Ec90

Me too. I had ordered this exact saddle for my fat bike (that has been sporting a b17). I have the Specialized Power on a road bike, which I am hoping the EC90 is a fair knock off of. I've done rides...

Rim Width Versus Tire

There are tons of fat bikes out there with 80-90mm rims and 4" tires. Surly's rims for their 3.8" Nates stock were on 82mm rims. I see on 45NRTH's website for the Dillinger 4's, they specify that...

This old person rides fat in the snow

I mostly ride road/gravel bikes....when there isn't snow on the ground. So, for the past couple of months, I've been riding a Pugsley....definitely different, and really do love the change. Have...

As wih anything, these may still not be enough for you, however, they work for me down to -15 actual, or like last night -7 actual with a windchill of -30. Since I'm on a fat bike this time of year,...

IIRC Specialized wants you to use a seat collar system. You'd attach the rack to the seat collar with rack eyelets. Problem solvers makes one, axiom, trek, etc.

winter base layers

No cotton garments. Was wearing synthetic only. They wick for me, but I can still feel the damp. Was in Costco last weekend. Don't normally look at their clothing offerings, but low and behold,...

Base Layer

Um no. I meant base layer. No way would pantyhose do a thing for me on rides where actual temp is below 0 F. Merino "leggings" or base layer, maybe under my winter cycling over pants.

I'm having a good time on my fat bike, not sure I'd want it as my only bike though. I previously used a hybrid as a winter bike, and just left the studded tires on it for that purpose. Still, there...

i suspect youíre right. It isnít much real estate. I think Iíll go with the wool base layer instead.

Ladies Base Layer Question

I think I have an ok winter cycling clothing scheme, but always room for improvement. Perhaps due to my smaller size relative to prior years, my arse is frequently cold when riding in the low 20's...

PDW Fenders

Not full coverage, but would at least keep a person from eating a lot of trail spray, and they're inexpensive. PDW (https://ridepdw.com/collections/mountain-and-fat-biking)

@Hyno Toad. Not currently a fat bike rider, but very tempted. For most fat bike races/events in MN, would studded tires, both front and back be recommended, or is front studded enough?

Rear or Front Rack

If you want to continue using your panniers, you'd either need to pursue another rear rack, or one that offers a front platform to hold them off the wheel, as lowrider front racks like Tubus dont...

WTB Exposure 32's

I've been curious about these. What is their real life measurement? I've still got a lot of miles left in some Compass 32's that measure out at 32.7 and 33.7 on the same 20m internal width rims,...

C'Dale Quick

I have the men's version of the Quick. Bought it as a gravel/winter bike. Pretty much only use it for winter riding now, but it is a very capable hybrid. Aside from the saddle and color, there is...

Wheels

November Bicycles offers that very wheelset in a 24/28 or a 28/28. Honestly, I can't imagine anyone would notice 4 extra spokes....you'd really have to be sensitive. I did have a set of disc wheels...

Mnt or Hybrid

You could get a rigid 29er or 27+ bike also, though most will come geared as a 1x11 or 1x12 anymore it seems. I've ridden the C&O on a hybrid with 700x35 tires on it. Trail was mostly dry, though I...
