Where are my fat bike riders? Man, I just picked one up two weeks ago...and I LOVE IT! I used to amateur race MTB, and had a ton of fun. My MTB is still in the garage...and I actually just upgraded the tires and brakes again. In the last two years I have switched to road bikes...and have really enjoyed pounding out some very quick multi-mile trips on a much more efficient ride. Moving once again into winter I wanted this year to keep riding...and so began my search into fat tire bikes. I finally pulled the trigger on one...and even though there has not been snow yet, I have not spun a wheel on my road bike in the last two weeks, and I don't see pulling the MTB down off the rack. I love riding my fatty! The best part is that I live on gravel, and close to "level B" roads...so I can just hop on at my front door and go! No more loading up the bike for a trip down the gravel to find some pavement. Yes, my distances are less, yes my pace is slower (just over half), but I am having a ton of fun, and keeping my cardio up as we turn into winter. What a blast! PS...running around 20PSI and already had a flat from a thorn...normal to have higher flat tire rates of a fatty? I already bought several tubes to keep her running...just wondering if that is normal to get one so quickly?
