Weekly Dose of Fat – 2-21-14

weekly-dose-02-21-14

Andrew from Minnesota took this photo in -30 degree weather! Found some open water and beautiful trumpeter swans!

Another busy weekend in fat-bike.com land. I guess that should come as no surprise this time of year!

Gomez is at the industry trade show, Frostbike, gathering the latest info on upcoming fatbikes and related products. Frostbike is a great event to get a forecast of what might be coming down the pike for the 2014/2015 season.

We got in a Boo Bikes Alubooyah Fatbike for testing and will get a First Look at it next week. Meanwhile, Mr. Jim is taking it up to Minneapolis for the weekend for some initial impressions.

Several events are happening this weekend, check out our Fatbike Event Calendar!

The travel to bring you all the fat-bike news we can uncover continues over the next several weeks with Sven, Gomez and the rest of our Bike Black Ribbon Test Crew attending, among other events, The Pugsley World Championships in Decorah, IA, The Sweaty Yeti in WI, The Fatbike Birkie where fat-bike.com is throwing down for the after party, then it is on to the North American Handmade Bike Show in Charlotte!

    Thanks for linking my disastrous outback attempt. Hopefully my personal embarrassment can serve others well! 🙂

    Andrew’s 907 is looking nice, especially with those carbon HED wheels. And are those the new Dillenger 5” tires?

    The 20 years of being a shop wrench immediately noticed the QR facing down…I know it probably shouldn’t matter on snow but it’s like a fashion model with a booger in their nose!

      I was cold.
