I should probably put some sort of #bikeporn warning at the beginning of this little Fat-Tandem Centerfold from Quiring Cycles. This all started when one of our readers reached out in an email to me and asked who could make him and his bride a fat tandem? That made me think about Scott and Christina Quiring […]
This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday comes to us from Justin VanAlstyne. Justin’s rides out of Fort Collins, Colorado and he’s a WW veteran. It’s nice to think about a cold sunny Winter ride when it’s a hundred and seven degrees outside. It’s not even the fattest day of the year (here in the Northern Hemisphere) and […]
Our amigos at HED Cyclingare launching a new gravel wheelset called the Emporia GC3 Performance. The new wheelset, which borrows heavily from HED’s top-end Emporia GC3 Pro, is a Performance-level carbon gravel wheel, designed and handmade by HED in Minnesota. Like the Emporia GC3 Pro, this new wheelset features a 30mm rim depth and 26mm […]
I’ve been lusting after REEB’s Hooptie since it premiered a couple of years back. The Hooptie is a blend of a mid/long-travel hardtail along with a classic Klunker. After the editorial board gave the green light to launch Project Klunkedelic (this here series of articles), I contacted Tim at REEB to see if we could […]

A quality Carbon Fiber Wheelset can significantly improve the ride feel of a fat-bike. Reducing rotational mass on a fat-bike is more important than say on a road bike because of the size (and weight) of fat-bike tires. Lightweight wheels provide a similar feeling that you get when you go tubeless but, by my estimation, […]
Trevor Hughes sent us a portrait of his son with his KHS Raptor Plus Bike. Dad souped up The lad’s ride with a Race Face stem and bars, electric green HT flat peddles, kid size Spank lock on grips and a Lizard Skin chain guard. Fat-bikes always make me feel like a kid again and who […]

We’re experiencing a little instant Summer in the Big Whiskey. I hope it works out better than instant coffee. I remember as a kid trying to get up early and catch Tom Slick or the Banana Splits on the tube with a big bowl of fruit loops in my lap. Well, Foto Gordo is sort […]

Nobody loves a good four season fat-bike video more than your tio gomez! Today’s video was shot near some of the canyons in Socorro NM. They say that it’s groovy fat bike territory with miles and miles of sandy trails. It’s the kind of place where if you want to go and explore this area […]

Is the State Bicycle Co. Klunker the deal of the Summer? Somewhere back around 2015, I saw a story about the Asylum Hank that I ride today. I brought it up during one of our early Dose of Fat Podcasts and ordered one in early ’16. That bike gets as much attention as my fat […]

A Little About Me and What I Ride I got hooked on the whole fat bike thing in 2012 when a friend slapped a Pugsley fork and a Surly Nate on the front of my SS 29’er. I rode the shit out of that bike with my friends, a fellow BBR Test Pilot Julio who […]
Spring has sprung and my daily rides are rife with the delightful scent of plant sex. The hummingbirds have returned to our garden and overnight temps, well they’re still below freezing, but that’s what makes us Northerners tough and keeps palm trees from growing.

I’ve been on somewhat of a quest over the past five years to seek out the best frame bag for my Fatback Corvus FLT named Ten Beers. This is the fourth frame bag that I’ve fitted to this bike. The last two bags have featured precise bolt-on attachments that led me to upgrade. I thought […]
