Wink ...also Demo'd a "Fat Bike" yesterday!

Yesterday was our annual MTB Demo at one of the State Parks. Went there to drool & dream about a new $2000+ MTB and while I was there I got to try out one of these,..


Fat Bike!

It was Freaking Awesome!!!! I took it off the trail and into an area that had been cut n bulldozed! I was amazed at how easy this bike was to pedal in shit that would have had me bouncing off my MTB left n right!! It just peddled right over ruts n bumps, rocks and even 6 & 7 inch logs!! Rolled right over them without having to hop the front tire or even stand in the saddle!!!!!

I swear, I never even had to stand up on the peddles once & I was riding in some REALLY rough shit!!! They're made for riding in sand, mud and wait for it,.... "SNOW"!!!!
I really want to get one so I can keep riding the trails next winter!!!

Also, as a Nature/Outdoor photographer,.. add a couple of good racks and I could haul my photo gear just about anywhere with half the effort!!!!

These things look like they are a BLAST!!!!

Anyone else have/Rode one? Post a pic!!!
