    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ8jxym_-X8

    7:15am this morning. Obligatory witch's tit reference.



    Fat (bike) fuel.



    Happiness is sunrise. Also, kickstands are for *******.



    Facicles!



    Home by noon. With even more respect for people who do things like the Arrowhead 135.

    looks like miserable fun ...

    I'd love to justify a fat bike for sand riding down here in FL... if I lived up north i'd prob build one... still think a fat front bike would work for our trails around here...

    Phat!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Did our first group ride last night. Even more crazy fun.

    I gotta say, I was on the fence for years on one of these. I don't regret pulling the trigger for even a second.

    So much more versatile than just snow. Really great in rough stuff that doesn't even qualify as a trail. Super comfy with those big fat tires.

    The only thing that might hold me back from just riding this thing all the time are the expensive tires. Kind of hoping the price goes down a bit as this trend takes off.

    I bet the trend will take off, they are just too cool, I got a place in Maine by the Water, I can see using one all day along deserted beaches and woods, back home in the Adirondacks going along the old logging trails ( maybee a great tool for Bow hunting...) only problem I see is you can probably get lost easy by yourself, gotta have a GPS.
