    I ride a fatty, Rubber Side Down, a Canadian startup company. This bike is a mountain crusher with great geometry. These pics are in the Tonto Nat'l Forest around the Mogollon Rim.

    Not super fat but love my ruddy comp, reasonable in price and will take some abuse..

    Mongoose | Ruddy Comp

    Got it online on closeout last year, 24lbs, for the price they are great, half what other bikes were with the same components....

    I've been riding a Surly Pug Ops for a few years. Initially assembled a frame set to go ride part of the Colorado trail. Overall its a great way to go but they are very slow and take a lot of energy to ride when you are covering long distances every day. I probably wouldn't use the fat tire machine for another bike packing trip where I had a lot of ground to cover in a set time.

    You either like bacon - or you're wrong!
    I met a guy who just retired, said it was the most fun he'd ever had riding a bike in his whole life.
    I'm thinking seriously of getting one. I haven't ridden in years, and its showing. :(

    My daily driver/winter beater, mind you its seen some different parts and studded tires since the picture.

    about 17F (-8C) this morning, new office is about 15kms (9 miles) each way.

    I run a panier with a rack on the back now, this thing is a cheap department store bike (mongoose hitch) but I've got my monies worth out of it. Have replaced the seat, chain and rear sprocket as well, but I ride it in the ugly weather in Calgary.


    Had it about a year, probably put 2000+ kms on it since I bought it.

    Magnus IE Fat eBike - CitrusCycles.ca
    I went with ebike cause it makes going up the mountain a bit easier. I’m
    no kid any more, but I am at least getting out there. Took an endo
    today, gently, but it was steep and rocky. But I’m loving it!
