Today’s subject for Wallpaper Wednesday is from, well…me. The picture was taken maybe halfway up and down Switchback at Levis. That sweet sliver of watermelon sugar is a Rocky Mountain Blizzard C50 rocking a Wren Sports inverted suspension fork. If you look closely, you’ll spy the ‘sex-mullet’ wheel setup. The deep-v Borealis Carbondale rim is just 50mm wide up front, and the rear is the stock 80mm wide Mulefut. This setup has got all kinds of giddyup! I’m looking forward to riding the Blizzard on snow with the full rally-sport package…Hed Wheels, Yippy Ki Yays, with the rigid carbon fork. Slack-Fat with a dropper post is the wave of the future. The good news is that you can slacken your current bike with an adaptive headset and external droppers are slick as hell.
So today we shared a pretty picture for your desktop along with some editorial comments about fat bikes.

There’s a new episode of the Danger Gnome Podcast coming up at the end of the week. So stay tuned to this fat channel! Felices caminos amigos.
Sticker it Forward
If you’d like some stickers for you…your ride buddies…or maybe the bartender with the best tattoos at the local brewhouse… 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
