Weekly Dose of Fat – 01-06-12

First dose of fat for the new year and there’s lots of fat-bike stuff going on out there in this, the first week of 2012. A couple of new fat-bike components made it to market. Both 45 NRTH Hüsker Dü tires and Surly Marge Lite Rims are available in limited quantities. Hit up your local shop if you’ve been waiting ’cause they are going fast! Welcome to 2012 hope it treats you well!
