    Don't be scared. You will lose, most of us do. CX is a blast, but a total ass kicking. I like the six hour mountain bike races, they are the only type I can place near the top in.

    Sounds like the Cogburn would be perfect for you. If you want to save a few bucks, look for an older Pugsley with the double walled rims. They are just about bombproof but heavy. Most of the newer...

    Above 60F don't worry about it. You will still be soaked with sweat inside a rain jacket. If it is colder I will either wear a merino wool jersey or a fleece pullover with tights.

    Your gonna have to do some road riding if you want to get fit. Mountain bikers who don't ride road have no legs or lungs. You don't have to go crazy, an hour a day 4 days a week makes trail rides...

    If you are running that wide of a cassette don't bother with the triple unless you plan on a lot of trailer pulling or loaded touring. A compact double with 34/50 rings is a good setup. I run a...

    Your frame says 130mm spacing on the website, so you need a road wheel. Shimano 9 speed road and mountain are interchangeable on the rear. How much range do you need? If you keep it under 32...

    Both of the site you listed gave me a headache. Best roadbar they had was the Ritchey Classic bend. Try shopping at Velo Orange or Rivendelle.

    Another good thing about nine speed is that your local bike shop mechanic may have take offs that he will trade for a six pack.

    Those trigger shifters won't work with drop bars. Go 9 speed with bar end shifters on Nitto Noodle or Rando bars. This combo has worked for awhile and will continue to.

    I have tried most of the dirt drops available. I wanted to like the Nitto dirt drop, but it was too narrow. I have this one on my Fargo now in a 50cm and it seems promising. Will get a couple more...

    Have you thought about a rackless bikepacking type of setup? just a roll bag on the handlebars, large saddle bag and maybe a frame bag. Then you won't be stuck with just one bike, ride whichever you...

    Handlebar bag and a medium seat bag should be all you need. There are some reasonably priced options at Velo Orange.

    That bike should work. There are no guarantees with machine built wheels, some last and some don't. Get a good wheelbuider to tension them before riding to help the odds in your favor. Get rid of...

    I think it will do fine. I am only about 210, but I beat the crap out of my Cross check for years before I had rear wheel issues; jumps, drops, rocks, trees, loaded touring, and hopping cattleguards...

    You will get twice the punctures on the fatbike as with a regular bike. More tire on the ground and the casings are pretty thin because so many riders select tires based on weight. Even so I have...

    Are you going to beat it on trails or road ride it? Surly stock builds are pretty stout. You should be fine, but at your weight any machine built rear wheel is a gamble.
