Weekly Dose of Fat 4-11-14


Aris has been riding the 11Nine fat-bike suspension fork at Ray’s a lot this winter!

Well, the big news this week was the announcement of the RockShox Bluto along with arrival of several bikes designed to be used with front suspension. We’ll have a first hand look at it REALLY soon.

In other front suspension news I (Sven) have one of the Snozocchi forks from Brad at Eriksen due to arrive today and our long-term 11Nine suspension fork is back as well. Do I smell a front fork shoot out? Fortunately, my Schlick APe was designed for just such a task. And over a year ago! With our trails coming out of winter hibernation a good time is sure to be had by all! Well, at least me!

Another thing the coming of the warmer weather brings is a thinning out of fat-bike specific events. Still time to check out the East Side Epic in Leadville, CO though. Also, if you have an event coming up that features a fat-bike class within another event, get it on our fat-bike event calendar. We don’t put our fat-bikes away for the summer, neither should you!
