    Any new fat?

    Anybody heard/seen anything from Eurobike?
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    This has been posted, but here is a few more pictures from a different source:
    Nicolai Argon Fat: una tedesca dalle gomme giganti | MTB-Forum.it

    Fatties make their way to Germany | Bicycle Retailer and Industry News

    Another company:
    Vorschau: Eurobike 2013 News, Trends & mehr - mtb-zeit.de
    "The company Velotraum presented at the press conference, the Fat Bike pilgrims: Fat-bike is the best traction on soft surfaces such as sand, mud, gravel and snow. Thus becoming increasingly the winter for touring cyclists. The "Pilgrim" is a touring bike on extra wide mountain bike tires that measure 4.8 inches instead of the normal 2 to 2.4 inches :"

    On a serious note... anyone know anything about those grips? They don't look like Ergon and seem to have a weird curve in? May be just the picture. (not talking about the bar ends).

    They look like a set Ergon GP4's to me.

    Why someone would name their fat bike "Artic", and not "Arctic" is beyond me (other than trademark issues).
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I thought much the same, but then thought maybe it's so flexy that it feels hinged, ie articulated.
    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    ...looks like Sandman ditched "the Fork-With-Many-Names" in favor of the G-Answer Flame...also pretty sure that FK007 carbon fork is Fatback's new carbon fork...

    I believe that Sandman plans to offer the German-A fork on the high end ti model, and the Taiwanese fork on the aluminum bikes.

    I am assuming no announcement from Rock Shox, or would they wait for Interbike?

    So does anyone know if the new tire announcement from 45nrth was something FAT? it was referenced that there was going to be a new tire announcement from them today on the twentynineinches eurobike coverage, but I have seen nothing today. I am hoping they are "giving" us a 5" husker du for this season.
