I'd definitely give one a try - can see the appeal.

That looks ace. It reminds me very much of my first bike without stabilisers that had balloon like tyres about 3 inches wide, it cornered like a good 'un. This looks like the adult version! :D Gotta get a go!

It's bikes like these that turn you into a kid again, when I first got into mountain bikes I lusted after chunkier tires, it was great fun throwing the bikes around and through everything.

Doing the same now with fatbikes :D

Couldn't fault the mukluk to be honest, very good value for money and also a good handling bike.

If I still had it, I'd be using it just as much 8)

have you punctured a fat bike yet? Are they more prone to them? Must be a bugger to pump up again out in the field with a minipump! :shock:

Never had one, though tubes are thick, as are tread on some tires.

They reckon 100 pumps to stick 5psi in.....

Your mate Bruce must be near me. The place where he was swimming at the back of the castle is about 2 miles from my old gaff.
Maybe I could cadge a shot on his if I see him about. :lol:
