshoes that I converted to split tube tubeless. I used a 24 X something Q tube with a removable presta core. I split the tube in half, easy to do because there is a mold...

    I'm sorry Hugh Conway, but I'm not familiar with your illustrious posting career on TGR, but can't you find another thread to whine and complain on? This one seems to be about the joy of fat bikes,...

    I fixed it for you.

    I find that I prefer sand riding, it's almost always rideable. Snow, especially not machine packed, is anybody's guess.

    Is that the Spiral Getty? If it is, it's much higher than I've ever seen it.

    A couple of us did the Global Fat Bike Day at Red Cliffs in southern Utah. It was their 3rd largest snowfall for a single day.

    Tubeless would probably have helped, but I was running Surly fat tubes with 4 to 5 psi. The riding was good on the wind packed sand, but difficult where the motorized had been (which was almost...

    It's amazing.

    You can get a fat frame that will allow you to run both the Rabbit Hole/ Knard and a Clownshoe/ Bud n Lou, best of both worlds.

    I had an ~80 year old hiker tell me that if he got a bike, he wanted one like mine.

    On my last longish ride I climbed 2600' with a starting elevation of 8500'. My bike was probably around 45 lbs (full frame bag). I was slow, but I'm always slow. The only time a fat bike will be...

    Looks like the tires are Bud n Lou, so it will take some wide meat. I like how Special Ed removed the tire logos, typical.

    There are no tubeless specific rims that I'm aware of, so it's like any homebrew system. There's those that love it and have no problems, and then there are the ones that can't get it to work no...

    Fatty love all depends on what you are trying to get out of a ride. If you have a need to be the fastest guy on the trail, forget the fatty unless you ride in sand or snow. If you can have fun at any...

    Yeah, I'm fat. So is my bike and my dog. I turned in my Man Card years ago, so I don't have to keep up with anyone any more. My bike is heavy and slow, so we are a perfect match. I haven't been on my...
