Jeffery’s photo taken on Sylvan Lake in Alberta, Canada last winter when the temp was about 2 deg C that day, remind me of good times to come.

We are starting to get a good collection of links to Global Fat-bike Day Rides coming up on December 3rd, 2016 (see below). If you are planning to have a ride on or around the 3rd to celebrate, add it to our Fat-bike Event Calendar and let me know at sven@fat-bike.com as well and we will include a link to your event in the Friday Weekly Dose of Fat posts. We may even feature your event on The Weekly Dose of Fat Radio Show!

Sven, Gomez and JK will be back next week for Show #112 where we will talk about event of the week, The Pie Burner Fat-bike Ride, with Joe Sacco and we will welcome Alex Naggar from RSD bikes in Toronto to talk Fat and Plus Bikes. Plus, they have a “kickass” sale going on now on some of their 2016 bike models. Check it out at http://rsdbikes.com.

 

 

The Event of the Week – The IMBA World Summit

2016-imba-world-summit-logo

The International Mountain Bike Association is hosting a World Summit in Bentonville, Arkansas. The World Summit program includes keynote speakers, educational sessions, an expo, networking and ample time to explore local trails. I was told by an IMBA source that IMBA plans to discuss and determine additional policy for e-bikes on singletrack at the summit. If you have an opinion about e-bikes, you can share your thoughts with the Summit Director at WorldSummit16@imba.com.

Our amigo Tupper just took possession of a Carbon Bucksaw. After reading Tupp’s review of the Trek Farley EX, and our headline that read “Trek’s New Bucksaw Killer”, our cousins from Salsa sent Tupper, their top of the line dual suspension fat-bike, with all the bells and whistles….literally the pinnacle of Salsa’s fat-bike technology. This, of course, sets the stage for some ‘head to head’ competition for our entertainment. It’s gonna be like battle-bots up there on the tundra! I wonder if Trek will answer and overnight their top of the line, OCLV Carbon Farley EX 9.8? Good Luck and God Speed Tupp-Tupp! May the Gnome Be With You!

Next Week at Fat-Bike.com

Next week we bring you a first look at the Specialized Levo and the Review of the Blackjack Fate. Somewhere in the middle of the week, we’ll be putting up new wallpaper and recording Fat-Bike Radio’s version of the Weekly Dose of Fat, where we’ll be giving away a brand new Surly bike to some lucky boy or girl, along with a 1UP USA rack and a set of Surly Marge Lite Rims in our Global Fat-Bike Design Contest! We’ll share all of the banners for folks from around the world to feature on regional GFBD events and celebrations and we hope to call some of the winners and surprise them! Then we coast into the weekend again for some great autumn trails!
