    To increase the versatility of the FatBike I am branching out. With the optional three point hitch and PTO attachment, you can plow the back 40 in the morning and ride in the afternoon. Eyup.

    Trust me, I grew up in the Midwest

    You know, people who buy such vehicles are going expect free green-and-yellow caps they can wear while leaning against pickups and sipping black coffee as they make predictions about rain.
    Enjoying the meaningful pursuit of meaningless fun.

    Nobody said it would be easy entering the exciting and booming farm implement market. Maybe a handlebar mounted spittoon would be a good idea? Now if I can just keep my arms and legs out of the spokes.

    Larry,
    Yup, the rims were painted with jen-you-wine powder coat in official Deere John yellow before I laced them. $35/ rim at Advanced Powdercoating in Big Lake.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my friend. Yeah, finding a yellow saddle was not easy but had to be done. It kinda needs yellow grips too to round out the package.

    All good ideas, I'll get right on it. A snowblower attachment would be a good choice for this winter.

    Think about how fun a human powered quad would be, with the 3.7's... you could put a plow on it.

    I wish I could weld...

    Oury makes some nasty yellow grips. Our LBS was clearing them out in the fall for next to nothing, too bad I didn't grab a pair I'd have sent them your way.

    WOW!
    Maybe i'm the only redneck in here, but that is one hot fatbike.
    Now, if I could just get a year's worth of scholarships--hint, hint, Wildfire--i might be able to find the cash for the purtiest snobike in north america...

    another beautiful creation.

    Fashionable? I've been called many things, but never that.

    Here was my bike at the time, before the 29er. I have a can of Cat-yellow farm equipment paint sitting in the garage to re-paint it, once I can figure out how to get all the &#^$^# duct tape off. (Note to self -- no more duct tape!) I'm regretting not buying those yellow grips now.

    Now that is a very loud (and very sweet) bike. I love the color scheme. Awesome.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    The powdercoated rims really help pull the whole look off. I love it! Why not have a little fun with a bike that has silly-huge wheels anyway.

    Shucks, y'all.

    Glad you like the color scheme (except for CarlH, that is. Obviously no taste in garish paint jobs ) It was ordered by a customer in Denver who I think is a big John Deere fan. Stay tuned for the next one with glow in the dark painted Remolino rims.
