    My Beast

    OK, here are a few pics, the Beast alone, and two of the Beast along side of my 26 inch ProFlex MTB. Its doesnt do well at all in mud, snow, water, sand, or off road.....OK, maybe very light off roading but anything more than that is so much work its no fun. The Beast is a GREAT cruiser, plain and simple, thats what it does and it does it well! Its also a GREAT head turner and conversation starter! I took it to the flea market this past weekend and so many people stopped me to ask questions it took me half hour to get to the end of the first isle! I totally love this bike!

    Not personally, a few guys over another forum have tried and thats what they say, problem is the tires are so huge that all the above mentioned sticks to the tires, then to the frame, then to everything else! specially with low pressure, if there was an engine doing the job of moving this thing it would be "all good," but the human engine just cant do it, for a little while yeah, but try a few miles and let me know how far ya get, go on, give it a try for yourself. I knew what it was when I bought it and wouldnt think of useing it for anything other than its intended use.

    Oh no, I know it takes work (and low gearing) to move over that kind of stuff. Very cool bike.

    Big and heavy, but def not a piece of crap.....well yeah, I guess if ones used to buying all the top name brands of EVERYTHING it would be considered a piece of crap. I grew up poor, and all but two of my bikes as a kid were toy store "crap" but I always had fun and appreciated the bikes, even when my dad started making the big bucks and bought us a Schwinn Apple Krate and a Lemon peeler, my brothers rode them around while I rode my Kia cycle muscle bike.....my choice.

    I have a review in Alt Bikes, "the walgoose is loose". Very fun bike if you want an unusual cruiser, lots of attention, and every one has to touch the tires.

    Grease everything.

    My bike was the opposite, it wasnt scratched, bent, or otherwise molested by FedEx. I cleaned and repacked the headset and front hub because they were both way tight, after re-adjusting both headset and front hub I repacked them as I wanted to be sure everything would work properly.

    Good, the bike has been a lot fun so far. Not a lot of miles, just over 50 and the only thing I still want to change is are the pedals. They certainly are head turners.

    Maybe QBP will adjust their fat bike pricing a bit. It's not apples-apples of course. But two bills versus fifteen-ish for a Pug/Moonlander/Mukluk? Yeah, the Beast could adequately scratch the itch for a lot of folks interested in fat bikes.

    No sir. Neither does the frame or fork.

    I must admit, I did grow up having the best of the name brand bicycle parts because my summers were spent working construction. My brother and I ended up with a huge check at the end of the Summer break. We built up custom bikes, bought custom water skis, wore the clothes we wanted to. $250 went a long way back in the 70's.
