New (fat) bike day

New bike day by reverborama, on Flickr

Kona Wo (XL)
Finally decided to go fat. I've use a 29'er with 55mm studs for the last couple of winters but I wanted something that could go OVER the snow. And it does! I think winter will be a little more fun.

CONGRATS!...and yes...I'm jealous...I just got back from the LBS where I was drooling over a specialized fatboy with those necromancers as they would be just as welcome over the sugar sand beachs down here as the snow up there...again...Congrats...real nice Bike!

Fat bikes are in! I rented one at the provincial park where we were camping last summer and it was a blast.
The LBS that I build wheels for is introducing their own line of fat bikes this coming year (they have had their own bike brand for 30 years), and I am to build the wheels for them.
The fad won't last forever, but I'm sure fat bikes are here to stay as part of the cycling picture. They are just too much fun not to.

Our kids got me a green Mongoose Beast for Christmas last year. That bike is a lot of fun.
