Was checking on the UKFatbikes site what they thought of the ideal bike for Ciaran path etc and predictably they said fat bike but did give a balanced view siting its posssible to ride on anything given time and talent. Being a technophobe and knowing Jamie will ride it on his Pugsley I'm tending toward my half fat plan I've had for ages but not completed thus no pesky air suspension and linkages issues. Just bought a single speed 135mm OLN disc rotor hub for my front wheel in my Surly forks so I'm steps closer to this simple gnarly terrain tamer.
One quote from HTRider on the UK Fatbike site amused me:
Its quite popular with the full face lid and body armour brigade so remember to give each other high fives and say dude a lot when you've finished it
I will be dragging out my sixsixone knee pads, elbow pads, hip pads etc for this one. Kit I seldom wear as theyre a bit restrictive and warm but not breaking myself is a number one importance.
