This is more of a road bike for me anyway. The forks are usually locked out while I ride rural (very rural) paved woods roads.

Try one of the new Specialized bikes with the inertia valve. Hardtail till it hits a bump, then it goes squishy.

Best of both worlds

The Epic S-Works I rode a few summers ago at a demo day was absolutely amazing. (course, it should be for $10k!)

You should ride a new one. They changed a couple things in the valve, starting '11. I nearly bought an '10 Epic Marathon 29er, but, the valve felt clunky, to me, and I wanted a bit more travel. My '11 Stumpy valve is much smoother activation.

This is what I ended up with.

that turned out really nice !!

Took my Pugsley out the other day.




Got to love any bike that puts this on the frame.

How do you like the wheels/tires on your Pugsley? That's a cool looking bike!

I just researched that Pugsly a little, and watched a couple of videos on YouTube, and that looks like one cool bike. Have fun on it!

Super-fat-tire bikes are a LOT of fun.

Cool you got one of the old purple ones. Mine was too.
My brother has it now and I have a Fatback because I know the owner of Speedway Cycles and it's about 8lbs lighter.
Oh, and I just put a Big Fat Larry on the front and gained almost another inch in circumference! Have fun, Mark H.

Great pics, Ian and Wadester. Where was yours taken, Wadester?

Since I hang my fat tire bike up in the garage for the summer, and have a bunch of other bikes to ride, I keep forgetting to take it out and find some sand!
