    Saw some REALY fat tires on a Surly

    This morning I saw a surly bike with fat tires. I don't mean MTB tires. I mean fat like the forward tire of a cruiser motorcycle. I don't see how the frame/fork can even hold them.
    Was I imagining things?

    I ride my Pugsley year round and have three wheelsets: 26x4.0's on Large Marge, 26x3.0 Kenda Flames on Large Marge and 29x2.35 Big Apples on 29er Snow Cat offset rims. Currently I have the 29x2.35's on it.

    The Surly 1x1 can fit non-offset Large Marge rims with up to a 3" tire. You have to saw off the canti bosses and ride with discs though.
    As bike riders we're the abused children of the road. It's no wonder we're not nice to each other.

    Somebody rode one of those to work recently. I picked it up, and it wasn't as heavy as I thought it would be. No studs, but I heard the owner has no hills to climb on their commute.

    The snow was just right to keep the bike upright. I ride it everyday with the 29x2.35 Big Apples and wish I had studs on some parts of my daily ride but most of the time I have no ice to deal with. The last few days I walked it over a pedestrian bridge that goes over railroad tracks that had frozen ice and snow but it's only about 100 ft long were it iced over.

    Cool bike there, but I would put a seat on it before riding.

    I have a Surly Karate Monkey set up as fixed a gear.

    I ride it with Schwalble 2.35 Big Apple tires in the summer and Nokian 294's this winter.

    Although puny compared to a Pugsley, people comment on my tires all the time.

    I like the performance of the Big Apples.
    Amazing tires.

    I like the safety and confidence the Nokian 294's give me on ice, but they have an unreal amount of inertia, especially on acceleration.

    Schwalbe doesn't fluff up their tire sizes. I have to squeeze my Big Apple 2.35" tires through the Karate Monkey brake bosses.
