Looking at Coastkids blog and he points out a good inner tube option for fat tyres. He says 21 x 3" motocross inner tubes work fine and upon study I agree and they're a wee bit cheaper but best of all plentifully available 8)



Velo I bought these

Working fine with no problems so far.

If the on-one fatty had rack bosses it would have been a no-brainer for me - I even like the twin top tube design. The mukluk is a good deal but something about the design at the head tube puts me off, the pug is much nicer.



As much as I appreciate the rack mounts on the Pug it wouldn't be a deal breaker. I'd just use frame,bar and saddle bags. Agree though that theres something about the mukluk that doesn't look quite right, cannae put my finger on it though.

The gusset on headtube of mukluk looks pants. combined with bend in downtube. I too like the twin top tubes on the on one. Shame they're not doing f and f only.

Genesis Caribou, coming soon, I'm sure Evans do Genesis. BTW Halfords used to say that they would get any bike in you wanted on the B2W scheme.
