    Woot!! We're all fat

    Flow- Pretty amazing how well these things climb isn't it?

    Buttahball- What was it that really blew you away? For me it's the techy rocky stuff that I can just point it and roll through. Makes me laugh out loud every time.

    Scrub - You able to get out for a (cold) ride either Thurs or Fri morning?

    What I did to alleviate that problem is the Farley that I got is actually for her. I've test ridden it a couple of times now to make sure all the bugs are worked out Amazing thing is it's been here for about two weeks and she hasn't seen it yet, I haven't made any attempts to change that though and our anniversary is Sunday so my plan is to give it to her because my Fatboy should be on the way by then. Moral of the story is you have to get her one too

    edit: Oh and since Rog is getting one soon you'll have someone local to ride with this winter. Perfect timing

    Quit yer bitching and just buy a fat bike. We all know you can hardly contain yourself thinking about how you'll spend your days preaching their greatness

    Saw the Cooker awhile back, looks like a good deal. You'll only regret not getting it

    ya for the price/weight it seems like the ticket. I have a feeling I might have found a one bike year round quiver

    dialed in the pressure, 8.5lbs is $$$!
    i was riding stuff today, that would have been a chore on 2.2's.
    lot's of half frozen deep puddle's, ride right through that shit!
    i laugh a lot.
    from today in Walpole , NH.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I got a Meiser low pressure presta specific gauge just so I could get it right. I'm running 9 in the rear and 7.5 up front. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...d=0CJEBEPUBMAg
    That's a perfect way to describe one of the biggest differences - makes certain (many) moves less of a chore and more of a "just roll it" thing.

    Yup. That's why I called it a gigglefest.

    Uggh, I wish we had gotten some mood snow to ride in this morning, I might have actually gotten my shit out of bed and gone. Instead I decided to let things firm up and go tomorrow. Cold is just cold without the snow.

    Now it's Turkey and beer time! Happy Turkey Day all

    I've discovered I want the front tire even fatter. The bike lets you know pretty quickly it's still a rigid bike, if you're riding it the same (or making attempts to) way you are riding your other bikes.

    Thinking one of the 4.7-4.8" meats up front. Then the current front can just be a spare rear, since that'll be the one needing replacement first anyhow.

    I like the bike rigid, don't want to mess with a fatbike suspension fork, so a fatter tire it is.

    I'm thinking pretty much the same thing but I like how light the front end feels. I guess adding 200-300 grams isn't really that big a deal is it?

    Grand scheme of things, no.

    I'm planning to offset it with On-One's carbon fat fork once available, and a Hope Fat rear hub/Marge Lite combo down the road. Just gotta sell off some more old stuff to offset the pain.

    You know, 'cause a 30# fatbike will work so much more awesomer-er than a 32# fatbike.

    It's fun. Like, may get more of my solo ride time than the Chromag hardtail does fun. Which is sort of scary.

    Bud up front is $$, can run mid 5's now. Plus it looks downright bossy.

    The only bike I have left for trail...my Fatback. SOld my Mukluk this summer - nobody needs two fat bikes, and everyone and their dog around here has a Muk or a Pug.

    Love these things. I'm running 55mm rims with HuDu's right now, but have a buddy that builds wheels, so I'll do a more pimp set of Holy RD's when I have some cash again. I have a set of Nates getting really lonely right now... I doubt I'd bother to go any wider the the RD's - I don't think there's enough benefit for the weight and rubbing issues.

    I did some upgrading - dumped the older XT stuff that was on it for X9 twist (way better with gloves & mitts), and went to a 2x setup over a 3x. I never really used the big ring anyway. Threw a Thudbuster ST on as well -- probably overkill, but hey...it's my only off-roader, so why not pimp it a bit?
    Gravity. It's the law.

    Yup. I am getting close and the build on this for 2,600 looks pretty good and ready to go. not available tilll july though? but featured on website? that is kind of a bummer.

    will be interested to read flowtron's review of the yampa. Love how light that bike is.

    I think the Spec is already in some stores.

    Yeah look at when I posted that. They've been a bit behind but the bikes are finally starting to ship. We have a 17 and 21 in the shop now and mine should be here by early next week. I was hoping for an expert but don't want to wait so I'll "live with" the base model and bump a few bits with parts out of my box o' goodies.

    So, who needs a fatty I have the two I just mentioned and a 19 & 21 Farley just waiting for a loving home
