Fat (video) Tuesday – Pat Smage NWA

Over the last few years, there’s been a really interesting Mississippi flyway trail building renaissance that has made Northwest Arkansas the latest mountain bike travel destination. Trail building contractors work on projects up in the Northwoods all summer and then spend their Winters down in Arkansas creating incredible mtb-playgrounds. Our amigo Pat Smage took a trip down to NWA and this week’s Fat (video) Tuesday features Pat riding his Fatback Skookum as only Pat can!

Win a Stasher Insulated Bike Bag in the Niche Bike News CONTEST

We have four of these insulated bags from Stashers that we’ll award in the next four NBN Updates coming this spring. Each bag comes with a mini reusable ice pack and a can koozie! To enter send us your name address and anything else that you think qualifies as a multi-media example of a groovy bicycle niche. That could be a poem, photograph, folk-song, video, dance routine, comedy routine, sage wisdom or dirty limerick. Send your entry to with NBN Contest in the subject line. Prizes are available to US Residents only, due to potential customs charges and the high cost of shipping to other countries. (Sorry but the boss tells me that we’re on a budget!) We’ll choose a winner from the entries that we receive and announce a winner every time that we publish a Niche Bike News Update (till we run out of bags to give away).

    Awesome as always Pat! I like the multiple camera angles and cutting between them!
