Well, it is technically the season for it. Any of you guys have Fat Tire Bikes? I love it but always forget how much more cranking I have to do over my regular mountain bike. It's an endurance builder. I just have a cheapo Gravity on 4" tires with some choice part swaps like stem, handlebars, hydraulic brakes, and pedals.
I have one of these (not actual picture, but looks just like it except mine has the rear rack)...It's electric assist (or throttle), although usually use only the pedal power. Would like to get a front shock fork, but it soaks up the bumps good, even with full 30 psi pressure in the tires. It doesn't snow here, but do like to take it off road...Little big to put in the X, so need to think about a carrier or something, as I'd like to try it in snow or the trails (mountains) and/or the beach:
I have a Specialized Fatboy. I love it. Numerous upgrades. I'm running the Easton Haven 35 group set, as well as the new XT M8000 component group, geared in 1x11. Race Face Turbine cinch crank with direct mount. I was out for a 10 mile ride yesterday and the conditions were perfect. Nice crusty snow. Some ice in the corners kept things interesting.
Well, it's been 60 degrees and pouring rain here in Ohio for a couple of weeks, a really crappy winter. Any of you guys have any luck with winter yet?
It's like that here too. We had another snowstorm on Saturday, but 60 degrees for two days and all of the snowpack is gone. In fact the local NEMBA told us to stay off the trails because everything is super soft.
