Shouldn’t that be “Fatteyville, W.V?”

Awesome shot! You need green/black/white gloves and a new goggle band though to complete the look.

Everything is better with wheelies!

I wonder what kind of downtube ‘fender’ that is?

i think it’s time to see some deep alpine snow fat-freeriding

@Greg, looks like it might be a PDW Dave’s Mud Shovel.

I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me, the radio reminds me of my home far away. And driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday. Country roads, take me home to the place I belong.

Unless your snow is crusty enough to keep you on top of it, you’re better off with non-fat wheels.

I don’t think folks know this.

It’s not that common to find snow that’s thawed and refrozen into a form that’ll keep any bike on top of it. That’s why fat bikes evolved for riding on snowmobile trails.

@Ol’ Shel’, do you even ride a fat bike? Here in the Upper Midwest we ride on plenty of singletrack.
