Foto Gordo – Kansas Backroads

Foto Gordo posts from Kansas two weeks in a row? What’s the world coming too? Do you smell some sort of fat bike conspiracy? And what about that seat? Is that secret alien technology? Today’s shot comes to us from David Briggeman. I asked David about his saddle and this is what he typed into his phone. “I sought out “alternative” seats when I started riding after dealing with intense discomfort from the standard saddle style.  I tried out a few ergonomic seats before settling on this spiderflex.  I’m not sure I’d ride bicycles without it. At least not enjoy it as much.  The same can be said about fat bikes. I farm in south central Kansas. I have ridden a karate monkey and long haul trucker across the United States on pavement but I detest traffic. So I now take to the quiet dirt roads and wheat fields on a moonlander or a pugsley. My local backroads can be very sandy necessitating plus or fat tires if you wanna ride with ease!”

It just seems like a real load of mullarkey, but what the hell do I know? I ride a seat most people cannot tolerate and I think that it rides great and really…who doesn’t dislike traffic? To each their own…But detest? #notit

Sticker it Forward

How do you like the new sticker and jersey design?

If you’d like some stickers for you…your ride buddies…or maybe the looper with the best tattoos at the local country club… send us a photo of your local fat-bike playground and an address so the gnomes down in the mailroom can jet them, babies, to the post office. My email is gomez@fat-bike.com. Put Shreddy Yeti in the subject line and stay tuned for some sort of group jersey order like we did last year. ¡Las bicis Gordas, para ti!
