Bit of a random one but a summary as I am known to waffle rubbish
Want a mountain bike as don't really own one anymore , in all honestly it's not for retro duties but more playing with mates and getting back to having some fun in the local forest.
Don't know why but I don't really want anything normal or mainstream and have most importantly it needs to be on the cycle to work scheme (good old wife!!')
Now I have been settled on a Singular swift that my local shop said they could put together for a budget single speed build but having a look around for some reason seem drawn to the on-one fatty ?
Now I have to admit I have never seen on or sat on a fatty before but have ridden around a car park on redchilli fat front jones and was very intrigued.
-are they really useable as your only bike?
-what are they limits? Play bike? Proper cross country ride?
-reasonably fit can they keep up happy within group of normal bikes over longer rides?
-the weight must kill you in the end is it noticeable?
-does the grin factor last after novelty ?
