Motobecane FB4 Pro (FatBike) - UnBox, Build, First Ride, & Snow Fun!

I ordered this beasty back in October and it arrived about ten days ago. I have already ridden it to work (crazy I know), in the rain, on the trails, and
in the snow. Pretty good shake down for about 10 days of actually having it.



It really is much more fun than it should be.

Just Windows Movie Maker and the Free Music Archive.

Here is another one of me commuting to work (yes, crazy). If you hang out until the 2min mark you can watch me run some staircases at the university library (shhhhh!).

12 miles round trip. Here is a better snowy-er ride that includes dogs, snow in the wind, a crash (darned tire rut), GPS & snow art,...
and my favorite part at the end as I helped a stuck motorist.
