Autumn blast on a Fat bike

Postby ansell007 » 28 Oct 2015, 1:12pm

Had a day off work and it was not raining (rare in Wales) so grabbed the bike and headed up to the woods...Plenty of leaves on the ground and was pretty wet and slippery so perfect Fat bike terrain.

I haven't ridden one yet but I'm in the market for a general mountain bike.
Last one was a full suss, riding style is around woods and some long XC ride.

In your opinion can you have a fatbike as a do everything bike or is it a bit too sluggish for heavy rides and more suited to mainly local fun ones?

They look brilliant but I can't help thinking they are going to be a bit knackering when out with your mates on an all day ride...

You can do pretty much anything on them I have done some pretty epic rides on mine and while I admit they are a bit slower you don't notice that much difference they are great in wet conditions as they fly through mud and are so much fun. I have all most disowned my normal mountain bike. I would def invest in one. Glad you enjoyed my video and thanks for putting a link on better then I could do lol

Also consider 29+.... It's a great compromise! (Trek stache 5 or surly krampus) :wink:
