We need FAT Bike forum
 
The title pretty much says it all,

Fat bikes are here to stay. How about it?

Agreed

Show me enough interest that it will work and not just sit there. The only forum I ever created without a strong interest demonstrated was the Adaptive Cycling forum, because I thought it was needed, and still think so. That's a forum that we don't care if it ever makes us a dime, it simply needed to exist due to special needs being addressed there.

Too much specialization kills a forum and the fat tire bikes are used in multiple disciplines.

Thanks for the reply - not sure how to show interest - as you say "used in multiple disciplines" and search results confirm that.

In the interest of those who showed interest ahead of me - threw the idea out to a few forums which I frequent and/or have the potential to apply to Fat Bikes and have create some interest in at least one area:

Perhaps posting fat bike events will help.We also have a vendor in our Goods and Services area who specializes in Fat Bikes. Be discrete though, in promoting the idea so our antispam software doesn't get you on its radar. I have to program exceptions to save a member who falls afoul and gets that antispammer autoban and isn't a spammer and it's time consuming.
