    Anyone ridden cannell plunge on a fatty??

    I just did today, damn what a trail!!
    Close to 4k climbing including going to Sherman peak. Over 9k of descending. What an amazing 30 mile ride outside of Kernville, CA.
    Fatty handled the tech great!!!

    I've not but places such as this always stir interest for me. Seems about a 6hr drive for me but worth it i'm sure.

    Wow, that sounds amazing. Have done the plunge many times. What an adventure on a fat. I haven't yet but sounds interesting.

    I recall the plunge being very sandy when I rode it, as are a lot of the other trails up there. The mountain rock just turns to dust and several of the trails are shared with motos. I could see it doing very well especially on the actual plunge. Looks like you had a great trip!

    Noble is a lot of fun on the fat bike. It's when I wish I had my lefty set up.

    I'll probably be taking my fatty up there next summer.

    Yes, most of the trails we rode were very loose and sandy....my riding buddies all commented that I had the ideal bike for trip
    Was a little skeptical before...just all the climbing, and the hardtail...but it was great out there.
