    I really like the wheels! The end product should look cool (and different with the silver parts and blue bars.

    Yeah man!!! I was thinking the silver rims and silver bits all around would make it stand out to other Mukluks in the area. I haven't many silver Fatbike rims on the net or in person. Stoked to get it built soon.

    Nice! When do you think you'll have 'er ready? I was thinking about trying that old irragtion trail above Georgetown sometime. Hoping someone has packed it down.

    What an awesome bike that'll be, especially for the budget you said you were working within. Makes me wish I had more patience when I was pulling the trigger.

    Per the lady I gotta sell my road bike 1st b4 I buy any more parts. Hopefully that'll be soon but I got the Jet 9 back up and running last night so G town is a possibility.
