Its the most fun i have had on a bike in years, i look to get out as much as i can when not working or looking after the kids. It was good to get out with wadsy the other day. he had a little go and i could see a fat smile on his face.

for anyone who has not had a go on a fat bike give it a go, they are fun with a capital F and not as slow as you would imagine, they encourage the adventurer in me, always looking to find new routes and places to go. i try to ride over/through things that i would have got off or riden round on most normal mtb's.

i still understand that they are a bit like marmite, some love them and some dont :wink:

stubbsy :D

got one, black ops necromancer, took it into the hills today :shock: , totally amazing, did everything my other bikes did but better. you do feel the bumps on a fast dowhill but mud and puddles are nothing :D . best bike i ve had so far even rolls well on tarmac. my sister could nt keep up on the single track and she is youger and fitter than me and usually leaves me standing. front suspension for these beasts cant be far away, this is a keeper :lol: , long live fat bikes and dont knock it till you try it :P .
