    Not at all. Just because the wheels are heavy doesn't mean the rest of the bike has to be.

    The scrappers wont come and grab my non recyclable frame from the dumpster when it becomes obsolete. I will probably just have to burn it, along with the tires and some 'black water' from my car's last fluid change.
    Does carbon have a hand signal like \m/etal does?

    I think I have a good one that I use :thumbsdown:

    More options are better.

    Or we could go back to only steel frames and the choice of one tire....please no.

    we just need to appear as a large enough demographic for the carbon makers to sit up and take notice. Or just sign some kind of mass purchase statement document...

    This has caught my attention as well.

    Could be a nice and simple project.....

    ....and carbon fat rims.....carbon fat BB...

    Hmm, sounds pretty time consuming

    Love my tank

    I have an original purple Pugsley and love my tank! I think it is great that new products are coming out and that people have money to burn on carbon forks, super light rims and such. It is great to ride these bikes year round but in the end they are meant for winter riding where you end up wearing tons for clothes and can only fly down the trail so fast!
    Weight wiennies may have their place but I don't think the area of the Fat Bike is it.

    Just my opinion of course.

    Well, it was a choice between putting the money into a hedge fund or the bike. The bike won out. I have a 40lb Pugs and a 28lb "weight wienie" fatbike. I love my Pugs, but I feel dirty shameful lust for my Ti fatbike

    I have yet to ride either in the snow. Damn global warming!

    While fat & weight weenie are not synonymous by any stretch the growing trend is multi use accompanied with lighter weight components that = nirvana for many (myself included)

    They may have been originally for winter, although Mr. Molino might dispute that, but they sure are fun in the summer. And if you are wearing tons of clothes in the winter you are probably overdressed.

    ^ Yeah the first time I took mine out was summer and I road shirtless. Among the places I road to was a beach, where whipped around beach goers to show off my new awesomeness. Then I kicked sand in the face of a guy and road off into the sunset.

    I've got to say I'm surprised this hasn't already happened. There's nothing cosmic about making a 68mm bb/135mm rear into a100mm bb/170mm spaced rear. It's a knockoff O'Beast away from eBay awesomeness.

    Did you steal his girlfriend and then he showed up a week later after buying a Charles Atlas manual and punched you in the face?

    No sir, you are mistaken.

    In the end, these bikes are meant to be yet another Surly chameleon.
