    The Fatty is mine, the Lefty belongs to the lady.

    I'd have one of those fat bikes if I had the money.

    You must be kidding right, ridding the fatties is like pushing a Harley over the hill without ridding on it.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    This thread has much potential for getting moderated.

    Really? Where I am in Ontario, fat bikes are the second bike for a lot people. There are hundreds of them & the ski resorts are opening XC trails to fat bikes.

    I have a question for fat bike owners. How do they ride on pavement compared to a regular hardtail mountain bike. Is it REALLY hard work or just hard work? What I'm asking is, if you could only have one bike for everything including commuting, would you consider your fat bike as that one bike?

    GFF chose the Surly Moonlander for the Great Divide race this year, read his post.

    I sorta want one, but too many toys sucks.

    I try to keep my fatbike ride's under 100
    with my studed nates I am about 5 minutes slower on my 8 mile commute than with my slicks I used for the centery
    I passed up allot of roadies on the down hills
    the fastes I was able to hit was 36mph
    my big ring is a 33 so I know I can hit 40 I just spin out
    I don't own or want a road bike
    my fat bike is a safer commuter
    we have some kick but potholes here

    So compared to a 26er hardtail with knobbies (my one bike now) you'd say a fat bike wouldn't be that bad to ride as a "one bike"?

    Good to know. I've got a lot of sand where I'm going.

    You can't ride on that stuff with skinny-assed 2.5" tires.

    It's because you're Canadian. We don't allow Canadian's here - MMkie and DaPeach excluded because they are legacy.

    Whoa, That Black Sheep is masturbatory. So damn sexy. I will probably never be able to afford a fat bike let alone a custom Ti one. I want your bike 4x. If I could afford it, that or the 38 Frameworks carbon. I'd want a rigid SS but I hear SS for fat bikes sucks.

    It is a 135mm centered single speed.

    But the rear is removable and I am having a 170mm being built so I can run gears when I need.

    It also was built so I can run the new 29+ wheels that are on the Surly Krampus.

    What they don't show is that you'd be *pushing* a fat bike *pulling* a pulk for 95% of the time. :rofl:

    :confused:

    What's the goal/logic/idea behind riding a fat bike in Central Mass and/or New England in the warm-weather months? It seems odd to me that a bike with no suspension and more rolling resistance would be more enjoyable to ride than a "normal" mountain bike. Between the climbs and rocks at most of the places I ride, I wouldn't think "fun" would be the word I would use.
