Any fat bikers in the group?

Post by BacoNoir » Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:19 pm

Sure I know where some of you guy’s minds went so just to head it off...I’m a double fat biker - fat dude on a fat bike.

Today I was out rolling a fatty and now I’m tired and ready crash on the couch.

Nope. With the Salsa Vaya, I can't decide if I want to go road bike or mountain bike next year. Looks fun!!!

Another Clydesdale hereImage

Too cold to ride here this week. Wind chill in the -25°f range before you even get a single crank rotation. Here's mine-Image

I’m still riding my 1994 Cannondale. I really should get something new.

LOL. They are Ergon grips with built in stubby bar ends, and I’ve been using them for years on my bikes but just went to ODI lock ons on my XC bike and need to order some for the fatty.

I love Ergon products! I use their grips and saddles on my full suspension bike.

Model? I have a '92 MT1000 hanging up in the garage waiting for me to find a new fork (1.25" head tubes are a bitch to find parts for)

It needs a lot of work. I just ride it around the neighborhood with my kids.

I saw the title and thought I had a chance to be a productive poster around here, opened the thread and realized its the wrong kind of fat

Nice! I’m considering buying a set of 29+ tires/rims for my fat bike for summer riding.

My 29er wishes I never bought the Big Jon lol. I never ride it anymore. I should sell it and do the same for street riding with my kids.

Fully rigid mountain bikes are what I rode from '87-'94. The fat bike is what I dreamed of back then. Frankly, I like a rigid fork and 4 8" tires inflated properly does the right amount of damping for my taste

As much as I like riding Singletrack, I might do more bikepacking next year on my Surly. Maybe even switch to Moloko Bars, sorta like the Jones.

I'm with Erik. Rigid was my ride up until '94 or so. I rode rigid frames bikes down VT ski hills in those days. I remember my hands being numb at the end of the day.

I appreciate a little suspension today....
