    Thanks for adding this Sticky.

    Lets start with a drive train question:
    Are you running front & rear derailleurs, rear only (1 x ....), IGH, or single speed?

    Used up your fat tyres ... here is a suggestion for recycling or is simply a statement about your fashion sense?

    I think that's a perfect compromise! If interest picks up, our moderator can always add a new forum.

    For now, the new sticky will do.

    Drive Train

    Drive train 1 x 7 - modifications include: reducing Chainring from 48T to 38T (with proportionate chainring guard), changing freewheel from 14-28 to 14-34. Awaiting 34T inner chainring to allow for manual change to accommodate winter/hilly/heavy load riding.

    Grabbed a single-speed, coaster brake fatty last week. That thing is fun! I was initially concerned by the lack of gears but managed to keep up without too much extra effort.

    Rokon Trailbreaker. 2WD; hollow wheels means it can also float. Boo-yah.

    Was looking over the Lurch Lounge at MTBR forums and they're finding ablot of small but important issues on that BD model.

    And speaking of floating, that's one advantage of a fatbike. Throw it overboard, snag it with a fishing rod and reel it back.

    Definitely planning on one for xmas. Window shopping right now.
