    burro bikes were/are(?) crazy. I love the fat tires and the small tires but I think in my environment i would get to see a lot of rocks and a lot of cactus up close. Be really fun on less rocky, twisty turny type trails I would think.

    I owned a Burro Bike for a very short amount of time.

    Very, very short. Figured out all I needed to know very, very quickly:-)

    Snowcats' little brother...

    ...litterally...if those are .44 Magnums they were a product of Simon Rauker's (sp?)...Mr. Snowcat himself...
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    Here's what I had put together recently. Sun Rhynolite rims & 1.95 Hookworms... I could go with some fatter, knobby tires, if I cut the rear v-brakes tabs off, but this bike is just a runabout for me so it's not necessary.

    I have an inexplicable fondness for small wheels - which has lead to me buying some really oddball bikes.

    But for lively handling they are pretty hard to beat.

    A real challenge on mtb territory, but an absolute hoot.

    I had a lot of fun on this






    There's nothing like the feel of achievement when you get a totally unsuitable bike in the wrong place


    (Top of the mountain)




    or when you go into fatbike territory








    But I think I'd still like an updated version of one of those Burros with 4" wide tyres.


    I don't suppose anyone has a frame and fork they want rid off?

    Those did. But I replaced the front with a single ring & 150mm arms, so no problems now.

    I'm thinking the same thing, now that the Massif is out; buy one, just for the wheels, then get a sm fat-bike frame to build it on.

    I bought pair of 20" trial 47mm rims and a pair of 19" Creepy crawler Maxxis tires.
    i've got hubs (100 & 135mm) in stock
    Just waiting for a second hand burros frame or else.
