The Weekly Dose of Fat – Black Fly-Day 2021

Let’s just jump right in with Nick Barbetta’s Krampus on the north rim of grand canyon! #visualslpendor

Newness

Leialoha Concetta Sousa-Sommo Fat Biking in Alaska

Terrene released their new tweener 27.5 x 4.3 Yippy Ky Yay fat bike tire this week. It’s sort of a goldilocks fat knobby varietal for the ‘one tire does it all’ crowd. Don’t get too excited because these won’t be available until sometime around January ’22 (maybe). The Krueger Bros collaborated with Corvus Cycles on the YKY and that makes this new tire something to look forward to riding as soon as we can get our hands on a set.

Kenneth Johansen only sent along hashtag messages with his shot – #salsabeargrease #altariver #norway #altanorway. I thought that it looked pretty groovy, so here are some hashtags that I like #keepfatbikesfun #fourseasonfatbikes #itsamarvelousnightforamoondance

Bike Black Friday

Well, brothers and sisters, that wraps up another month of fat-bike fun. I’m going to go ride bikes later today because I’d go for a fun bike ride over shopping almost every dang time. We’re headed into fat-bike primetime and it looks like this season could be full of possibilities for #fatbikefun
