Tonight I manged to get out and join the LBS ride that was in the neighborhood.
I have been fortunate enough to have yet another Fatback come my way. That's 3 in 3 weeks.
This pink steed was offered to me for an extended test ride with the option to buy at a very fair price.
Gypsy Nicholas told me what I should have know already, that I ought to thin out my stable in order to add a fatbike. If you are looking for a quality used bike give me a shout, I've got a few that I'm looking to part with.
The ride tonight was great. A dozen fine folks came together to roll through the woods on fatbikes. Conversations were pleasant and effortless and a few eye catching bike bits came out of the woodwork.
First was a pair of powder coated Surly Rabbit Hole/Knard wheels. These bits were not on a Krampus, but rather on a Pugsley (NeckRomancer if I'm not mistaken). Looked like a fun set of wheels to have for a fat bike, might have to do something like this some time if I should choose to acquire the pink Fatback.
The other thing I spotted on the ride was these wheels on a Salsa Mukluk:
I didn't get a chance to chat with the owner, but I did do some serious gawking.
Good gosh, look at the size of those cutouts!
This ride was ready for business
There was a pair of spokes, parallel to each other between each set of cut outs.
I love the creative thinking and the willingness to just go ahead and do it, the wheels seemed to be working just fine this evening.
