Fatty Farm Field Report


The Fatty Farm Field Report is brought to by Ritchey. The folks at Ritchey have a special offer to our readers and listeners on their Commando Frame and fork for just $375. Just use the discount code “Julio” at checkout. 


We wrapped up a 5 part series of Gnome-Proof Gear from our Bike Black Ribbon Test Crew. Now it’s time to hear from our readers about what you’ve found indispensable to your fat-bike lifestyle. Think of something that you’ve used and abused over the last few seasons and would go out and buy again. Then take a good clear picture of that item and write a paragraph that describes your reasoning behind presenting the highest honor that can be given – the Gnome-Proof Seal of Approval! Place your words and pixels in an email to gomez@fat-bike.com and we’ll compile the best stories in our next series of Episodes.

Kevin Metcalf  and Paul McKinley are the winner’s of our Gnomenclature Contest – They both won a Bike Black Ribbon Society Get Lost Merit Badge and some Fat-bike.com Stickers!

So how about the response on that TT Fat-bike from last week’s Weekly Dose?
