Nice pics Rich. Starting to fancy a fat bike myself.
Did the Cross Bay walk the other weekend from Arnside to Kents Bank. Definately doable on one of these.

I was in shop today and got chatting to the guy who works there and he showed me a set of Pugsley wheels he is making up for a customer.

They're bloody huge!!!

this bike is getting used daily, but has still not done many miles (160 as i type this)......brakes are now run in and awesome, nothing has come loose or needed a tweak, so really happy.


its been a great month getting to know the bike, and im glad i bought another fat bike, its been used for all my riding in october, so its seen sun, sand, sea and trails.......

few snaps of today showing the autumn flooding and higher than usual tides, i got wet feet today!

im going to enjoy the next couple of months with this bike, getting out regardless of the state the trails are in.....this bike doesnt mind riding through water, mud, bogs etc.....plus it gives me practice and i can get to know what its going to be like compared with the surly moonlander i have coming in december with its huge 4.7'' tires and 100mm rims.........(far right on next couple of pics along side the 4.0'' nate tire and 80mm rims)
