    I'm in Half Moon Bay and living a few blocks from the beach has had me lurking here on the fat bikes forum...

    Any of you guys know of any bike shops in the Bay Area that keep fat bikes in stock? I realize I'll probably need to order exactly what I want..but I'd sure like to take a fat tire bike for a ride before taking the plunge.

    Iv'e been calling Truckee home for quite some time...Just took my first Fat ride on the shore of Donner Lake. It was fun mobbing over some of the big rocks with low tire pressure. Looking forward to some snow biking this winter

    I just relocated to Sacramento about two months ago from Seattle. I sold my Pugs a while back, but have been thinking of getting an aluminum fatbike for bikepacking and general meandering.

    I was up at Salmon Falls last weekend on the low water area wishing I had some fat!

    kool... we should get together for a ride...do you have a Light ? I do like to nite ride. the snow should light up real well. I've got some ideas on where to ride but haven't tried them yet. I think the shoreline at Boca would be pretty good....I have a friend who rides the xc trails inTahoe City

    agreed as i enjoy meeting new folk, riding etc. however no light. I rode the emigrant tr about 3 weeks ago but on my full squishy bike. I started @ tahoe donner campground on 89 out & back was a good ride.

    Thought I'd pipe in. I too live in Truckee, and my Beargrease is in the mail. I'd like to ride with some locals too. You own TOHD?

    We have a BONC (Bicyclist of Nevada County) trail maintenance/ride at Bullards Bar on December 1st which happens to land on International FatBike Day. It would be cool to have a bunch of NorCal/Reno Fatties there. I think Bullards will be a great ride for Fatties. It about 45 minutes north of Nevada City on the way to D-ville.

    Testing the new "fattie" on local Nevada City trail

    I've had the Muk3 for 2 days and I already think it will be my only "horse" soon. I'm slower but having more fun than ever on 2 wheels. I can't wipe the grin off my face. I made this video just to play around with the camera and show a guy riding gratuitous "fatness" on a NorCal local trail.

    emigrant is a favorite of mine, there is a way to do it as a loop that I prefer over the out n back. Days being short as they are lights make for more options. I night ride with a small group but there are only a 2 other fat bikes among us.Looks like my next few weekends will be out of town.

    a loop would be sweet and having only been 1 time i didn't explore much but i know once closer to stampede i saw numerous trails.

    Anyone know of Al fabricators in the Sac area? I'm interested in having my Voodoo Bokor modded to take fatties.

    Hey man,

    Looks like it's gonna be a washout, so we've postponed the official club trail maint/ride part. You willing to ride in the rain with me?
