With the availability of ready-to-ride fat-bikes, thousands of new fat-bike riders have joined the fat-bike scene over the past couple of years. New fat-bike riders are joining the fray daily and many of them have questions with few experienced local riders to help them out. This Holiday Season is sure to add even more fat-bikers to the mix! This series is designed to answer a few of the basic questions but, more importantly, it is an opportunity for our fat-bike community as a whole to step up and help a brother (or sister) out. Join in the conversation, add value and keep it civilized, make a contribution!
Some of the topics we will address include:
- Frame Types
- Winter Riding
- Beach Riding
- Sand Riding
- Drivetrain Care
- Internally-Geared Hubs
Our goal with the project is to build a repository of information, not only for first-time fat-bike owners but, with the participation of the more experienced among us, a useful, ongoing conversation about fat-bikes and the passion we have for them.
If you have a topic you’d like for us to open up a dialog on, please send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to cover it.
Here is a conversation starter! We’ve all heard the question from the uninitiated “What’s up with those big tires?” How do you answer that question? Discuss in the comments below!
