Hallelujah!

The Fatback came to life on Easter Sunday. Coincidence?

I think a red bashring is a necessity.

Reflective bits

The look-Ma-no-hands pic.

Raw frame with clear coat...industrial chic.

Brownie Lake rogue path off the Cedar Lake Trail.

This is the kind of paved trail I used to avoid....

With the mtb. trails closed until things dry up, we've been pawing around local wooded patches and either side of the RR tracks to find some interesting riding. For a fat lady, she climbs like a dream and she's at her best on gravel, sand, grass and crappy trails. She hikes up her pantlegs and barrels over anything in her way. The hubs = effortless. This was THE only frame left in my size late in the season. Lucky me. I'm liking it.

Nice OB nice!!!
CONGRATS!!!!
Nice thing about a "Fat Bike" you don't need a trail this time of year, or the fall. Once things green up, the no trail woods riding gets a little more difficult. By then it's fall ;)

Peace

Thanks Joboo -- it's waaaay fun! I'm looking forward to riding it in snow, but I'm more than happy to wait 5-6 months!

BBW? Big Beautiful Wheels. That thing is cool looking.

Joboo said...

yes, the snow can stay away awhile now!!
you'll truly wonder why you waited so long, once the snow flies again!!!
we're due for a trip south sometime soon, maybe i'll have you and WD show me where you guys ride!!

This is the only thing I've seen that makes me think of riding anything but a road bike. This really looks beyond cool.

The Old Bag said...

Joboo, give us a holler if you're thinking of heading this direction!

Vito said...

Wait a minute! You got one too? That is one awesome bike. The red bash guard will look cool :)

The Old Bag said...

Vito, I couldn't let WD be havin' fun without me!

Badger -- this is one fun bicycle...it goes anywhere, trail or no trail, and feels like a full suspension bike. The hubs and BB just like to keep rolling. Sure, it's a heavy bicycle, but it feels effortless.
