    Black ops pug

    well its a week into owning the most fun two wheeler i have ever had.

    i have made a few changes, some for personel preferance of components and looks and some to improve traction. these include BFL's front and rear, the back one running backwards for better grip, both at 8 psi (cheers saltyman ) crank bros riser bars, lock on grips tompson post ,stem and seat collar (they look nicer than surly bits ) fizik tundra saddle because i like them

    it ride very well, its heavy weighing about 35lbs but its just so much fun, i am going to remove one cog from the rear cassete as there is slight chain tire contact on the lowest gear, done about 35 miles so far and just keep laughing evey time i take it out .

    Sweet! I'm waiting on my necromancer. Should have arrived at the shop today..... Went with HD's, but I keep flip floping if I should of went with the BFL's. Got antsy and pulled the trigger, because I didn't want to wait on a 907 in my size. Should be a good place to start.

    My first fat bike too. I will ride this one a long while, it just rides so sweet. I do love black as much as the next guy, but I do feel like I am hunting for hobbit while I ride it in the woods.So dark.

    Nice bike! I just built up a Neck Romancer frame myself but after much deliberation I went with Nates instead of BFL's.

    Took fatty for a spin round Greenham Common, it used to be a US AIRFORCE base but has been returned to common land since the end of the cold war, mind you it was pretty cold up there today



    a moke up of a plane that the fire crews used to practice putting out



    the silos where they used to keep the big nukes still behind 3 sets of razor wire



    the control tower, i think the only tires fatter than mine belonged to a c5 galaxy
