Nah, it's a salsa Fargo, 29er with drop bars and rack mounts, basically a touring MTB.

New tires should be here soon....always a long wait with new fat stuff, but pre ordered and already being used in the USA...as pictured.

Also have some fatbike sized mudguards being sent out this week, there extra wide so should be great!

In the meantime, I'm waiting on these!

Surly Lou and bud....4.8"

Don't worry, that's dust, not the colour!

Had a few issues with my body since last weeks charity ride, sore back and knee has stopped me riding much, even walking has been hard!

Today I went out for a slow beach ride, 18 miles 95% off road with a mixture of sand, gravel, huge rocks, tidal mud, grass etc.....no issues for the fatbike running 5psi.

Amazing how a little beach ride can cheer you up


I remember asking about sizing before chap and I think you said you had a 20 inch bike but this picture makes the bike look to small??

the days are shorter now, autumn has set in with night time temps down to 3c and the colder days are making it hard to get out on the bike after a cold day at work!

Image

i must carry on though, bikes are my only release and my life has been better for the extra miles this year....

yesterday i popped over to the north east coast, despite being run down and weak, it was great to force a chilly 16 mile ride out on the beach, from tynemouth to blyth and back.

shorts will be getting left at home soon...

That´s a seriously cool bike you´ve got there 8)

I´m wondering though how your Electron pedals stand up with beatings?
It´s some kinda plastic, isn´t it?
