    At $1,500 it's pretty ridiculous to buy a bike for just sand or snow. Also, it's not SSFG so it's probably better to start this up in the general, commuter, or mtb subforums.

    If you have to ask, you don't need it.

    This is the purpose, if you ask me.

    Wrong. It can be built up ss or with gears. Its not ridiculous if you have to deal with a lot of sand or snow.

    "what's the point of _____. i don't get why anyone would need ____"

    10% of the people on this forum actually NEED their bike(s), the other 90% just WANT their bike. (not that they don't need A bike, just don't need whatever badass track/road/DH/etc bike they ride)

    because it's fun, it's badass, and i always want one more bike than i have. that's why.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    As long as the trails aren't too rough. A local guy has one and I've replaced his freehub body three times so far.

    A friend of mine has a SS Pugsley and it is pretty awesome. Don't knock it till you try it.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    That's like asking... "Why do 29ers exist?"

    Because road tires are too skinny!!

    DUH! DOUBLE DOWN!

    If you've ever been wallowing through soft snow, struggling to hold your line and spinning along at 4 mph on flat level trail, and had someone on a fat tired bike cruise blissfully by riding on top of what you're sinking into, you'd understand.

    There's a growing number of singletrack mountain bikers who ride them here. They pack out the summer trails with snowshoes, then ride; some people just refuse to learn to ski.
