I'll get the ball rolling with a pic of my Moonie as it stands just now.

Stem change up next. I have 3 new stems so will try them out over the next few rides and settle on the one I like the best.:)

Also just finished building a new front wheel for my monkey. Hope hub with 42mm wide rim! Gives the tyre a little bit of extra cusion.:lol:

Here is a great video that shows what these fatbikes do when you live in Scotland and not Alaska.

I can't take credit for the video but I do feature in it and I did film a couple of other scenes. 8)

Velo is building a fat bike of sorts too, I can't watch that vid on my iPad but seeing and riding 3 of them at the weekend convinced me.
