    psa to all you fat bikers

    hey, just alittle help for you

    we all know fat biking it kind a pointless, but that's maybe just me

    snow is for snow sports not for bike riding, i know that might be hard to understand

    BUT just like mud don't go out there and trash the trails with your big six inch wheels, I'm about done dealing with a big rut down the middle of a trail, my cross country skis don't exactly glide to well where you **** up the trail because you can't seem to get up the slippery hill so you just crap it all up,

    give it a brake, if the snow is soft like mud don't destroy the trails and rune my ski experence

    fat bike fad will prolly be gone in another year just like 29ers

    So... you want fat bikers to write runes along the trail to make your experience better?

    Maybe YOU need a new winter pastime, like, being a sniveling, whining beotch behind a computer keyboard.
    Oh, my bad, you already have that down. And learn to spell you moron.
    Go whine on some ski forum.

    first ride this morning was hard - first bike on the trail and I had to push it up many of the uphills (I do not have a fat bike)

    the second ride of the day made me really appreciate the fat bike fad - there must've been a group of 4 fat bikers that laid down a super nice trail - very much appreciated!!

    Ha ha, great classic MTBR bi*chfest post! As a Nordic and backcountry skier I can see where the OP is coming from. Bikes - fat bikes included- can make a mess of an XC ski track. Fat bikes are fine in the right place, but maybe those who are into them should consider their impacts on others when they decide where to ride. Think about how MTBers whine about horses.

    Where were the complaints when we were using skinnier-tire bikes on the trails???

    Oh wait, they were all directed to the snowshoers! Doh!

    Trolls need to toughen up and stop whining.

    Just wondering how many ski trails there are that are not open to bicycles. I'm thinking there are plenty.

    Yeah, it's probably a tug. A random one because they got a lecture from a xc skier while they were biking. The only problem with xc skiing is that...its sometimes serious. Like serious xc biking.

    I'm serious.

    Whereabouts did you race?

    Yep, it's a KTM 300. But those are actually studs, not screws. They're designed for ice/bare frozen ground/packed powder. Not much good in deep snow and they can't hang with real ice screw tires.

    Ice screws look like a ton of fun, but apparently they only last one ride if you ride on anything but pure ice/snow.

    I raced a bunch at Rainbow Falls, was to 200cc state champ a few times.I got to race against Clint Vasholtz (Multiple Pikes Peak winner on bikes and stock cars) when we were on 80cc bikes. They put us with the 125s because there were just 3 of us on 80s, Clint beat them all, even the 125s!! What a day!
    The new tires with the one inch screws are just ridicules on the ice! Once the pro motoX guys got a hold of them the level of competition went ballistic! Fourth gear pinned for 8 laps, I could barley hold on.So sick!
    Your right about those studs, you didn't dare let them touch anything but ICE.... Happy trails, your set up looks fun!!

    When I fat bike in the snow, I drag a pair of xc skis behind to cover my tracks.

    It's okay, as long as your grooming has separate and marked skate, classic, snowshoe, fatbike, and hiking/non-winter-mtb/canine tracks.

    Oh yeah, I loved to do that as well! One year I took my rally car up there with 1000 moto Ice racing studs in the tires, it worked good!

    Apologies ripper roo, as an ambassador of fat biking let me remind everybody the first rule of fat biking etiquette. Do not go fat biking in soft or flaccid conditions. I post this image for purposes of positive reinforcement.

    This thread is priceless!
    I can just imagine the uptight XC skier, all red in the face and shaking, trying not to spill his glass of white wine all over the keyboard.
    Reminds me of ancient Nordic proverb I once overheard "The 80's called and wants their ski's back dork!"
    This is a BIKE forum BTW.

    Hey OP, where do you ride? Might need to call up a few of my snow mobile friends. They make amazing snownuts that promote excellent XC courses!
