Have you ever wondered how cool it would have been , to have ridden a fat-bike, when you were a little kid? I think about it all of the time, when I’m cruising along the sandy singletrack trails or out on the beach. My bike helps to transport me back to my boyhood….riding my sting ray along the industrialized Des Plaines River, trails in the C(r)ook County Forest Preserves. There’s no question in my mind, that my fat-bike is the ‘best bet’ to invoke my personal childhood, happy place. I’ve got plenty of other kinds of bikes that I ride, depending on the flavor day and they all rock, but I really love the feel of 26 x 4. And speaking of Rock……At least we had pretty kick ass rock and roll, from before I was born all the way till when all of this is just good memories (but imagine how cool it would have been crank’n up some Zepplin cruise’n your local bandito trails on a fattie!). Kids on fat-bikes and Metal…..well that’s like peanut butter and jelly! The music in our video short is Downtrodden by Black Teeth. Nate (from Black Teeth) was a guest on the Bike Black Ribbon Hour Show # 4. The BRBH has hosted a series of folks from the bicycle cult(ure) that also happen to wrench bikes and create music.
