Guess you owed me a brucing.
I know some of you guys do bicycle frequently, have any of you ridden a fat tire bike, or currently own one?
Just curious, ... Nashbar has a couple on sale now for drasically reduced prices, like over half off, and I was thinking about one for soggy weather and winter use... they do weigh a ton tho... I own an older Trek M/T that is very light, and strong, but not fun in muck and snow...And it has no suspension at all... from what I read those fat tire bikes are a pretty plush ride with this balooon tires... just not sure how much more effort they are to ride with the weight involved, I.e. up hills.
I've got a Pugsley. That one is definitely on the heavy side. For more modern fatbikes most of the extra weight is in the tires and tubes. Upgrading the tires and switching to tubeless can save a bunch of weight.
I have not ridden a regular MTB but I have had my Pugsley on most of the trails in NEO including Westbranch and Mohican. The fat tires do smooth out the small bumps, roll over obstacles and provide great traction. The drag is not as nearly bad as you would expect. The fat tires provide some cush but it is undamped suspension so they can be bouncy. Tire pressure is key, too high and you bounce to low and it feels like they roll on the corners. Just right and you feel like they will truck over anything without losing traction. Winter is fun because you can go places you wouldnt expect a bike to be capable. However riding in the snow is a huge aerobic exercise and speeds are slow.
Those Nashbar bikes are really cheap. Looks like a good value.
Starting a thread for those of us in the mid/south east region of the state.

Carl did you stay and eat? Nevermind, looks like you just live down the road from it.
Nice taggin' Pete, must have been too far south for the NEO taggers.
I was one car behind someone on a GS headed north on 93 at 39.. He kept checking his rearview mirror but headed on North thru the light without stopping.. guess my bfb wasn't adv looking enough for him to stop and say hi.
