I think that it'll corner just fine in snow, or soft ground, for that matter.
I rather like it..... 8)

Will this work as a fat bike? I thought the main reason for going fat was to get the float which the volumous (is that a word?) tyres provide.

Surely (or should that be Surly :wink: ) just increasing the width of a 29er tyre (or in this case 2 sidebyside) doesnt increase volume, only footprint, which isnt the best thing to do in sketchy conditions.

Just took at the current problems people are having with low profile wide wheels on their cars in the current conditions.

I know they are gaining some traction from the studded tyres but that seems like adding another factor to overcome the traction issue.

I could be wrong though, it wouldnt be the first time.

So you could have 4 punctures :shock: that's a lot of spares you will have to carry.
Looks a nightmare to get the tires off
