All the things you can do with a Fat Bike

Seems slow in here for new ideas so I thought I'd start a thread for all the applications people have found for their fat bikes. Pics are encouraged.
Some people bike and fish, gravel race, downhill mtb... I've seen some hunter e fatbike ideas and even bikes that carry surf boards.

One use I have for mine is off road touring or bike packing and will be heading out overnight in a couple of weeks.



Another use is going to be biking to remote dive sites. As is I can carry my freedive gear and with a small trailer I'll build I should be able to carry a tank for SCUBA as well.

So... What are people doing out there?

Free diving with a fat bike

I plan to sew a couple of panniers to hold the fins down the road

Probably because this is just about the slowest sub-forum here. I think the only one that's slower is "Fixed Gear Freestyle" or whatever the heck it is.

This fat bike fad might be about to fizzle...

I wonder...

I don't know why because I am fascinated by the versatility of a fat bike for off road. The ability to go from 4.5 to 3" on a 26 to 29r rim allows a lot for the cost of two wheelsets.
I paid $700 for my Fatboy used which at 4.5" opens up sand/snow and moderate downhilling and if I add a 29r 3" wheelset it opens up off road touring ala' Surly ECR which retails for $2700CAD. Basically 2 bikes in one to cover the spectrum of off road use. It's a pretty cool platform in many ways.
