It’s pert near fall so that means that it’s time to think about the OG of fat-bike holidays – Global Fat-Bike Day. As we’re all aware, this year is fraught with pandemic concerns and I’ve been spending a fair amount of time trying to come up with a plan that addresses everyone’s concerns. I have […]
Craig Doell sent us a shot of his Salsa Blackborrow (before it went sport-wagon) up in Manitoba! This particular model year of the Blackborrow is one of the only mass-produced fat-bikes sold in the US that can run Vee Tire 2XL’s. Mi Amigo, Ward, rides one and runs shaved 2XL’s for the beach. It looks […]
John Climber is back with this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday. John’s a veteran contributor of gorgeous fat-bike pixels from the British Isles and beyond.

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday comes from a time when we could ride the shores of Lake Michigan on a hot summer day and spend the entire day riding our fat-bikes and stopping to session driftwood ramps. At the end of the ride, there’s usually a good chance for a cold beer and maybe… if you’re […]
Today’s Wallpaper Wednesday comes to us from Matt Sundquist from Brainerd, Minnesota. Matt entered this sterling example of what we’ve been known to call a ‘flotilla of fat-bikes’ atop an old school bus. When we asked him to share a bit about his photo and this is what he replied. Da Bus is located next […]
Today’s Wallpaper takes me back to the Summer of 2012! My amigo James and I took a trip along the South shore of Lake Superior in the UP of Michigan. Great times riding and bikepacking on the beach. Back then, I rode a Surly Moonlander named Thparkle. That bike (fully loaded) crab walked down the […]

Hi all, I’m Mirko from Italy. My Wallpaper Wednesday was taken from “Madonna del Giogo” above beautiful Iseo Lake in Franciacorta ( famous for white sparkling wine!) 80km east from Milan. It’s a beautiful 9km path with 800mt+ climbing as many other local hills are no higher than 1200mt and you can enjoy rides of […]

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday hits Spring like a hammer and a nail. Late March and early April are mud season up north. Sometimes it’s so bad the only option is to become a roadie! Other times your can explore places that no other bicycle dare roam. This is Kyle Ocho’s first WW feature, but I […]
This week we’ve got my Fatback Corvus FLT named Ten Beers at the Knik Glacier in Alaska. Please consider this as a sort of digital picture postcard to all of our fat-bike amigos out there across the globe – with gnomes from all of us at Fat-bike.com. I’ll be posting my ride report from the […]

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday is Brandon Bender’s sophomore feature and is what you’d call a ‘double-wide trailer’ sort of opus. Brandon sized and cropped the photo such that it will perfectly fill dual 1920×1080 monitors side by side. The location of the shot is one of my favorite beach towns on the other side of the […]
This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday feature photo comes to us from Mark “Jake the Snake” Jacobson out in Truckee, California.

Previously you’ve posted a picture […]

Our Amigo from the Empire State, Bob Rainville also helps out with the Saratoga Fat Bike Festival in Up-State New York.

Ahhh Wallpaper Wednesday…the middle of the week and the beginning of the Weekend! I found this inspiring image of an Extrawheel trailer matched up with a loaded fat-bike by a cat that goes by Fat Mongrel and then I busted out the photoshop pixel blender and came up with this little number. We’ll be testing […]

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday features one of our favorite excuses to go for a ride – The Full Moon!. René Albisser sent us a couple of excellent photos from a full moon night excursion that he and his amigos did in the Swiss Alps.
Kind of like the Rockford Files, but instead of a Pontiac Firebird, Bob drives a Surly Ice Cream Truck.

Our Amigo Monte McAnulty dropped us a line from Vegas and what did our eyes behold? November snow in the desert! He didn’t even know that he was entering the Foto Gordo Contest, but he won anyway. Sometimes you’re just that lucky. Here’s what Monte had to say about his award-winning pixels. Hey Gomez! Fat […]

Otis! My Man! Mother Nature gave the gift of an early autumn blanket of snow to go out and play bikes…so like a kid on Christmas morning, I saddled up Otis and hit the local twisties just after first light. The best snow was on open grassy areas and it didn’t last for long, but […]
Winter Wonderland The wind was lightly blowing all of the fresh snow off of the trees in a sparkling light show. The low slung rays of autumnal morning sunshine always provide some magic to the landscape. Mother Nature gave the gift of an early autumn blanket of snow to go out and play bikes…so like […]
