Fat Bikes

I recently bought a Fat Bike (mostly) for winter riding/commuting, after 2 years of looking researching and waiting for something in my budget.
I wonder if anyone else is in this forum is riding a Fatty (after all they could be considered a hybrid)?
Also trying to create enough interest for a Fat Bike Forum.

Please reply if:
You Ride a Fat Bike
Are Interested in learning more about Fat Bikes
Would like to see a forum dedicated to Fat Bikes

I thought they were mountain bikes. Not much road componants on them at all. In fact I'm sure that is where they are posted, in the MTB sub-forum

Thought so too - no Fat sub-forum there.

There are some with a bit of "cruiser" geometry, some with drop bars (heavy duty cyclo-cross?), some electrified.
Even a tandem trike.

By definition: a thing made by combining two different elements; a mixture.
