A great radio report from NPR on fat bikes in Fairbanks Alaska...... link

Welcome to Alaska where winter is cold and bikes are fat

the story is readable or listenable.

Fatbikes are going mainstream this season.

Last year, after a big blizzard I rode my fat bike over a big frozen lake and saw two other fat bikes on it, and one more fat bike on the streets during the ride home. They are definitely going mainstream, and it has gotten a little past the early adopter stage.
