Fatty Farm Field Report

The Becker Sewing Bag Contest

This week we award the bag to the best video. Tupper Becker reviewed or entries and chose – Jeff Price, Jeff wins one of our Becker Sewing and Design 40 Below Bags. Congrats, Jeff!

It was a local spin around the walled town of Conwy which is just a couple of miles from home. The castle and town walls in the video date back to the 1280’s after being built by the English king to show his power within Wales. Google it, there’s some very interesting history there…..

You may have noticed I’m wearing the Yeti Von Evil shirt, fits great, looks better 🙂

Next week Tupper has assigned an Essay Contest. That’s write the written word and shall be judged by the fat-bike radio staff for originality, flavor and fat-bike content. Extra credit will be given to essays that mention gnomes and the role they play in fat-bikeculture.

Send your essay to gomez@fat-bike.com with the words Read this Tupper! as the subject. You have until midnight on Tuesday, January 12th to enter to win our last 40 below bag!

    Congratulations Jeff! Great video, fires up my fat stoke. Fat-Biking in Scotland is on my bucket list. Excellent footage of an amazing place.

    Wow, a huge thanks to Tupper for picking my tour of Conwy in North Wales as the winning video!
    Looking forward to the Mukluk wearing the bag and I’ll have to get in contact about a frame bag too!!
    And yes, the Welsh flag does have a dragon on it. And they (apparently) can be seen around the hills……

    Cheers guys
