Bikes away getting a nice shiny hope evo rear hub fitted, so in the mean time I'm using my hybrid bike.

Bruce made another vid from our recent coast ride, showing the big fat larry tire in action....enjoy.

quite a few fatbike owners end up selling a few bikes after they own a fatbike, as they tend to take over duties of the other bikes.....

im down to just 3 bikes now.....hybrid (cardio, genreal fitness, loan bike to others)....single speed (hack bike or spare) and the fatbike....all offroad duties, xc, mountains, beach, snow, trail centres, exploring etc....

It's been a long week without the fat one.....but it's finally back at last.

Hew hope pro evo 2 rear hub, XTR chain and a wee service....all is healthy in the fat camp.

Big thanks to dave at DC cycles Ulverston for the work 8)

Seeing as I was in the lakes I decided to get it sanded up in no time!
