I've been working up in the Minnesota/Wisconsin area a lot lately and got the fatbike bug just like you, Hair. Just came today and assembled the fatty this afternoon. Can't wait till tomorrow to see how it spins. I have a lot of getting into shape.
Let it Snow!

Tim, have you looked at the new Surly Krampus? 29"x3" tires. Sort of between MTB and fat bike. They're pretty neat.


Nice bike Jim. Lots of ADV folks pedaling these days. I just built this bike up and am really loving it:

It's super fun. Works for every type of riding I do. I have other bikes, but this one gets ridden the most by far.

I'm down to four plus a lot of parts.

We've got about a dozen in the garage.

I'll add my congrats on your new bike, Jim! Multiple Bike Syndrome is sometimes a good thing. But I did have a question: How will you go about killing tents with that bike?

You'll need to get a healthy run at them, fer sure...or do I have you confused with Cowboy?
