    She's gonna be a beaut! I caught the old-school Shimano pedals too. Got a pair of them on my old Zaskar.

    :ricky what reasons for the curved top and down tubes? Are they curved for artistic flaire, or for some mechanical design advantage that I can't understand?

    Also, I have become enamoured of the "thin gripsters" pedals from VO. They have spikes like the fastway pegs, are super thin, and plenty wide. Grant Petersen is selling them... http://www.rivbike.com/product-p/pe4.htm

    Top tube curved for standover clearance, downtube curved for fork crown clearance.

    I really don't know anything about "fat bikes," so please let me know what makes them so much fun. They do look fun, but I'm curious about the riding experience. :ear

    Oh, and :D I'm not serious. If I were still in Tucson, I'd probably already own one! ...and HappyRiding: black is slimming. So big ole fat tires WILL make anyone's ass look smaller. guaranteed :augie
