The Occasional Dose of Fat – Show Number 107 – Friday, August 26th, 2016


This photo is of Paul’s Sonder Vir Fortis from the new bike division of British outdoor online retailer Appkit. Paul says:
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!

    I’m trying the code to get the kicka$$ deal on the ritchey commando but it won’t take on the website. When does the deal start?

    Great show as always!

      I contacted Ritchey and they said there was a glitch and that it should work now. The coupon code gets applied near the end of the checkout process.
