The winner of the caption contest from last week is Woody! We’ll be sending the Wood-Man out a sweet pair of 45NRTH Wool Socks and the obligatory fat dash bike dot com sticker pack for his winning entry. This has been another week of gorgeous fall color above our secret underground test track and fat-bike proving grounds here in the big whiskey. With all the travel we’ve been doing, it’s nice to spend some time riding the home trails for a few days. It won’t be long till the snow flies and our event calendar is really starting to hum with Races, Demo’s and Festivals. We posted big news from Sandman on their 2013 fat-bike line this week and there’s more big fat-bike news in the pipe-line, so stay tuned for more fat-bike innovation. We’ve posted a few pictures on Facebook of bike shop floors filled with 2013 models. If you’re in the market for a fat-bike, get to your local bike dealer and reserve your fatty now, because inventory is going to sell out fast!
