Fat and Sassy...

Rode bikes in the snow again last night. This time after getting 6" of fresh pow in the high country. Not optimal conditions but a good trial for the new set-up; I replaced the Surly Knards with Nates on the Fat Pearl, and that for one has made a helluva difference with traction. Also swapped out the big sweep bar for a mountain riser, and the leverage and power transfer is ten-fold (and mandatory for riding one-gear). I have to say that up until last night I was absolutely hating even the thought of riding fat bikes. I'm a changed man. Last night was one helluva great time! Thanks to the Redstone/REEB/Oscar Blues/TNR/Oddity crew for making it happen. There's no motto like"If it's Tuesday, were riding" to keep a smile on your face.
