The Occasional Dose of Fat – Show Number 107 – Friday, August 26th, 2016
This is my first fatty (I’ve been dreaming of owning a fatbike for about 15 years), and my first carbon framed bike. Its pretty light and rides like a dream. The location is Holkam Beach, in North Norfolk on the east coast of England, the photo being taken on the bike’s maiden voyage, I’d picked it up the day before driving to the coast for a holiday!
Tonight Sven, Gomez and JK are jpined by Special Guest, Bill Fleming, Iditarod 1000 racer and owner of the Trek Store in Anchorage as well as call-inn guests!
The Weekly Dose of Fat is brought to you by the Surly Karate Monkey because ninjas ride steel bikes. Learn more about bikes and ninjas at – http://surlybikes.com
